Playtest Story Games

NEW VENUE! We're trying out Phoenix Comics & Games! Come check it out.

Want to playtest a story game? This is the night for you (the third Tuesday of each month to be exact). Bring a game you want to playtest or just bring yourself to play other people's games.

The cardinal rule is that if you bring a game, do your best to make sure it's something you'll be happy to sit down and play. The goal is to playtest, not redesign games on the fly. For answers to other exciting questions like "how do I know my game is ready?" and "will my game get played?" see the playtesting discussion thread.

Warning: Games you playtest may have unforeseen yet fatal, fun-crushing flaws. Hopefully they'll be awesome, but heck, it's playtesting. Satisfaction not guaranteed.

    Hey,

    Play testing a new game sounds like fun. I'm a little concerned that there are only four others RSVPing. Do usually more people participate than RSVP?

      Jim,

      Thanks for your comment, and welcome to the group! In answer to your question, RSVPs are only a loose indicator of participation. Whatever number of people show up, though, we're gonna have a great time!

      Overall, I encourage you NOT to be concerned with the number of attendees. Like, at all. One of the things we do really well at SGS is make sure that, no matter how many people show, we have a game for everyone.

      Most of the games we play (playtests included) are for 2-6 players, which means that everyone has a similar individual gaming experience, whether the whole group is 4 people, or 40.

      If you have any more questions, please feel free to message me, or hit up our FAQ in the 'Everything Else' section of the SGS message boards.

      Thanks again for your input, and I look forward to meeting you tomorrow night!
