I've got a couple projects I've been working for a while and would like to share them with more people. I'd like to find other like minded people locally to discuss designs and play test, or just play games. What do you think?

I do a little board game design in Fredericton. Wouldn't mind connecting with more of a local design community.

Some games I've posted here:
Explore The Galaxy - 18 Card Microgame
FRESH Big Time - 80's Wall Street Microgame
SITA - Ancient India Theme Adventure Game

Hey Tim, yeah I kind of want to find some people who just want to discuss and share ideas. Meet up once a month and have coffee somewhere, do some play testing and offer input.

If you wanted a place to hang out I could suggest Unplugged Cafe.

That sounds like a plan, is there a good time for you? I've got an odd schedule.

Wow! Good timing. I've been planning to start a local game design group for awhile now and finally set something up. I came here to post about it and saw this thread.

Here is the facebook page for it: https://www.facebook.com/FrederictonTGD/

I was hoping to have an initial meeting before the end of February. I have access to a space at UNB.

If you're interested, pm me here or at FrederictonTGD@gmail.com and I will organize a poll to find a day/time when everyone who wants to meet is available.

Cheers,
Scott

How open is this?
If someone thought it sounded interesting but hasn't actually designed any games, would it be ok for them to drop in? (Maybe help with playtesting or offer feedback if it's helpful?)

100% open to anyone who is interested. Because it's brand new, I haven't really figured out all the details.

I've been designing games very casually for almost a decade now, but only recently gotten serious about creating actual prototypes that could be playtested with others. Since there didn't seem to be a local group that I could share them with, I decided to create one. I am also really looking forward to seeing what others are designing.

IMHO, playtesters and developers are an incredibly important part of the hobby, so you'd be more than welcome in this group whether you design or just want to help others design.

So I saw today that there was a meeting yesterday.
How did it go? Disappointed that I didn't see a notification earlier, but hope to attend in the future.

Hello, yeah it went pretty good, me and another guy showed up and we play tested a game I was working on. We're hoping to get more people so if you're interested then we'd definitely like to invite you down.
