Do you have an idea in your head for the next big CCG? A board game cooler than Carcassonne? A wargame that will shake the pillars of heaven? Come to our Designers' Workshop on May 31 at 11am and chat to other folks with similar interests and passion for game design. Hosted by the super-cool Dr Richard Vickery and myself, you'll get the chance to play prototypes, get feedback on your designs and hear about the potential for game publishing in Australia. Contact me for more details or to RSVP and put your ideas out there, no matter your experience!

This is the second event of its type that we have held and given the success of the first, we're turning it into a regular thing. The last Saturday every Feb, May, August and November will see a meeting held. Cost is $10 for these events, which include catering. Playtesters without designs of their own are most welcome also. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions regarding the event.

Hida Mann - how widely have you publicized this?

I mentioned it in the nerd cave facebook group.

I think there is an AU game designer facebook group too?

any other ideas?

I used the FB designers Group and here - I wasn't going to post in other stores' pages, that seems rude.

Apparently it was considered a bit rude - sorry about that. Totally unintentional as I was just reaching out to the designer folk I met there recently.

But all was handled quite amicably.

I'm in for the next one. Saturday August 30, 10.30am

Jaime - would be good to put this on your store's calendar - easier to check than here I think
