Needs a location
This is an ONLINE event, starting 6pm!
We will coordinate our digital testing using Discord: please join the Vancouver Playtest Group on Discord using this link: https://discord.gg/jgRyjw
Once you've joined the Discord group, look for the ONLINE-TESTING channel (text) where we will coordinate our testing groups and share links to our digital games. Please also join the ONLINE-TESTING voice channel where we can talk to help coordination.
Depending on numbers, we can divide into groups and establish separate text and voice channels for each digital game we are testing so things don't get confusing. If you plan to attend, please RSVP and add a comment to indicate whether you have a prototype ready to test.
I anticipate we will mainly use Tabletop Simulator. Here is a guide to this platform which may be useful: https://tinyurl.com/qnuzl8x
We may also use other platforms such as Tabletopia, and potentially video conferencing like Skype (e.g. for simple roll & write prototypes where each tester could print their own sheet and no shared components are needed).
It may take us all a little time to figure out how best to test together online, but please be patient and I'm sure we'll get there. As always, please keep feedback respectful and constructive so we can help one another to improve our designs.
Thanks and any questions let me know!
