playtestNW runs numerous playtesting events all across the Greater Seattle area. We visit game stores, coffeehouses, and gamer pubs to bring you new games and eager game designers looking for YOU to help them make their games better.

We test all sorts of new games – you may play a Eurogame at one event and three light card games at another. No two events are ever the same, but at every event you can expect some confusion, some "Ah-ha!" moments, some laughs, and some serious contemplation of game mechanics. With your help we're the game designers are hoping to find out what's good and what's broken.

So, if you like learning new games that no one has ever heard of and you like getting your fingers into the fiddly-bits to see what happens when you adjust this rule or change that mechanic, then you'll have a good time at a playtestNW event.
