Description: 

Help local game designers test their new games! Come join Break My Game at Labyrinth Games and Puzzles for a full day of free gaming! The games we will play are games that are still under development. You will get to be one of the first ones to try them out! Never play tested before? Never fear! Play testing is easy. We will have the designers of the games on hand to teach you how to play each game. At the end of playing, you can give feedback to the designers to help make their game better. Tell them what you liked, didn't like, and even offer suggestions on how to make the game better. You need no experience to be a play tester, just a desire to play games and willingness to give feedback.

This is a free event for all ages, and no RSVP is necessary. Just come and play! New games will be starting regularly, and there are usually many designers looking for help.
