So You Want to Play Test Goblins!?

Goblins pointing and laughing drawn by SymattWe are finally at a stage where we feel that we can start asking for volunteers to play test Goblins!. We are going to limit it to only a few groups at first, get their feedback and then expand the number of groups after that. What we will provide in the first round is the Character Generation chapter, the Combat chapter, the Doin’ Stuff chapter, and a couple of scenarios. The rest of the book is still being edited, illustrated and laid out. When we expand the play testing group, we’ll add extra content.

What do I need to do?

The very very very first thing is to read our explanation of what the game is. Goblins! is not a game that is going to suit everyone. We know this, we don’t apologise for it, and if it doesn’t suit you and your group, don’t torture yourself with it.

After passing the first test, the next step is to join this site and fill out a profile. Then hop onto the Forums and tell us that you want to be involved.

Once we have selected you (and your gaming group) you will be required to sign a non-disclosure agreement – standard stuff and, sadly, quite necessary.

We are anticipating the first initial stages will take a week or two and then we will start emailing out packages of rules, etc.

Things you can do to improve your chances of being selected

The more we see you around, the more likely we are to pick your gaming group. Like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter (see the sidebar), say hi on the forums, etc, are all things that will make it more likely you’ll get noticed. Letting us know a bit about you and your gaming experience will also help.

At the bare minimum, you need to join this site and fill out a profile.
