Tabletop Game Designer Meeting

We're a small group of game designers helping each other develop tabletop games. The meeting is open to anyone interesting in game design, we're especially looking for play-testers to come in and give us feedback on our prototypes.

We meet at the Round Table Pizza on the border of Folsom and Orangevale: 9500 Greenback Ln. ste.#1, Folsom. The meeting starts at 11 am and goes until 4 pm. We use one of the reserved rooms towards the back. Round Table just asks that at least a few of us purchase food, but otherwise there is no requirement to pay for anything.

If you'd like to join our group, please join our Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/474134245971503/

    Sorry people, but circumstances this weekend have restricted my travel plans so I will try displaying my game at the next meetup. It is an academic board game so I will just put that out there for everyone to ponder. That said, I thought I noticed one member of the group having connections to a distributor. Please correct if I am mistaken. Have a great Saturday!

      Sorry you couldn't come. Hopefully next time. Speaking of next time, next month, we'll be doing a special event. We'll be at Great Escape games on October 19th from 1 to 8 pm playtesting games. We're currently calling it Sacramento Unpublished Prototypes. We are open to a few more game designers signing up to get a table and run their game. So if you are interested, I highly recommend joining our Facebook page to get in on the discussions. We'll need a 1-2 sentence bio of yourself and 1-2 sentence description of your game. We'll need that ASAP so we can create fliers and post info online. https://www.facebook.c...­

      As for connections to distributors, one of our members used to run a game store and he's still working on re-opening at some point. I know he was working on getting re-established with a distributor, but I don't think he has yet. He's the one who got our group started at the beginning of the year when his store was still open. Anyway, he won't be able to help you get connected on distributing games since his connection is as a game store. But other members have experience with Kickstarter.

    I'd like to go ... but I have no transportation. (Sac Rt doesn't run out there on Sat. :() If someone can give me a lift ... please let me know. I live by Madison and Sunrise. I don't have a board game in development, but would love to give feedback and be a tester.

    I created an academic board game ages ago and am currently trying to market it and manufacture it. Looking for pointers.
