IGDATC November 2015 - Multiplayer Extravaganza

About Multiplayer Extravaganza

Like all IGDA-TC events, this is free and open to the public. All ages welcome (under 18 with parent or guardian).

Come out to this monthly(ish) bar event to play games and share gaming experiences! The games we will play and discuss include a rotating collection of multiplayer favorites suggested by the community as well as locally made games that local creators bring to the events. It’s kind of like playing games on a couch with your friends, but bigger!

Fun Multiplayer Games for Everyone!

We have multiple screens setup where we can play great games together at the same time! Games like Elbow Room! This event is for everybody, even people who claim they “don’t play games.” Often times we are trying out new games, and everybody is equally terrible! It is good fun.

Locally Made Games

We want to encourage local game makers to show off their own current projects. Sign up for the “bring a game” ticket type, and we’ll contact you with details. This is a very friendly and helpful opportunity to do playtesting or just get general encouragement.

We’re interested in all kinds of games made by local developers. Your game can be a rough demo or a finished product, single player or multiplayer, a board game or a videogame, etc.

See you at Republic!

Join us at Republic (Seven Corners) for an awesome time! The festivities begin at 6:30pm on Thursday, November 19th and go late. Republic has a late night happy hour from 10 – midnight! The food is excellent, and they have a huge beer list.

All of our volunteers and event attendees are asked to please read our Safe Arcade Policy.

More info and further discussion can be found on the IGDA-TC google group.

We will try to show some spooky stuff to get you in the mood for Halloween. Games shown will include the creeptastic multiplayer game Crawl and Loren Schmidt’s Murder Simulator v.666 which is a 2d arena deathmatch game with antigravity instead of jumping and a huge variety of unique weapons. We will also be testing an alpha build of Arena Gods by Supertype. It’s kind of like a top down 4-player Nidhogg with flying swords.

Eventbrite - October 2014 - Board Game Multiplayer Extravaganza

A special Halloween Board Game Multiplayer Extravaganza at Light Grey Art Lab!

IGDA Twin Cities is proud to present another Multiplayer Extravaganza on Wednesday, October 29th.

This month we are teaming up with Light Grey Art Lab, and joining them for tabletop games in their gallery space. This means we won’t have the usual projectors and controllers, sorry if that disappoints you!

As usual, we’re coordinating with a number of local game developers and hope to have an awesome selection of local board games to play! Usually we’re interested in all kinds of games made by local developers, but this time around we won’t have as much space. Your board game can be a rough demo or a finished product. If you’d like to show your game, please select the “I’ll attend and want to bring a game I made!” ticket type when registering for the event.

The Multiplayer Extravaganza is an ongoing series of monthly events where our community gets together to play games and share gaming experiences.
