Game Designer Sessions

Have an idea for a game?  Enjoy tinkering with rules, graphic design, or game theory?  Maybe you're just looking for someone to bounce ideas off before you commit yourself?

This meetup series is for game designers of all types and experience levels, from those employed in the industry to enthusiastic hobbyists.  Each meeting will include time for play-testing and providing feedback on participant works-in-progress.

Discussion topics, speakers, and other special events will be noted on specific sessions.

If you're bringing something to play-test, please post a comment; tell us a bit about it, what makes it cool or unique, and what you're hoping to learn from the testing.  "Is this worth developing?" is a perfectly valid testing question.

Have an idea for a discussion or special event?  Post it to the Thoughts for 2014 discussion thread in the Designer Round Table.

      I have Collusion, a game of negotiation, secrets, and heavy player interaction in general.

      If I can get the pieces done I'll have an abstract cooperative game to alpha test.

    Hi Kevin! Will 406 and 406a be open early again this week if I were to come early and work on my game?

    August 8, 2014

    • Kevin M.

      Yes, but there's usually meetings going on, so I don't know how much room there'll be to work.

      ok, thanks!
