GGJ12 Play Parties

In collaboration with hard-working IGDA volunteer and veteran of the game industry Sheri Rubin, several play parties are organized around the world.

Play Parties?
Every year thousands of games get made during the Global Game Jam (GGJ) weekend, but it’s hard for anyone to get through them all and help highlight the hard work that went in over that great weekend. By having post-GGJ play parties we can help make sure as many games as possible get looked at, reviewed, and highlighted around the world.

"Read more" for upcoming Play Parties.

A play party is an event held after the GGJ is over, preferably in February but can be held as late as March. Hosts gather people together on one night to try and get people to play and review as many of the games made during the GGJ as possible, both digital and non-digital games. People who attend the play parties do not have to have participated in the Jam and can play any game created by the Jam.
