Elm City Games: Playtesting

  • Elm City Games 756 Chapel St, New Haven, CT (map)


Working in conjunction with Let's Make Games CT, every Monday night we have a bunch of designers and publishers in the house looking to get feedback on games that are still in development. Some of them will be amazing, some will be awful, all will be an interesting experience. So come hang out and see more of how games are made and have some influence on upcoming titles.

Free for members

$5 day pass for everyone else

Elm City Games is a board game cafe partnered with The Happiness Lab to bring New Haven the best gaming experience in a comfy location coupled with amazing drinks and food. We cater to game players of all types and experience levels; all you need to do is have fun!

If you’re an experienced gamer, check out our schedule of events, or just come by and get in on whatever happens to be hitting the table. If you’re new to all this, just come down and we’ll show you what we’re about.

We offer day passes to use the library and space for $5/person.

A month to month membership is $20 and comes with a $5 gift card to spend on drinks/food. We’re still in the process of finalizing some details of the additional perks members will get but so far we will be doing discounts when buying games, quicker library checkout, access to the vault games (out of print, hard to get, or super fancy games), and some other cool rewards we’re still adding to.
