I am very excited about this group and its potential. I am wondering though, is this group limited to just the design of digital games? My work is with analog game design, working with students to design board and card games as well as interactive fiction. I believe that a lot of the fundamentals of good game design spans format and so we are left with only the tools that vary in the creation of playable spaces. I am hoping that this is a space for exploring game design in any manifestation. Anyways, I really look forward to meeting everyone else who is making the meeting at ALA.
