    I've asked the meetup organisers to setup a recurring meetup for this. Does 3rd Sun suit everybody?

    Hey folks - would have loved to have made it but was out of town.

    How did it go? What games were played/tested? How many people turned up? And when will the next one be!

      Me and Nikolai were there and we looked briefly at my Crystal Singer game, and then Nikolai's Eurotrash, Worker placement dungeon crawler... And Apparently a couple of other people showed up but couldn't find us, so next time we'll have a plan of where to meet. (i.e. in the middle).

    Great talks today :)
    I forgot to mention when I arrived, that the address listed in the email i received was listed as 2 hepburn street instead of 52' and that I only came down to 52, because I knew there would boardgames there, and that the address might be wrong.

    Maybe others went to number 2 like me, but didnt realise the mistake?

    I turned up with my partner but didn't spot any developers I recognised, so we ended up just ended up playing games with the board gamers. It was a lot of fun.

    The guys over at Board Games in Freeman's bay would love to host this meetup next Sunday the 20th of October after lunch from 1pm to 5pm. We have a group of about 10-20 regular board gamers who would be happy to help play test new games and meet a few aspiring tabletop developers :)

    Let me know if this suits!

    This sounds awesome! I'm designing a board game currently and would eventually like to playtest with people

    I'm interested in this. I recently made a small card game that I'm hoping to do blind tests with. I'm hoping this can be on a weekend because I can't do weekdays =(

    Hadn't noticed but there seems to be a bit of interest in this. Who's keen to try and set a date / location?

    What's the goal of the meetup? Are there people who have already made some progress in this space and are able to show off some of what they have done?

    August 27

    • vIQleS

      The idea was to find out if anyone else was into board game design and if there was enough interest to have a meetup.

    • vIQleS

      I'm working on a couple of designs (for a given value of working :-P). One of which should be at prototype stage, but just needs a bit of finalising.
