If anyone will be at GenCon this year, I'm play testing our new game Ninjato. Please let me know if you'd like to help out with a play. I'd be very happy to get feedback from a fellow BGDFer!

I'll be there. Tell me how to contact you and I'll make some time to playtest.

How does GenCon work for playtesting? Are there open tables where you can use and (hopefully) recruit people to play? Or do you have to reserve tables?

Well chances are you can find

Well chances are you can find a spot in designated board game area. They have tons of tables and often there are places to sit and play. They do hold events in these areas, but they also have open tables that go along with the board game library check-out.

So go there and chances are you will find a location. As for finding people to playtest your games, might be a good idea to attempt to find ppl prior to that time. Sure some people are willing to do a pick up game of something, but many are more interested in the new games and existing games on the market.

In the past I had attempted to do BGDF get togethers, in hopes to allow us all to meet and playtest some games, but that proved difficult.

Hmmm - I'd like to get some

Hmmm - I'd like to get some people scheduled for some playtesting ahead of time. It doesn't seem like people are clamoring to play a prototype on BGG.
Here's an idea: what is if I offer some pizza for playtesters that sign up - or does that seem lame? Can you even have food in the open play areas?

Tim ... If you're testing the same game I played at Protospiel, it might be more thematic to offer them Chinese takeout. ;-)

What about Saturday Morning at 10:30? I usually don't have anything going on at that time
