Kudos to CUDO

Last Saturday the Champaign-Urbana Design org (CUDO) Plays, also known as CUDO Plays held a playtesting event at Lincoln Square. There was a great turn out with about 20 different games being played.

What is CUDO Plays? Essentially CUDO Plays is a group of people who design board games and then test them out on one another and the public. They play and get feedback about their games so that they can improve them. It is open to the public and you’re encouraged to play the games and even design one yourself.
