Playtest @ UK Games Expo Saturday 25th- Sunday 26th May 2013
- Rob HarrisUnited Kingdom
This was the third Playtest@UK Games Expo event and it continues to go from strength to strength, with more prototypes and playtesters each year. The Expo moved to a bigger venue for 2013 and the Playtest Zone found a shiny new home in the Arden Suite.
This year, we had ten playtesting tables in continuous use throughout the weekend. Several designers had pre-booked a time slot, but others took advantage of the drop-in facility and were allocated a table when they turned up with their design. There was a wide variety of prototypes, from complex euro designs to short card games for children

This geeklist is a record of some of the games that were playtested. The prototypes listed are mostly the ones pre-booked in or the ones brought by Playtest members. There are definitely some missing from this list, so please feel free to add comments or games. It will be especially pleasing to get extra feedback from designers/playtesters.
