Hey people!

I'm conducting research for a Business Transformation project, the company I'm doing it on is quite big within the gaming/tabletop world.

My hope is to be able to transform the company and give tabletop a stable and secure future. But I need a little help with it 🙂

It takes around 3-5 min

Thank you!

ESports are a cultural cancer - and I think you should be a bit more upfront about the point of this survey.

I think dragons are the quintessential element of fantasy in the same way outer space is for sci-fi.

Tabletop gaming is turning into esports now? Why? This is about the money, isn't it?

Harsh guys. Esports are no better or worse than watching regular sports. And don't give me that usual stuff about people being encouraged to get exercise from watching regular sports, the evidence isn't there (reference https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3890601/)

Good luck with your survey.

I'm taking this opportunity to say that I am not against esports like Scott - I actually support it. I just don't understand the need of combining it with tabletop gaming.

There was never a need for one!

I'm not particularly I interested in competitive play myself but I can see how people are interested in it and how people would be interested in watching skilled players on Twitch etc.

TableTop Games makes me feel:

I felt this question should be a check box instead of multiple choice because many of these apply. Happy, Stressed, and Competitive all apply to me.

As for the E-sports thing, as long as it is fun for me to watch why not?

Weirdly enough age was in checkboxes. So you could be all ages, but only one mood

I found the selection of companies to chose from was quite telling. Most of them are toy companies rather than tabletop game companies. To me it indicates a lack of knowledge of the gaming industry and culture in the first place.

Unless something like tabletop simulator or electronic battleship is used, then how would it be an e-sport?

Another criticism of the format of the survey - the question about companies said “which of these companies have you heard of” and there was an option for Other, with a text box to fill in. Given that there was no implication in the question that you had to consider only games companies (and the examples mostly weren’t tabletop publishers anyway) I presume the intent was for me to list every other company in the world that I’ve ever heard of.

Why are the shyster business proposal surveys always so poorly conceived? If you’re a confidence trickster, surely your stock in trade is a slick presentation that makes it seem like you’re on the ball? It’s not even like this is a 419 scam where you make it look deliberately bad to weed at the people that aren’t credulous enough to fall for it.
