I was going to have a longer post here, but I realized what I really wanted was to start a conversation. There's lots of guides for GMs in traditional games, what kind of topics do you think we'd need in one for running co-operative games?

Please back my patreon and support cooperative games!

Hey Everyone,

The IGDN is getting ready to do our Metatopia Scholarship, so we're starting the fundraising now. The goal is to get a diverse set of game designers a trip and access to Metatopia where they can get access to a focused playtest space, as well as having a current IGDN member with them to help them through what can be at times an intimidating process.

If we hit our 2000 goal we'll be able to get 4 people to the convention. If we hit 4000 we're going to send 8. Any help you can provide is appreciated, even if it isn't financial sharing this to people who can afford to support is greatly appreciated!

Game Chef dates are launched.

Really, if you are thinking about maybe designing something then Game Chef is a great way in!
Hi folks! This year's Game Chef got a bit delayed due to some turnover in the leadership. I have agreed to step in as interim Global Coordinator, and as such I am pleased to announce that this year's Game Chef will run from August 17 to 26.

Since we're getting a late start, I have an important favor to ask of all of you experienced chefs: help get the word out! Please share the info on Game Chef with any game communities you are part of.

I would also ESPECIALLY like to ask you to reach out PERSONALLY to one person who is interested in games but who has never designed a game before. (Bonus points if it's a person from a group that has been underrepresented in game design -- woman or nonbinary, person of color, etc). Game Chef is a great way to dip your toes into game design, and the community here is very supportive. But sometimes people need that personal nudge to believe that designing a game is something they can really do.

Thanks, and I look forward to seeing all of your great games next month!

If you're looking for ways to find games by marginalized people, this is something that you should sign up for and donate to if you have some money available.
Friends, I'm so happy to announce the launch of a new project to raise the profile of marginalized game designers and publishers, with the help of my amazing conspirators - +Kira Magrann, +Misha B, and +Kimberley Lam.

I hope you'll read about it here:

Should there be a meeting point? Like "this is the spot to meet if you don't have anything going?"
