Looking for some board gaming goodness, a group to hit the newest superhero or Kaiju flick with, or a pub quiz team? This is the group for you! We have a lot of regular activities centered in the center of KC and the Overland Park areas. We've expanded recently to include a lot more actives than board gaming alone, hence the and stuff addition. Take a look around, see if some of our activities and members seem like a good fit for you, then stop by for an event! We have a very diverse membership and I'm certain you too can find a niche!
If you think you have an event that suits this group, please tell us about it! We don't bite, though we do ask about suggested venues for events. That seems the be the biggest difficulty we run into as a group.
The Kansas City Game Designers group is made up of game designers and general board game enthusiasts who meet together regularly to playtest game prototypes and discuss various topics in board and card game design. Following best practices, we are moving our playtesting online. Join us on our discord server (visible after your RSVP). Playtests will utilize a variety of online tools depending on how the designer chooses to run their playtest. Possibilities include Tabletop Simulator, Tabletopia, Roll20, or Zoom. You can also choose to just hang out in the lobby and talk board game design!
Everyone is welcome, whether you're looking to design a game or just help playtest. For more info, visit kansasgamedesigners.com
