The August London Meetup will be on Sunday 18th August from 1pm to 8pm at the Jugged Hare pub, Victoria.
Following hot on the heels of the Nine Worlds Convention public playtesting will be the August meetup. All the holiday hours spent idling by the pool can now be used for game design. Don't leave home without your ideas notebook.
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 your game will be added to the provisional list.
We 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 on the meetup page 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.
We also have a guild at Boardgamegeek.com: www.boardgamegeek.com/guild/1398
