Playtest Zone

Note that the Playtest Zone will only be active on Saturday 24th of August.

On Saturday at Tabletop Scotland our attendees can try out new games by designers and publishers of all sizes.  The playtest zone is being hosted by Iain McAllister of The Giant Brain blog and Brainwaves Podcast.  Iain has been designing games for years and is the organiser of the Edinburgh Playtest Group.  Find out more via his website –

How does this work?

  • The Playtest Zone forms part of the Open Play area and will be sign posted by a Playtest Zone banner.
  • If you playtest a game then you will be given a form to fill in and hand back to the Playtest Zone host afterwards.
  • Your feedback will be collated along with all other players and given to the designer.

Why should I playtest a game?

Playtesting games helps designers refine their games.  This is an excellent way of giving feedback to the designers before they commit to any kind of publishing strategy.
