PAGDIG Meeting August 14th, 7pm
Lucky Lab Public House, 7675 SW Capitol Hwy Portland OR

We’re going to try something a little different this time: a “Game Design Workshop”. We’ll break into groups, try out a couple simple boardgames and then talk about which game mechanics worked and what made them fun (or not). The groups can then try to make their own variants of the boardgames and have the other groups try them out. We’ll also talk about how what we learned could be applied to the design of video games.

If you have a fun boardgame with some interesting mechanics you’d like people to try out, you’re welcome to bring it. If people want to stick around afterwards and try them out, that’s cool. If we don’t have time, we can maybe have it as a candidate game for the next workshop. The important thing is to make sure the rules are fairly simple can be explained within 5 minutes, as we want to make sure people spend more time playing than figuring out rules.

This Lucky Lab has pizza and beer. Minors are okay until 10 too.

See ya there!
