Playtest Convention and After-Party

19 teams turned out for the Playtest Convention this season. The event was a great success, and all of the games got some good playtests in. Some folks also stuck around for the after-party at Arcadia, where the game-themed cocktails from katie.cocktails proved to be very popular.

If you want to see more from the Playtest Convention, check out this video from our friend, and CUDO Plays veterant Ben Moy!
