The March Meetup will be on Sunday 17th March from 1pm to 8pm at the Jugged Hare pub, Victoria.
It is almost a year since Playtest joined the meetup website and our membership has now grown to over 150 designers, publishers and playtesters.
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. Everyone is welcome.
If you would like to bring along a new design, contact Rob Harris (Organiser) and we will add your game to the list.
As over twenty prototypes are presented at each meetup, we are now have pre-registration to make the sessions run more smoothly. Designers are encouraged to pre-register their games to be playtested before the meetup by leaving a message at the meetup page below or contacting Rob Harris (Organiser).
You are still welcome to bring along other designs on the day, but time slots will first of all be allocated to pre-registered games.
