Earlier this year, I asked what the group should be doing more of. Based on our September events, it looks like the answer is: lots!
We’re halfway through the month we’ve had plenty of meet-ups, including special game nights devoted to Settlers of Catan and chess. There’s even momentum building up for gatherings built around Dungeons & Dragons and the Pathfinder roleplaying games.
The Hungry Gamer deserves a lot of credit for this activity. They’ve been proactive about organizing a variety of game nights, and their efforts have paid off. Hopefully this partnership will continue to benefit both local gamers and their mission of selling delicious sandwiches.
More September Fun
We’ve also got our monthly library meet-up chugging along, and we did our first Playtest Prototypes meet-up at the end of August. This playtest was a big help to me and another local designer, and it looks like there’s interest in doing more.
We’ve also gotten a opportunity to playtest an upcoming game from two of the hobby’s hottest designers. We’ll be focusing on this game during our September playtest session and running some special sessions over the next few weeks.
Finally, I’m looking into the Envoy program. This marketing program partners with publishers, retailers, and game groups to set up game demonstrations. If the program is as good as it looks, then it could be a fun way to explore new games from some of the medium-sized publishers in the hobby.
Overall, September is looking like a great month. Let’s keep the fun rolling throughout the fall!
