As part of the revamp of Playtest UK, we are looking to update our logo will a more professional looking version.

Robb Smigielski has very kindly created a treatment of various possibilities and it would be great to get the feedback of of members to make sure that we have retained the right feel and image.

If you are interested, please give your feedback by completing our online questionnaire, which can be found here: https://goo.gl/forms/MbZsuIZzYag52YWz1

Playtest UK @ Dragonmeet 2017

Saturday 2nd December 2017

Playtest UK will be returning to Dragonmeet for the 8th year to run the Playtest Zone. Check out the www.dragonmeet.co.uk website for more details.
This year Dragonmeet will double in size and take over both floors at the Novotel Hammersmith, London W6 8DR. We will be playtesting from 10am until 6pm. 

This will be a public playtesting event for card games, board games, digital game prototypes. If you are a games designer, this is a perfect opportunity to play your game with the great gaming public and receive more feedback in a day than you usually would in a month.

There will be a prize draw for playtesters that sit down to play a prototype.

If you would like to bring along a game design to be playtested please RSVP to the meetup page:

If you are interested in volunteering to help out at the Playtest Zone, you can register here for a free ticket: https://goo.gl/forms/3zuqQQCL6KFmIRcf1

Adult Tickets can be bought from the website for about £10 each (or they are £12 on the door).
Under 16's  tickets are free with an adult.
Transport: I would advise against driving as parking in this area of London is very expensive, but the venue is a short walk from Hammersmith and Baron's Court rail & tube stations, which are on the District & Piccadilly lines.
