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)
Notable guests were Rocket Lee getting in some final playtesting feedback for her successfully Kickstarted game Bloc by Bloc
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.
Our next #BATdevs meet up will be this month, on August 18th, 7:00pm @ The MADE.
Feel free to bring a game, or just come to play the games!
Entry is free, however the MADE respectfully requests a $5 donation to help keep their doors open.
Full details can be found here.
Did you bring a game that isn’t linked above? Let us know and we will add it to the list.
