“Sandbox” Alt Games Playtest | SF
Submitted by the Event Organizer
> EVENT UPDATE: This event is no longer taking place.
Sandbox is a monthly open mic, held every second Thursday, for playtesting live games and participatory experiences. Work presented is generally embodied play–unlike video games or board games, the experiences at Sandbox generally involve players moving around and exploring space and interacting with other players.
Each month, seasoned and amateur designers alike are welcome to share games with a playful audience; players of all sorts are invited to play, learn, critique, and get acquainted with the art of experience design.
Bring a game to share or enjoy playing others’ experiences.
The night starts with one or two quick warm-up games played together as a group. Afterward, the games for the night are introduced and you’ll break into groups to play your choice of games.
If you have a work-in-progress and want to try it out, even if it has nothing to do with the theme, you’re welcome to run it at Sandbox and gather feedback.
Join the Facebook group to receive updates about Sandbox events.
Sandbox will be wrapping up its 3.5 year run with one last playtest event. Design a game that anyone and everyone can play, and share it with them as a final sendoff. Themes are just a suggestion; games that don’t satisfy the month’s creative constraints are always welcome.
