Hey everyone, finally got around to polishing my board-game a bit over the last few weeks (a bit of free time with exams over now). If anyone checked my post introducing myself, you may be aware of my game already. Since then it has been reworked quite a bit, however the people i usually test this with agree that even though its quite different from before it is still pretty fun. So on that note i would like to ask others to participate in the play testing of this game. If you want to give it a go drop me a message and i will send the rules and the like. If you want to get a better idea of what it is kind of like, check my introduction post (where i put my original rules and discussed it a bit), i hope any who want to try it enjoy it as much as i have.
Cheers!

BTW here is the old one

Here are the old rules if anyone would have trouble finding them, it looks a bit messy but it has been improved quite a bit since then.

playtesting

Hi Pinchey

I am unclear abut I can be of help. Are you ready to begin playtesting? Or are you playtesting the rulebook only?

I found a "road map" that I love about boardgame design. The book is called "The Kolbold guide to Boardgame Design" and i recommend it. It shows a stair step approach to playtesting. First with frinds and family, then people you know, then strangers. After the game is finished then you have the "trial by Rulebook".

If you dont want to get the book, I have a copy of the roadmap on my website... check it out. Scroll down to the post entry January 2013

I hope this helps.

play testing

Thanks for that
I think i am at the point to have others play test this, because so far i have had a few people i know play test this with me and while they are great people and all that (we have done a lot of play testing together, believe me) i think it would be best to have other people experienced in this sort of thing give some insight and their thoughts :)
Cheers
