Welcome to KCGameDesigners.com

The "Kansas City Game Designers" is a group of game designers, playtesters, and general game enthusiasts from the greater Kansas City area who meet together regularly to playtest non-electronic game prototypes (board games, card games, etc.) and to discuss various topics in game design.

Meeting info (Updated for Covid-19):

  • We meet on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month from 6:30pm-9pm central time on the 2nd floor at Lenexa Public Market in Lenexa, KS. If we need to cancel in-person meetings for safety reasons, we will hold a virtual playtest session on our Official KCGD Discord Server

  • Meetings are free to attend and everyone, including new participants, are welcome to help playtest

  • To have your game playtested, become an official member of our group by doing the following:

    • Attend 2 meetings where you playtest other people's games

    • After your 2nd meeting, ask to be part of our private communication group

    • Members may submit requests through the private group to add their game design to the schedule
