Playtesting Options

To playtest the game you have the following possibilities:

1.) Conventions
Come to my stand at one of these conventions this year where I will be presenting the game:

At these conventions, I will be showing a demo copy of the game with the final artwork! Also, if you signup for the newsletter in person at one of my stands, then you join the raffle to win a free copy of the game!

2.) Prototype by mail
Ask for a prototype to be sent to you by mail. The conditions are that you have a dedicated playtesting group willing to playtest this game at least 4 times by early November. Please check the rules (see link below) carefully and consult with your friends before deciding to ask for this. You can send an email to playtest@galacticera.net to find out more. I have only 1 prototype to send out this way.

3.) Personal visit
I can maybe visit you personally for a session if you live within 100 km of Kleve (Germany). We should be at least 4 players. Please send an email to playtest@galacticera.net if you are interested in that option.

4.) Local events
The next local event where you can play the game will be in Deventer (NL) at the Café het Glas in Lood on Sunday, October 20th (11:00 – 00:00). See also the Facebook Group.
