  • @quintond - I noticed that you say the event is going to be free? Do we have to sign anything to join or register?
  • @Boogaloos - you might have to sign an NDA for Derivco (who are hosting us) but other than that, nothing else. The NDA is to protect Derivco and make sure you don't wander around their offices taking pictures of their whiteboards and stuff.
  • @quintond - Thanks. Please keep me updated.
  • @quintond looks good to me. There is another venue in our other building that is being renovated that we can use. We should be able to skip the NDA with this building, I am busy confirming.

    I can also log another request to FB to cover catering costs.

    Awesome sauce ... thanks.

    Worth a shot for catering ... if not we can make another plan. Thanks.

  • Can we get a head count for those that are attending this meetup?

    Does anyone want to show a game, get a game tested, or talk about something in particular?
  • Me, I'll be there, will show what game(s) I'm currently working on, as a beginner, so you guys (the pros- in terms of having released a game, if I may say) could kindly provide your input/critic/anything.

    Sounds good ... feel free to set up a station and showcase your game. You don't really need to RSVP, I just wanted to check numbers and see if there was still interest in this.

    I will bring some Riders of Asgard and The Colony 2174 with ... just for kicks and maybe some healthy competition.
  • fantastic, how about some Settlers of Catan to lol

  • Hey @everyone, Derivco venue will not be available. @ErrorNaik will be out of country. We have to make alternative arrangements or postpone to next month.
  • Can we get an alternative venue on such short notice?
  • @everyone, I've sent out a request to Immedia. No promises. If anyone else have any other suggestions, please let us know. I will keep you posted. Will give this a week, within this week nothing happens, we will have to postpone, to maybe the following week or the next.
