I checked out Snakes & Lattes Midtown location on Sunday for their Designer’s Night. Yes, it was Superbowl Sunday, but from the Twitter updates I’ve been reading, I had more fun than those who watched the game! Also, while I was there, I met some people whom I’ve already met before at other events! The game design community is looking to be a fairly close-knit one!
I played Vigilante, a hero team-building game. I enjoyed it quite a bit! The art was cool, and with so many heroes, villains, and equipment options, as well as different missions and objectives, it can be played quite over and over and never be repetitive!
Get more info and follow along with its progress here.
I also met my friend Sean, who was demonstrating his game Chess Nuts. This is a set of cards that helps balance out, speed up, and add random elements to a game of chess. Not necessarily for a serious competitive player, but definitely good for a casual player or anyone who thinks chess is boring. Chess Nuts will change your mind about that.
I also got to play a couple of games of our newest word game, which was good fun as well. That one continues to get positive reviews and good feedback. The phrase of the night from that one was “He-man want invisible goat”, which it turned out, was the first line of my Tinder profile!
Anyway, here are some upcoming things you might like to join us for:
Wednesday, February 13th: Dicey Business! We’ll be there after 7pm! And this time, we’re being joined by Joe Slack! He’s a full-time game designer with published games and everything! He’ll bring along something he’s currently working on, and of course we’ll have prototypes of our games, so come join us for some playtesting. We’d love to hear your opinion and feedback!
Thursday, February 21st: 3Brewers Heartland! We’re back at 3Brewers for their games night! They have games nights every Thursday, but on this Thursday, we’ll be bringing some of our favourite games to share.
We hope to see you soon!
