Founded in 2015, the ‘Spellenmaakgilde’ is a game makers guild that facilitates playtesting by tabletop game designers in the northern part of the Netherlands. It is open for anyone interested. Events are free, we just ask visitors to bring something to eat and/ or drink. Our location was for a ling time facilitated by an Indie Game Development hub Indietopia (many thanks!) and currently we reside at the Forum Groningen, the new cultural hub of the city.
We have a testing night each first Friday of the month in Groningen and in other cities. If you are interested in participating, check out our website: spellenmaakgilde.net. And if you are interested in learning more about the tabletop industry, of Europe and the Netherlands, check out these interviews with professionals at the website.
On the twitter account of the Spellenmaakgilde I share game design resources and tabletop news. On the Facebook account we share upcoming events. Designers are very welcome to our Discord Community where we chat, share tips and tricks and coordinate initiatives.
