Next Meetup

London Playtest weeknight meetup (4th Mondays)
Have fun playing other people's prototypes, and maybe testing your own, in a friendly and constructive atmosphere. We usually have one or two people by 5:45 and we aim to have enough people for a first game at 6:15. Please add details of your game in the comments section below (game length, #players wanted, game name/description). Please write details by 11pm on Sunday if you can. Letting us know when you plan to arrive/leave is also helpful. Though there won't be any predetermined 'slot' length (so games of any length can be played), I'm going to try to organise the 'playlist' in the fairest way I can. Not everyone will get to play a game each time they come. I'll try and make things work over the long run. Preference given to folk previously passed over, as well as newbies. The formula itself will be playtested and tweaks made along the way. (Please note that as a condition of our use of the Jugged Hare, only food and drink bought at the pub can be consumed on the premises.) Game list: You can follow the group's blog at We also have a guild page on BGG:

What we're about

We are a friendly group of board/card game designers and playtesters set up in London in 2010. We meet to play games and each other's design prototypes.

Everyone is welcome to join us and bring along their own designs or settle down to play and give their opinion. Ever designed a game and wanted to see how it plays? Enjoy playing games and being creative? Do you know what makes a game fun? Don't leave your game ideas sitting on the shelf gathering dust; show them off at the next Playtest meetup and get feedback direct from the players. We look forward to welcoming you at the next meetup!

We have regular playtesting meetups across the country in London, Cambridge, Newcastle, Brighton, Cardiff, Leeds, Enfield, Bath, Norwich, Edinburgh, Sheffield, Birmingham, Bristol, Cornwall, Oxford, Dundee, Oxford, Southampton and SE London.

We host public playtesting at UK Games Expo, Dragonmeet, Essen, London Toy Fair and a few other events during the year. We also run game jams and designer/publisher speed dating events throughout the year.

Please see our listings for details of dates and times. There is a monthly group newsletter.
