Each year at Tabletop Scotland we have a Playtest Zone aimed at giving game designers the opportunity to bring their in-progress games to the convention so that they can get valuable feedback from our attendees.

This year we will have six tables available for designers to book slots on over the Saturday and Sunday. Playtest slots can either be 90 minutes or 3 hours, and are booked on a first come, first served basis.

To be part of our Playtest Zone you need to complete the form by clicking on the button below.

Playtest Designers still need to buy a convention ticket and we also ask that those booking a 3 hour or multiple 90 minute slots donate to our charity partner via the JustGiving link on that page.

Why Playtest Games?

As a designer…

Getting feedback on your game as you iterate on the design is very important, moreso when it’s from complete strangers at a convention like Tabletop Scotland. Players will notice things about your game that you and your regular gaming group may never notice.

As a player…

Testing out games before they are published gives you the opportunity to understand more about what goes into making a game, plus it is a lot of fun!
