London Meetup Sunday 17th February


The February Meetup will be on Sunday 17th February from 1pm to 8pm at the Jugged Hare pub, Victoria.

After a romantic week with your loved ones, it is time to feed your passion for playtesting. With Lawrence's 'Chocolate Factory' game, all we need is a card game about a florist shop and Cupid's dexterity archery game.

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.

We also have a guild at Boardgamegeek.com: www.boardgamegeek.com/guild/1398
