CUBED Open Playtest at Gopher Mafia Games

It was a busy Sunday at Gopher Mafia, but CUBED still managed to grab some tables for playtesting, which was good because several local designers and CUDO Plays competitors showed up with their prototypes, including some new ones that had never been played before!

CUDO Plays December Game Night: Playtesting!

Another excellent evening of playtesting at the Hyatt. Some games have changed quite dramatically since the Playtest Convention!

CUBED Focused Playtest Sessions

Andrew Stengele of CUBED

The CUBED focused playtest sessions for CUDO Plays competitors are in full swing. These are not public events, but times where CUBED members gather to play a specific game from this season of CUDO Plays and give feedback to that team. Signup slots for focused playtests are now filled, but if you’re a competitor that would love to get your game played by CUBED, reach out to them directly through facebook and they can make it happen!


Upcoming Events

CUDO Plays is hoping to set up a playtest event or two over the holidays. These plans haven’t firmed up yet, but stay tuned for more information!

CUDO Plays Recommends

This week CUDO Plays recommends Tortuga 1667.

Tortuga box

This is a team-based pirate game. Players try to get the most treasure for their own team by grabbing chests from the cargo ship, and hoarded treasure from the island. The twist is that you don’t know what team the other players are on. Tread carefully, you’ll need the help of your enemies to secure treasure, but you can never completely trust anyone.
