What we're about

Designing tabletop or digital games? The Lansing Game Designers meet the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of every month in the Summit Comics & Games game room to playtest, brainstorm, and share information about tools and resources. All designers welcome, and eager playtesters won't be turned away either. :)

3rd Thursday meetup

Summit Comics & Games

If you're a designer with a prototype that's ready for playtesting, bring it with you. Please RSVP if this is your first Lansing Game Designers meetup so that we can better schedule the evening's playtesting. There's no guarantee that all prototypes will get played at each meetup, but we make an effort to get new prototypes out first. The meetup generally ends between 9:00 and 10:00. We have primarily playtested tabletop board and card games, but RPGs and digital games are more than welcome. Prototypes can be in any condition from early conceptual model where you're seeking brainstorming input to a late stage polished product that needs minor balancing. On-street parking is available on Washington Street in metered spots; meters stop charging for parking at 6pm. If you purchase games from Summit while you're there, be sure to ask about their Board Game Club. It's free and provides a nice discount.
