Playtest Zone

playtest zone

On the Saturday of Tabletop Scotland, attendees can playtest games by designers and publishers of all sizes. 

The playtest zone is hosted by Iain McAllister of The Giant Brain blog and Brainwaves Podcast.  Iain has been designing games for many years and is the organiser of the Edinburgh Playtest Group.

How does this work?

Games will be scheduled throughout the Saturday.  If you playtest a game then you will be given a feedback form to fill in and hand back to the designer after playing their game.

Why should I playtest a game?

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