What we're about

This group is for board game designers and people who want to play board games before anyone else in the world! The group meets to play-test games in the design phase. We will also provide constructive criticism, design suggestions and industry support to each other. This group is also designed for networking and shooting the breeze.

Design, Play, Improve, Repeat!

Needs a location

Come try out your or someone else's new game. Get it ready for GenCon and Protospiel Chicago! Come test what people are taking to these events and are pitching to publishers.

Designers: Bring your game in ANY state - just an idea in your head, or a sketch in pencil on paper, all the way up to crafted components and printed boards.

Playtesters: Come and try out new (work-in-progress) and interesting (dice/card/board) games, and give the designers helpful comments to make their game better.

Not sure if this is for you? Stop by for an hour or for the whole night and just check it out! We're a very laid-back group. We typically break into several smaller groups to play a game, then mix it up for the next game, and so on.

Looking forward to seeing everyone!
