Chicago Game Designers Meetup

The purpose of this Meetup is to build the game design community in Chicago by bringing together game designers of every stripe (board, video, social, card, you name it!). During meetings we share ideas, playtest, brainstorm, work on current projects and start new ones, meet one another, and generally help connect game designers to the resources they need to create and improve their games.

We meet on the 2nd Wednesday of every month in your friendly, neighborhood English pub: the Red Lion in Lincoln Square (4749 N Rockwell... two blocks north of the Rockwell stop on the Brown line). The Red Lion is also accessible by the Lawrence bus (Lawrence and Rockwell) and there is plenty of free parking nearby.

    Great to meet you all, I was really glad to see that we got into some actually play/critique after some very helpful discussion around strategy. I'll be back, with bells on!

    A very helpful session...thanks for the feedback on my game -- it tells me just what needs to be changed (I'm hoping to submit it soon). It was good meeting all of you.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
