Mini Game Playtesters
Thank you to all the volunteers who have tested our games. We are starting another magazine game group shortly (World at War). We still have mini-game play test kits for Khartoum (Hand of Destiny-Gordon/Sudan) and Red Eagles (Air War-Kuban).
We’re looking for gamers who’d like to be in the pool for testing these games. In general, we need at least four play test sessions over a two-month period to play the game and provide a summary of questions, clarifications, and play balance comments. Send an e-mail Doc at email@example.com with your contact info and preferences.
We also have magazine games available for play test with Vassal modules. Click here.
Board Game Playtesters
There are no remaining play test kits for Imperium Romanum III, however we will be hosting a play test session at PacificCon (Santa Clara, CA, 1-4 Sep).
We have one remaining play test kit for Alamo to Appomattox,our Krieg-style American Civil War game. This game requires two players (four is ideal). It includes introductory scenarios for the Texas Independence and the Mexican-American War, an 1850’s card-driven game, and four starting points for the ACW (1853, 1857, 1861, and 1865).
All groups must be able to play at least two days per month. Those interested should e-mail Doc at firstname.lastname@example.org
DGHQ Open Playtest
We have frequent open playtesting in Bakersfield and Ridgecrest, CA. We are testing our future magazine games, mini and folio games, as well as our future boxed games. Anyone interested can contact Doc at email@example.com for additional information and directions.
Part-time contractor positions for game developers are open for the upcoming Science Fiction and Euro Game lines (can be done from anywhere but have a required annual meeting with the Publisher and Managing Game Developer). Click here for more information and how to apply.
Computer Game Playtesters
RAF Eagle is in beta testing. E-mail Doc at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in helping with the beta testing.
Our Vassal section is growing and now has over 50 modules total. We are adding modules on a regular basis from both our dedicated group of module creators as well as outside submissions. Thanks to everyone who has submitted modules as well as those who are utilizing the Vassal modules created specifically in support of our play testing program. Please click here for an update on our progress and to visit our module page.
We have finished over 40 magazine game play test modules and are looking for testers. We’ve made the process easy by setting up a separate page with all of the modules (and brief game descriptions) available for play test and an easy registration process to receive them. We’d appreciate your input on these games so they will be even better! Click here.
