Hello everyone.

I am looking for a handful of very dedicated play testers for Clash 2nd Ed.

4-6 people who are willing to play a substantial (10+) number of games and give feedback from their sessions. I can offer a copy of the final product for your trouble and hopefully lots of fun and interesting discussions.

Obviously you need to have an open and constructive mind set.

Some of the testers must have the expansion, but a few don't have to.

Things you need to know:
- Facebook required (that is where discussions and reports will take place)
- You need to re-read the new rules which are very similar, but do have changes you need to pick up
- You must either print materials or refer to the PDF's I will provide.
- If you have the ability to make custom d10s, let me know (not required)

So, if you are interested let me know here along with any other information I need to know. I will contact a few of you.

Thanks.

Definitely up for it. Don't have expansion, can print own materials, would be mainly 2-3 player sessions.

Totally up for it! Can print out any PNP materials. 1-4/5 sessions should not be a problem here.

I am interested as well. I have the expansion. I should be able to print materials. I am not sure about a consistent play group but willing to play multiplayer single handed if it will be beneficial. If there is a possibility of solo play that needs play testing, that would be great. I do not have the ability to make custom d10s.

Hi, l really love the game vey much. It is one of my favorite games. I have been trying to get the expansion but it was pretty hard to find. I would love to be a play tester for the game. I play boardgames regularly,like 3-4 times a week. I would have no problem finding groups to playtest with.

Ooh, does it sound like 2nd edition will include expansion out of the box?

Hi Christian,

I'm really keen to play test. I've got the base game and expansion (though the expansion is in French so I created reference sheets - see the Files on BGG). I've played CoC many times over the years. It's one of my top games - alongside Agricola - and I would like to see how it is going to evolve.

We have a consistent group of players and we can try different player counts.

I also have a 3D printer if there are new components!

Coincidentally, I've played a few games of Merchants and Marauders last weekend and it made me think I should get Clash back on the table. And then I saw your post...

Hi Christian

Totally up for this. Best Civ game out there (and my favourite game evs!)

I would love to see this game coming back for another go. I have expansion and ability to print. Can’t do custom D10s though (although I see that’s not essential).

The only issue is player count. 2 and 3 will be fairly easy. 4 a bit more challenging. Any more could be problematic (manageable but much less frequent).

Let me know

James

Edit: I’m on Facebook

I would love to help with playtesting. I do have the expansion, I have a facebook account, and would be willing to print my own materials. Excited to hear that a 2nd edition may be around the corner either way.

Interested, have both game and expansion and willing to help on the new version!

Update: I also have a group of at least 4 people (and can find one or two more that plays weekly when possible - and at least 2 or 3 times per month), can print (cannot make custom D10, but can probably hack with printing also) and have Facebook.

Thanks!

Extremely interest to play-test this indeed, this is by far my favorite game, and in fact I did contemplate reaching out for you as it was clear you could be nearing that stage !

I suppose I'll have to provide "friends" to play this myself, is there any restriction to that? i.e. how public a place you're happy for us to play this? (*)
I see several people from the UK replying, if you're in/near London am happy to teamup!

Thanks for reaching out Cristian


* - am asking because It will be mainly 2P sessions if I don't go out to meeting groups etc.

Hi Christian,

Thanks for the exciting news and the opportunity. This is my gaming group's favourite Civ game, and we would love to be a part of it.

My gaming group usually meet around 2 or 3 times a month, with 4-5 people. We probably can make 6p happen. Do have expansion, okay to print PDF but unable to make dice (but we do have standard d10s).

Hello Christian,

Great to hear things are moving forward with a new edition. I still have the base game, expansion,and promo. Plenty of opportunities to test with different groups. Let me know if I can help.

I should be able to get the plays in. "Open Minded" will be the hardest part for my playgroup, but I should be able to prune to the few good testers. I myself have levelled up since the last rounds of testing, and hope I could offer better insights.

I can also do custom D10s, be it 3D printed or stickers on dice. I can't design 3D yet, just have a printer.

Unfortunately i cannot playtest.

I remember writing in a thread at the end of 2012, from a computer lab at my (then) college, that i was supposed to be studying but i was instead reading about your amazing game and it would be your fault if i flunked out. I then bought the game in early 2013 and thought it was perfect as-is. You then mentioned the expansion which i was irritated about because you had said earlier that you tried to make a perfect game that didnt require expansions and i thought you had succeeded. Nonetheless, the expansion came out and i bought it almost immediately. Unfortunately, i didnt have the group by that point that i had at the base release, so it's only come out a couple times.

So once again, on (increasingly less credible) principle, i will state that i am sure it will be great but what i have now needs no improvement.

I'm not able to playtest. But I do want to express my support and excitement. Both of your games are among my top 5. Also, mini tech had come a long way since CoC was published. With a great artist and 3D sculptor on this project, the results could be stunning. We already know the gameplay underneath, but an updated presentation could make this a must-have.

I am interested in this! I have the base game and expansion and can print new materials. I can probably get blank dice and draw in symbols.

I’m a bit hard pressed with large print jobs, but maybe we can figure something out locally (very locally it seems).

10+ plays will take a while though.

Hey Christian. Since I returned to the board game scene a couple + of years ago, Clash of Cultures has been on the top of my wishlist, but haven’t pulled the trigger because the expansion is nearly impossible to get... having said that, I play with the wife every weekend all sorts of games (you can see our collection), and we’d love to offer ourselves as a consistent two players fresh eyes source that is able to play every weekend.

We can grab a copy of the Z-Man version right away (it might take a few days to arrive) and print materials.

Can’t make D-10s though, sorry! But I can proxy some if required.

Hi Christian!

CoC is my favourite 4x game! I have a strong group in Warsaw (Poland) - we would be very happy to leave a fingerprint on this project. I dont't belive in luck but I'm going to ask my friends to keep fingers for you to choose me.
