Welcome to the Game Makers Guild website!


The Game Makers Guild is New England’s largest group of indie board game designers. We meet 2-3 times per month in the Boston area to playtest each others’ games, as well as discuss the various aspects of bringing a game to life! Feel free to poke around our site and check us out. If you’re interesting in becoming a member, just come to one of our meetings.
