What we're about

http://photos4.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/9/8/a/a/event_204159082.jpeg

Do you love tabletop gaming in any or all of its forms—strategy, casual, roleplaying, dice, cards, miniatures—but have ideas of your own you'd like to explore and create?

Looking for like-minded game creators for idea exchange, collaboration, resource pooling, playtesting and feedback?

Whether you make games for your own enjoyment or with an aim toward publication; whether you're an experienced designer with multiple prototypes or someone with no experience beyond a good idea; whether you want to make a party-style card game or an epic, 2000-piece strategy game ... the Stumptown Gamecrafters' Guild is the place for you.

See our Pages for more information about the group and game crafting resources.

Monday Night Gametable

Guardian Games

Welcome to our weekly open session, where we encourage everyone to stop in to play prototypes and talk about what they're working on. If you have a game that you'd like to playtest, feel free to bring it in—our members will be happy to run it through its paces and offer detailed feedback. While the focus of the event is playtesting, feel free to bring anything from a concept to outline to proof-of-concept to prototype to get feedback. Be sure to RSVP if you're planning on attending the event since people tend to be more likely to attend if someone else has already RSVP.
