Solitaire Games on Your Table - September 2013
And when you do, come tell us about it.
September is also the official start to the 2013 Solitaire Print-and-Play contest! Many designers have already thrown their hat into the ring, and are right now working on free solitaire games just for the likes of you! So let's support them.
Last month, Tracy did a Session Report contest, so this month let's do a:
Playtesting Feedback Contest!
Ok, so the name is not as exciting, but here's the deal. Many designers put their games up in the contest as a way of getting feedback and playtesters. So head over to the contest page, find a game or three that look interesting, and give 'em a whirl. Leave some feedback for the designer (this is key), and come back here and tell us about the game. If you've already playtested some of these games, those count, too. As long as you come here and tell us!
At the end of the month, I'll collect entries into a drawing for 150 for the first name I draw, and all that is tipped to this thread for the second name I draw (and can't be the first person twice)! You get one entry for the first game you playtest, two for the second, three for the third and so on (so if you play 2 games [and leave feedback about them!] you'll get 3 entires). I'll gather up the names and pull a random winner sometime at the beginning of October.
So go play some free games! There are some really great ones this year.
[Full disclosure: I do have a game in the contest, but it's got plenty of playtesters already. When picking games, unless you really want to try mine, please try and pick games that don't have any feedback yet! I'm not doing this to drum up playtesters for my own games.]
I'd like to thank all those who came before me:
Thanks to all of them for helping keep these lists alive and active. Next month, Ryan will take over again.
Also don't forget that you can subscribe to these lists right here.
