Your 2-day focus group does not count as "experience*." You can mention (in the cover email or during the interview) that you participated in such an event, but you can't tell the name of the game or the company. Nobody will be much impressed by the fact, so nobody will be very curious about it. The fact that it lasted more than one day is the only curious thing about it.
