Midweek Playtest Dublin #9
December 7 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Hello again tabletop game designers and players! This will probably be our last mid-week meet up before the holidays, so bring whatever you’ve got down!
We’ll be meeting up in the Library Bar; if you have never been before, it is upstairs in the Central Hotel. Just ask for the bar at the front desk and they will point you in the right direction.
Also, the Cardboard Edison Competition starts up again in January, so this meet up is a great place to start looking for inspiration, help, feedback, and encouragement for getting in a submission next year!
The Library Bar is located in the Central Hotel on Exchequer Street, Dublin 2.
If you are attending as a playtester, you will be invited to play prototype tabletop games and offer some thoughts afterwards. You should be honest but fair in your critique of a game. Recognise that some things will be wonky and unbalanced and that is fine in the early stages of development. Remember that you are not playing these games to win, but to help develop the game ideas. If you’re not sure what to focus your feedback on, ask the designer what they want to talk about. Most of all: have fun playing the games!
If you’re a designer, please bring down any of your designs and be open to receive new ideas and make changes on the fly. We are requesting that playtests of a single game be kept to no more than about an hour long, you should find that you don’t need to play your game to completion to get useful feedback. This also means we can play as many games as possible during the event.
