We play small press games of the imagination

What we do looks like this!

More examples of actual play by some of our members

How it works: Come along for 12:00pm and meet folk in the main bar. At 12:15-12:20 we head downstairs to the lounge bar and everyone who is going to run something pitches what it is they will run, up to how many players can be accommodated, and what the game is about.

It might be GM led or it might be more of a story game with the expectation that everyone contribute equally. When this is complete everyone says what it is they want to play.

At 12:30 your group grabs a table and starts playing!

The slot finishes by around 4:30pm and the pitching process then repeats at around 5pm for the evening slot. 

Want to pitch for the first time at Indiemeet? We want to help: We love members stepping forward to pitch the games they love. If it's your first time pitching at Indiemeet then tell a host and we'll try to fill that game first.

Newcomers Choice: We love to welcome new people to the meetup. So in the first slot, if it's your first visit to London Indiemeet, then we'll ask you what you want to play and make sure that runs!

    Supervillain-based Power Play was interesting, but the roleplaying was minimal. Thanks to James for pitching it though.

    Had a fun session of Everway using the FU RPG with Nick and Simon.

    Thanks to the four brave souls who played Dark with me. Despite its initial complexity I hope you had fun, I know I did. The game poems were fun too, especially the plague on a Caribbean island and then our epic letter writing session. I hope it less than a year before my third Indiemeet.

      That is very cool indeed, sorry it was a bit complex.

      I was Also wondering if any of those story poem rules have been published anywhere as I would be interested in a copy of them.

    The solstice saw me pop along to my first Indiemeet in ages. St. Christophers remains a sound venue with decent nosh. Stephanie and Anita brought a polished refinement to the classic Indiemeet pitch+zerg.

    Highlights were the revelations that Hope doesn't play Wyldside; Alex lurves My Little Pony; and local celebrity Gary has great taste in loud pink suits.

    The first slot saw a slew of playtest games being pitched. (And wowzors, it was pretty cool to see so many folk with the energy to design games pitching them to a receptive crowd: that aspect of Indiemeet has really flowered.) For all that the game design was cool, I really don't dig playtesting so I skipped the first slot and went shopping for more Vibrams and sweet Maharishi snopants.

    I played Houses Of The Blooded in the second slot. This is a game I've been wanting to play for yonks and Rob winningly stepped up to run it. Sadly, I had to head home after only 3 hours of face-stabbing action, but I enjoyed the game. Thanks lads!

      The pink of Gary's suit didn't quite match that of his eyes.

      I was a bit slow to pick up on the rock-star operetta tone of Houses of the Blooded but the dice mechanic was great.

    Great team and very fun game, although the system we playtested was a bit too complex.

    Hoping to make the second slot, if that's OK: smoke me a kipper.

    I'd love to take a crack at Intrepid, if anyone who's played it could be persuaded to pitch it.

      Yeah, me too. I somehow managed to miss it during the several months John kept bringing and running it.

    Would anyone be interested in a game of Project: Dark, a stealth RPG from Will Hindmarch? It is still in beta but could be fun to play.

    • Peter Scott B.

      I will make sure I bring it on Saturday :-) This will be my first time running it but hopefully it will go OK.

    Are we playing an evening session this Saturday? The calendar for the event is 12-3pm and, with football on, I thought I would check we gave the room fr the whole day.

    Might be at Shrigley's for Indie breakfast but have way too much on. Sorry.

    Ah, sweet nostalgia. DitV was the first RPG I ever played. Hope you get a game of it.

    Is anyone bringing Dogs in the Vineyard? I've never played it.
