Mechanics Workshop

We hope you guys had a great time learning about neat game mechanics as we had teaching them and maybe these will inspire your game designs!

Upcoming Events


Titan Games Playtest Night – Wednesday, Nov 4th

Titan Games @ 6:30pm
Ready to test your game, but not sure who you can ask to play? Do you want to be a part of the process and play board games in progress?

Come to a CUDO Plays informal playtest session! Teams can playtest their prototypes with people from the community. We will provide playtest feedback forms for playtesters to fill out!

Game design is an iterative process. Playtest early and playtest often!

Playtesting Convention – Saturday, Nov 7th

Lincoln Square Mall @ 1:00pm
Playtesting Convention_small-01Come to the CUDO Plays Playtest Convention for Season 3! This is a day to play the new prototypes and creations of the CUDO Plays teams and to get feedback from the Champaign-Urbana gaming community. Refreshments will be provided, and you will receive invaluable critique from people with years of experience.

Teams can bring their games in any condition that they are in and playtest with people from the community. We will provide playtest feedback forms for playtesters to fill out!

Prototyped_small-01We strongly recommend that teams have at least a paper prototype of their game ready before the playtest convention, so that there is plenty of time to both playtest and make revisions, but don’t let that deter you from just attending!

Please invite your friends, family, co-workers – everybody you know! The more playtesters there are, the more feedback you will get!

Teams! If you plan on attending the Playtesting Convention with your game, please sign up here so we can have space for you!
