     It was a fun time and a great way to help others that are working on their own fledgling designs and a great resource for anyone interested in designing their own.

    Erik D. on Dec 16, 2014.

  • Game Makers Guild

     Great group. Super friendly and welcoming to newcomers. I was also impressed with their organization: with 12 or 14 games to play test, we were divided into groups and up and running within 10 minutes of the start time. 

    Chuck H. on Oct 7, 2014.

  • Game Makers Guild

     Good feedback, I liked it. I like that a lot of the others have a strategic game mind to help with constructive criticism.

  • Game Makers Guild

     The best place for quality feedback on game designs. Extremely smart and savvy group of folks that attend these meet-ups! 

    Todd G. on Aug 21, 2013.

  • Game Makers Guild

     Great time playtesting some new games. 

    Steve G on Aug 21, 2013.

  • Game Makers Guild

     If you've got an idea for a game kicking around (and a prototype to play), this is the group for you. Likewise, games need playtesters, so even if you don't have a prototype, this is an excellent place to learn and play new games. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. 

    Justin C. on Jul 9, 2013.

  • Game Makers Guild

     Getting to show your game to other people who make games is great! Invaluable feedback from other game designers. Also getting to play test other games is fun and eye-opening in and of itself 

    Dan S. on Jun 15, 2013.

  • Game Makers Guild

     The best damn resource for game designers in the world. 

    Sam L. on Jan 16, 2013.

     A nice bunch of helpful, intelligent people and a great idea! 

    Mark on Jun 13, 2012.

  • Game Makers Guild

     Like Donna Douglas in the classic episode of Twilight Zone, I feel like I'm among my own kind here...a place where getting excited about esoteric aspects of game design, like forcing factors, physical prototype considerations, come-back strategies, randomizing techniques and the like, is not considered odd, but beautiful. : ^ ) The atmosphere is friendly and informal, the participants very smart and creative. A great opportunity to share ideas and be inspired by like-minded folks.
