LA Board Game Jam is hosting the Los Angeles UnPub Mini! UnPub is a growing community of game designers, publishers, players, retailers and artists working towards the creation of new and unique table top games that will keep people entertained for generations to come!

Game Designers come join us to demo your latest creations, network with other creative folks, and gain instant feedback from players.

Game Players check out and play new games before anyone else, meet the designers, provide valuable feedback, and have fun.

The event is free for both game designers and players! So, come out and join us to discover the next awesome game before anyone else.


The LA Board Game Jam UnPub Mini will take place on Saturday, June 17th from 12:30 PM to 8:00 PM . Game Designers must check in 15-30 minutes before their scheduled time slot.  Board game players/playtesters can come at any time.
