This fall I’ve been organizing a study circle for people interested in game design here in Gothenburg. For posterity I kept a blog with reflections and photos from each meeting, you can read it here: http://speldesigncirkeln.tumblr.com/
If you live in Gothenburg and would be interested in participating in a similar thing in the future, please contact me! If you live in another city and wish this kind of thing existed there – what are you waiting for? It wasn’t hard at all to organize and I hope the blog can be a good source of ideas.
Getting so much into different board games from all times and places also got me really inspired, so right now I’m working on an app for playing a bunch of these.
