Needs a date and time

Playtesting is an important part of the game development process. This workshop will focus on sharing techniques needed by both developers and prospective game testers and provide playtesting feedback. Developers wishing to playtest a game should notify the organizer with the type of game, number of players needed and feedback requested. Please note: Because this is an open event, any game to be considered for playtesting should be NDA free and ready for disclosure. This meetup will be a joint meetup with Social Games Chicago.
