Braving the weather and rail disruptions, the London Playtest UK group kicked off 2014 with a packed weekend playtesting session, featuring 24 diverse prototypes from 17 different game designers. These ranged from storytelling card designs to physical party games, with economic euro games and dexterity games also in the mix.

We welcomed 8 new attendees this month: Andrei. Andrew L, Ben M, David, Jim, Phil, Rick & Stuart.

Here is the Meetup webpage for the January Playtest UK session: www.meetup.com/Playtest/events/140933632/

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 375 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
