A dedicated group of playtesters came to enjoy a lovely summer's afternoon playing games and getting feedback and comments on their designs at the July London meetup for Playtest UK. Prototypes included microgames, epic space miniatures battles, satirical political games, word games and many more. We welcomed 6 new attendees this month: Eran, Matt J, Matt R, Michel, Paul and Tom.

Here is the Meetup webpage for the July Playtest UK session: www.meetup.com/Playtest/events/115482652/

This geeklist is a record of which games were playtested and by which members. Please feel free to add items or comments to a geeklist item, particularly from designers/playtesters with extra feedback.

Everyone is welcome to join the Playtest UK community of designers and playtesters, which now has over 260 members and has meetings in London, Cambridge and Newcastle. (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
