Support us at and get in FREE, as well as thanks on our website and other occasional perks! Working on a game? Bring whatever equipment you need to run it (or even just some screenshots, designs or prototypes) to share with others and seek some feedback. Find an available desk at the start, set up and show off your work. Or just come along, network, hang out and play some locally made games. We also welcome indie tabletop designers. Come along to show off and playtest your card games, board games and tabletop roleplaying games. Our tabletop focus is getting bigger and bigger. We'd love to see more board and card games at our events. Portfolio Reviews - In the world of games artists your portfolio is key. It will make or break job applications. Whether applying for jobs or just levelling your skills an outside eye and knowledge valuable.

What we're about

Hi all, before attending one of our meet ups or posting in here, we'd really appreciate it if you read through just a few small rules to ensure everyone has a great time! If you have any questions please DM us or post in the forum and we'll do our best to answer quickly ๐Ÿ™‚

* Treat everyone with respect - Depending on the level of disrespect shown, anyone who fails to do this will be warned or banned immediately.

* Racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic or any other exclusionary language will not be tolerated - The post will be deleted and the poster warned. Repeat offenders will be banned. If the first offence is severe enough, as arbitrated by the moderators, banning will occur without a warning.

* Inflammatory posts will be deleted and the poster will be warned. Repeat offenders will be banned.

* Feedback is always welcome, however please ensure it is delivered in a manner that is constructive and helpful. Failure to do so may result in deletion of posts or removal from the group over repeat offenses.

* No posting about Gamer Gate - find somewhere else to post about it if you must. The post will be deleted and the poster warned. Repeat offenders will be banned.

* Swearing - it is understood that a certain amount of swearing is standard behaviour in Australia. That said, excessive swearing will not be tolerated - it would be better to use your vocabulary and find a better way of expressing yourself.

Let's create an inclusive and constructive space so we can learn from each other and make the most of being part of what I think is generally an amazing community.
