who is PLAYTESTNW?

Based out of Seattle, playtestNW is a cabal of designers with the sole mission of bringing enjoyment through tabletop games to the masses. Our playtestNW events wouldn't be the same without the generous help of the eager gamers and game designers who volunteer their time for event hosting and community outreach.

And, more importantly, playtestNW is all of you! We rely on the time and thoughtful feedback of playtesters in the Pacific Northwest. Please join us at one of our events and we'll gladly repay you with a raffle ticket. At the first event of every month, we'll do a drawing and each playtester will have a chance to win fabulous prizes. The more you test, the greater the chances that you'll win!
