PHOTON - Play Testers needed for new Sci Fi card game

I've been developing a card game for over a year now, and it's really reached the point where I need to throw it out to the world for some serious play testing.

PHOTON is a tactical Sci-Fi card game for 2-4 players incorporating ship-to-ship combat, energy management and spaceship customisation. It's got pirates too!
It's 2-4 players, aimed at ages 10+ and should run at around 60-90 mins per game. It is my intention to develop a solo version of the game, but that's not on the priority list at the moment.

I already have some people on board, and although my long suffering friends and family have helped me bring it to this stage, I now need the brutal honesty of people who don't mind hurting my feelings. I'm talking about people who are willing to test the game to it's extremes and use every dirty trick available to find out if it is broken. Nice guys need not apply :lol:

There are currently 6 different groups play testing the game but another set of cards has become available and I'm struggling to find willing volunteers!. This is a self-funded project, so please only sign up for this if you feel you are able to give me some decent feedback. I'm not asking you to dedicate your lives to this (after all....that's my job!), but any less than a couple of games per month wouldn't really help me.

So....if you're interested please reply here or send a PM and I'll expand on the details.

All the play testing kits

All the play testing kits have now been claimed, but there are still slots available for anyone wanting to volunteer their services in proof reading the rulebook.

Again, I can't offer anything in return other than a free copy of the final game and your name appearing in the rulebook!

I'd be happy to proof read the rulebook for you. I have no experience but have proof read dissertations, theses and graded for college seniors as a grad student.
