Designer & Playtester Feedback Forms updated

The feedback forms that are provided for free download have always been a popular part of the website, so I thought it was time they were updated in line with comments I have received from designers and playtesters alike.

Please find the links to the downloads below. (I have also shifted them from Google docs, which has caused some users problems in the past.)

The forms are free to download and are licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-Non-Commercial-NoDerivs 3.0 Unported

The latest versions are as follows:

Designers Feedback Form version 3.4
Playtesters Feedback Form version 3.3

The link to the download folder is here.

If you have any questions about the forms or how to use them, please feel free to leave a comment.

London Meetup Sunday 16th December

The December Meetup will be on Sunday 16th December from 1pm to 7pm at the Jugged Hare pub, Victoria.

Christmas is traditionally a time for families to play a board game after filling up on turkey. Here's hoping that we can design the games that will relegate Monopoly to a dusty forgotten shelf.

If you've designed a game, bring it along and give it a play or just enjoy playing other people's prototypes in a friendly and constructive atmosphere. Everyone is welcome.

If you would like to bring along a new design, contact Rob Harris (Organiser) and we will add your game to the list.

More details:

We also have a guild at
