Our first Bay Area Tabletop Devs event was a success!

ToBeGosu has been expanding beyond our original mission to make esports accessible to all. Now we’re developing board gaming events and helping to build communities of designers.

Since May, TBG has been growing the Bay Area Tabletop Devs community, bringing together board game, card game, dice game and roleplaying game designers from all over the San Francisco Bay Area.

Thanks to the support of the wonderful team at The MADE (Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment), we were able to host our first #BATdev meetup!

We had 7 games being playtesting and used up almost every chair the MADE had! Including Bare Bones: the dice game that thinks its a card game (below)

One game that left a big impression on everyone, was from one our newest members. It’s a game that encourages healthy discussion about sexual well-being and experiences. To see total strangers feel comfortable sharing very personal stories was something incredible.
