Chicago Game Designers Meetup

The purpose of this Meetup is to build the game design community in Chicago by bringing together game designers of every stripe (board, video, social, card, you name it!). During meetings we share ideas, playtest, brainstorm, work on current projects and start new ones, meet one another, and generally help connect game designers to the resources they need to create and improve their games.

We meet on the 2nd Wednesday of every month in your friendly, neighborhood English pub: the Red Lion in Lincoln Square (4749 N Rockwell... two blocks north of the Rockwell stop on the Brown line). The Red Lion is also accessible by the Lawrence bus (Lawrence and Rockwell) and there is plenty of free parking nearby.

    I might be a little late depending on the CTA.

    FYI -- Cat & Mouse Games is presenting a Demo of Ben Rosset's new game "Mars Needs Mechanics" ( the day before this Meetup. This is a good opportunity to see how a new developer has partnered with a game store to promote his product.

    Hope to see you there!

    We had a great meeting last month and I hope to keep things rolling with this one. In particular I'd like everyone to have something to say on the progress of their game (if you have one) and pick one obstacle or issue you've run up against for us to discuss.

    If you don't have a game to discuss or don't want to talk about your game, please come anyways. Hopefully we can spark a few new ideas for everyone to profit from!
