Meeple Syrup Shop Talk

The folks from Meeple Syrup will have a table at ProtoTO where they will be available to work through any challenges designers might be facing with their prototypes.

The conversations will be live streamed (with consent) so others can learn from the process.

Meeple Syrup is a live video cast featuring hosts Sen-Foong Lim, Erica Hayes-Bouyouris and Jessey Wright. Episodes air live on Facebook every Wednesday evening at 9 pm ET.

They also coordinate the Facebook group Meeple Syrup Shop Talk, a forum for designers to discuss their design challenges, with input from the hosts.
