GenCon Playtesters Needed

I've decided that Titans of Industry is just not yet ready. At this point, all I'm doing is making tweaks, but these tweaks have had large consequences. Until I can get the game to stabilize, I am no longer showing it to publishers.

The problem I have now is that I will no longer be spending GenCon meeting with publishers. Therefore, I've decided to spend it playtesting my prototypes as much as possible. This is where you come in.

If you are attending GenCon this year and would like to try out one of my games, send me an e-mail at playtest@gamedesignerwannabe.com.

At this time, I do not know exactly when/where at the convention I'll be holding these playtests. That will be up to whoever volunteers to playtest. I will schedule the tests around your schedules. So, if you are at all interested in trying out a GDW game, please send that e-mail to: playtest@gamedesignerwannabe.com.

  1. Do you still plan to post the rules online?

  2. Just curious with why you are no longer meeting with publishers at GenCon? Just couldn't get scheduled or strategically decide to hold off meetings and thoughts?

  3. I will post the rules later this week. I have a playtest Thursday with some changes and want to see what they do before posting the rulebook.

    I decided not to meet with publishers for strategic reasons. I had thought the game would be ready but the last three playtests have gone awry. Every tiny change I've made has had unintended effects. I no longer feel that the game is ready.
