Magazine and Mini Game Playtesters

Thank you to all the volunteers who have tested our games. Contact Doc at doccummins@decisiongames.com if interested.

We’re looking for gamers who’d like to be in the pool for testing our games. In general, we need at least four play test sessions over an eight-week period to play the game and provide a summary of questions, clarifications, and play balance comments. Send an e-mail Doc at doccummins@decisiongames.com with your contact info and preferences.

We also have several magazine games available for play test with Vassal modules Click here.

Open Playtest

We are testing future games at Dice Tower West. If interested in participating, please contact Doc at doccummins@decisiongames.com for additional information and directions.

VASSAL modules

Our Vassal section is growing and now has over 150 modules total. We are adding modules on a regular basis from both our dedicated group of module creators as well as outside submissions. Please click here for an update on our progress and to visit our module page.

We have finished over 100 magazine game play test modules and are looking for testers for upcoming games. 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!
