We’re looking for gamers who’d like to be in the pool for testing our magazine games.

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

Board Game Playtesters

We will have beta kits of Bleeding Kansas (two-player Euro-style game of the run-up to ACW) and Lucky Forward (ideally four players) ready for testing in February 2019. Those interested in Lucky Forward should e-mail Doug at djohnson@decisiongames.com while those interested in Bleeding Kansas should e-mail Doc at doccummins@decisiongames.com.

RAF Eagle has released. E-mail Doc at doccummins@decisiongames.com if you are interested in helping with the alpha testing of the two-player version.

VASSAL modules

Our Vassal section is growing and now has over 125 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 100 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.
