Hello everyone.

I'm intoducing "Outsourcing: The Card Game" where you start as an executive within a company tasked with cutting $1 million in overhead. To do this, you'll need to outsource your core jobs to other companies and often outside of the USA.

The game is a comical look at the business world of outsourcing, both in manufacturing and call centers. The humor stays in the PG-13 range, though the humor itself is likely to be more understood by adults There is 108 unique cards, played from a shared deck.

We have finished the early development, playtesting, and are having demo decks printed. I should have those in hand before too long.

I'm looking to locate a few playtesting groups to send demo games too. I'm hoping to get back about 20 unique surveys (short, 10 questions and open to any comments) back from any group I send the deck out to. Play testing locally has gone well, but I'm looking for feedback outside of people I know or have some connection to.

If anyone is interested, please let me know. I'll send more info to those interested. Look forward to hearing from anyone.

Thanks,

Ryan Andrews

!

I'm onboard. In fact, if you have product in hand, I have a gaming session scheduled in the Pittsburgh, PA (US) area on the 18th. PM me if you're ready to ship and I'll get you my address.

Interesting

Do you have a copy of the rules online?
I'll talk to my group about it, and having rules on hand to show them would be a plus.

Suggestion

I would suggest you add a custom URL at CardGameForge (go to your game settings and look for the "Game URL" option). Then you can link to your game like: www.cardgameforge.com/games/outsourcing_the_card_game or just www.cardgameforge.com/games/outsourcing.

Would make it easier and more memorable for others to link to your game.

Sounds great, I'd like to

Sounds great, I'd like to have a try only if I have spare time.
Refering to card game, my favorite is YU-Gi-Oh! It's a Janpannese game, it's rather popular all over the world.

If you're still accepting...

I'd be glad to help out. I generally have a once-a-week gaming group that varies between 2 and 6 people (including myself), so if that'll work for your needs, we'll gladly try a new game and help a fellow designer out.

Just let me know what you need from me/us and I'll make it happen!

send me more info as well. I

send me more info as well. I have a gaming group of 7-8 regular gamers, we've play and rotate through 6-8 games per week, from a selection of 30 favorites. This group is primarily pure gamers, I am the only developer in the group so honest feedback is possible.

Thanks for the interest

Hey guys. Thanks for the interest in playtesting Outsourcing: The Card Game.

I'm looking to get 15-20 surveys per deck that goes out. Do you guys think you could return that many? I've only got a limited supply of decks to send out. Please let me know.

Willing to play test

I've a regular gaming group - one night a week, 3 to 7 guys usually 5.
We are rules lawyers, and loop hole finders like no others.

I'm in Australia, so the postage will be a pain for you. If you have a PDF, I have card-stock I can print on.

Julien.

I hope one day soon you can return the favour.
