Meetup Sunday 20th May

The May Meetup will be on Sunday 20th May from 1pm to 7pm.

The following week we will be running the Playtest Zone at the UK Games Expo 2012 in Birmingham, so now is the time to give your games some last minute tweaks before they may be playtested by the gaming public.
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. The pub has a great range of food and drink, and the 'Spying Room' has fantastic views across the Thames.

If you would like to bring along a new design, contact Rob Harris (Organiser) and we will add your game to the list.

The venue will be the Spying Room at the Morpeth Arms, Pimlico, London. Here is a map with directions of the short walk from Pimlico tube station to the pub.

April Meetup Debrief

April's Playtest meetup was at our new venue, the Morpeth Arms and many remarked on the good quality of the food and drink, as well as the overall friendly atmosphere.

9 game prototypes were played, with several new to the table. We also happily welcomed some new playtesters this month, mostly from our new Meetup group, and many of them brought their own game designs. Themes ranged from time travel to fantasy realms, via 2-player abstracts and mainstream cross-over games. 

Many thanks to Lawrence, Rob, Katarina, Gavin, Tak, Rosie, Paul, Chris, Mark, Gerry, Maz, Ronnie and Matt for playtesting and bringing their games.

Already looking forward to the next meetup on Sunday 20th May.
