As the nights draw in, it's time to put away the sunhat for another year and get back to staying indoors working feverishly on the latest prototype as the rain lashes down outside. For designers seeking a publisher, there was just over a month to perfect your game before meetings at Essen Spiel in October.

The September London meetup for Playtest UK featured prototypes ranging from cooperative card games to party games and wooden dexterity games to storytelling apps. We welcomed 8 new attendees this month: Alunga, Colin, Dionne, Jack, Jonathan, Pavel, Pierre-Jean, Terry.

Here is the Meetup webpage for the September Playtest UK session: www.meetup.com/Playtest/events/115482832/

This geeklist is a record of which games were playtested and by which members. Please feel free to add items or comments to a geeklist item, particularly from designers/playtesters with extra feedback.

Everyone is welcome to join the Playtest UK community of designers and playtesters, which now has over 300 members and has meetings in London, Cambridge and Newcastle. (It is free to join and to attend meetups).

The meetups are organised into rounds of playtesting. This geeklist is to keep track of the playtests and to help credit playtesters accurately when games are published.

Join here: www.meetup.com/Playtest

The group's website/blog is here: www.playtest.co.uk
