I am at the point now where I need to send my game off to playtesters where I won't be able to supervise so to speak. Does anyone use a post playtest questionnaire, or how to you gather information on how the game went?

Best,

I found this...

But I'm sure you could probably find more... Just Google something like:

board game blind playtest questionnaire

That's how I got the above link. It's not the greatest - I would search some more... I'm sure you'll find something that works for you.

He talks about UNPUB so I figured I'd link the UNPUB Feedback form too:

Someone posted this awhile

Someone posted this awhile back, and I saved it...

Some good questions to ask of play testers as a start (you could ask more or fewer questions, but these will get you started to find what needs work);

-How would you rate the quality of your overall experience (1-5)?

-How long did it take you to set up?
-How long did your games last on average?
-How many times did you play?
-How does it compare to similar games you have played?
--How is it similar?
--How is it different?

-Were the Rules well organized?

-On a scale of 1-5 how clear were the rules for;
--Setup
--Turn Sequence
--Player Actions
--Win/Lose Conditions
--Overall
-Was anything crucial missing from the rules?
-Did any part of the rules feel extraneous?

-Were there any areas of the game that stood out as exciting/engaging/interesting (what did you like about it)?
-Were there any areas of the game that stood out as boring/unengaging/uninteresting (what did you dislike about it?)

-Did you have to adopt any house rules? If yes, why and for what?

thanks!

This post was helpful, and a good resource for aid in building a (blind) playtest questionnaire.

A couple of questions I've added to my own questionnaire:

- Tell me a little about yourself (education, hobbies, career, goals).

- How experienced are you with card games or board games?

Thanks again!
