Playtest Meetup @ the Engagement Lab - 3rd Floor (Emerson College)

Interested in indie board game development? Bring a prototype or just a critical eye to New England's largest group of tabletop game developers and playtesters! We do ask for a $2 donation for non-members attending this event. This will be collected at the event. For more information about membership, please visit http://www.gamemakersguild.com/about/membership/ Venue Details: 160 Boylston St, Boston, MA 02116 • Right next to the Steinway Piano sign, above the antique shop. • Ring the bell for floor three. It is below the one marked "Engagement Lab" with a sticker. • Take the elevator to the 3rd floor. It's old, slow, and creepy, but rest assured it does work. If you have any questions or if you have any trouble getting in, text Tim at[masked]

"North o' Boston" Playtest Meetup in Burlington, MA 6:30PM @ Counterplay Comics

Address: 279 Cambridge St Unit #9, Burlington, MA 01803 Notes for this meeting: - **NEW LOCATION** for Counterplay. Not in Woburn. - Trying a slightly EARLIER START TIME (6:30PM) This venue is north of Boston. We'll use the same format as a normal GMG meeting. This will be in conjunction with another MeetUp that will be meeting weekly on this day of the week here, so hopefully we'll have "normal" players to join us.
