Hello all!

I'm a loooong-time forum lurker here, first time poster. I saw several questions floating around about my project, Coalition Game Studios, and I figured I should probably answer some of them.

Coalition Game Studios is a web group that offers tabletop game development and quality assurance services to independent designers and small studios. Our services start from a foundation of blind playtesting, and can branch out to include 1000+ word critical evaluation reports, focus group survey spreadsheets, rules copy editing, and/or collaborative design consulting (where we take a more active role in the creative process and work alongside you to help guide your game to its final iteration). We also offer custom services, like long-form contract development and more, to make sure the little guy has all the same tools available as a larger publisher.

We've also sponsored and contributed to the Quantic Foundry's study on board game motivations, which you can find at We're currently running a pilot study to determine if we can integrate our testers' feedback surveys with their psychographic profiles (and the overall aggregate of the QF project data) to provide any meaningful projections.

You can find out more about us at our website,, or just PM or email me directly at I'm always glad to answer questions!

Feedback from other forum communities has helped out tons in helping us establish the scope of our services. My goal is to provide a service that's fair to both my consultants and to my clients, and that can help everyone make better games. If you have any ideas, concerns, or recommendations, I'd love to hear them.

Looking forward to playing your games,

Michael Mihealsick

Thanks for posting here

Thanks for posting here Michael! I know I've been in touch with you about my game OverRealm and I look forward to using your service somewhere down the line. Some members here have received some PnP's that I mailed them, so if this preliminary blind playtesting goes well, I know what's next :)
