Weekly Playtesting for Your Game at Emerald Tavern
Here is weekly event to focus on PLAYTESTING your games. No presentations... Just games. 1. No Cover Charge!!! :) 2. No Participant Limit - we've reserved several big tables. Sunday afternoon is usually pretty slow, so we've never had space issues. Anyone who wants to show up, come on down, bring your friends and plan to stay a while (there are a lot of good food places in the shopping center). 3. Priority for New or Changed Games - we want to reward people for coming for the first time and for working on their games. 4. Playtesters Welcome - you don't need to have a game for us to test or even be interested in making a game. We're always happy to have more players. That is all- Remember, we are here to support your designs and help you bring your game to market. Let's make something great together! Game On!
