24 intrepid playtesters came to the Jugged Hare pub in Victoria, London for the monthly Playtest meetup. Some brought their own game prototypes, while others came to enjoy playing the new designs. Here is a record of which games were playtested and by which members. Please feel free to add comments to each geeklist item, particularly from designers/playtesters with extra feedback.

Everyone is welcome to join the Playtest community of designers and playtesters, which now has over 150 members and has meetings in London and Cambridge (it is free to join and to attend meetups).

The meetups are organised into rounds of playtesting. This geeklist is to keep track of the playtests and to help credit playtesters accurately when games are published.

Join here: www.meetup.com/Playtest

The group's website/blog is here: www.playtest.co.uk

Our BGG guild can be found here: www.boardgamegeek.com/guild/1398

4th round : 'Wee Van Sank'

Designer: Behrooz Shahriari
Playtesters: Georg, Behrooz

I played a couple of games against Georg. The 'tournament rules' definitely help as a catchup mechanism but also make it more strategic, with more choices and also rewarding memory if you're that way inclined.

I think it's done but like all card games, I imagine it'll continue to evolve very slowly.
