The April Meetup will be on Sunday 21st April from 1pm to 8pm.

If you've designed a game, bring it along and give it a play or just enjoy playing other people's prototypes in a friendly and constructive atmosphere.

If you would like to bring along a new design, add the details below in the comments section or contact Rob Harris (Organiser) and your game will be added to the list.

Deadline for pre-registering games is 11:59pm on Friday 19th April. Be sure to include the name of the game, the amount of players, the expected duration and a brief description. Please feel free to still bring extra prototypes on the day. They will be added to later playtesting rounds.
