Welcome to the Kansas City Game Designers!
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.
In-person playtest sessions are 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.
Lenexa Public Market - 8750 Primrose Ln, Lenexa, KS, 66219
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
At your 2nd meeting, ask to be a member
Members may submit requests through the private group to add their game design to the schedule
Game Design Discussion Meetings:
Online game design discussions are the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of the month from 7:00pm to 9:00pm central time.
Talks will be held on the Official KCGD Discord Server.
Swing by to discuss game design problems, brainstorm ideas, or just talk about game design.
If you want to host a discussion topic, let us know on our discord server.
Business meetings are held on the 5th Tuesday of a month whenever they occur throughout the year.
They'll probably happen on discord, but locations may vary.
Topics of discussion may include event planning, officer elections, charter updates, and general KCGD community engagement.
To add an agenda item to an upcoming business meeting, email KCGameDesigners@gmail.com and we'll bring it up.
Meetings are open to the public, but only members may vote.
We keep records of which games we playtest at our meetings along with the designer(s) and playtester(s)
