This message is intended for board game enthusiasts in the Greater Victoria region on Vancouver Island.

Hi, I'm Michael Xuereb also known as Max, I've probably meet some of you at the various Days of Gaming or down at the cafe. I've been design games for a few years now and my first game CLONK has just been published with another game to follow hopefully. https://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/191901/clonk

I need help from the awesome local gaming community with some of my other game designs. As new board game designs near completion ready to be sent to publishers they need a lot of blind play testing and I wanted to enlist your help.

Whats blind play testing, its basically me sending you a copy of the full game, with rules, all the components in a box and leaving you to learn and play on your own. For your part you get to play a game before its published, provide feedback which in turn helps shape the final game.

If you and your group are interested in helping with some blind play testing please let me know and I will provide more details.

Hey Max! If it's not a really heavy game and it plays 2, I would be happy to help blind test with my gal, but I can't reliably commit to getting meaningful testing at other player counts, and she doesn't go for heavier fare (like Agricola is a bit overwhelming for her still). Shoot me an email if you want us to give it a run. If you don't still have my email then just gm me.

I'm in Vancouver, not Victoria, but if you need help I have a substantial and stable gaming group that meets every week. We can play-test your game. I realize you asked for Victoria-area gamers, but I'm offering just in case. Cheers.

Hi Max,

I'm also in Vancouver, so if you are ok with that, then I am willing to playtest your game.

Is it a euro, ameristyle, party, or war game? GM me if you'd like the help.

Cheers.

Hey Max, I have a fairly regular gaming group up to 4 players and can gather a group for larger (6-8) at times but it would have to be a lighter game. Up to 4 though; we can handle any weight game. I would love to find out how we could help you.

George

I'm by Uptown and I'd love to playtest with my group! I have different people I play with. Some are more casual but I have a core of 3-6 that will try complicated games.

Oh man, now I want to move to Greater Victoria just so I can call myself "a Victorian"! (Or maybe that's just the Neal Stephenson manifesting...)

Heh, "Victorian" made me think of this Mitchell and Webb Look sketch (NSFW):

Hello if you want some U.S. Play I would be more than happy to try it out. It seems right up my ally and I am a playtester and Demo person for several game companies and part of a large gaming group that can get you lots of info. If so just send me and email at Cheelara1@yahoo.com

Hey Max - I am sure we can round up the number needed for a blind test of your new game. I look forward to playing more of your games.

Hi Max!

I'd be up for trying your game!

I'm not sure about Darin - how much he plays will likely depend on how interactive the game is (he doesn't like multi-player solitaire). But I have other people I can play with too, if it ends up not being his style of game.

If you are willing to have a copy come up to Nanaimo, I would be more than willing to bring your game to my game group. I am also a designer and will be in need of some blind play testing in the near future as well.
