Just another person with a prototype that needs players to see where he went wrong

Anyways, I have a prototype of a trick-taking card game. Actually, there is 4 different trick taking cards, all using these cards I designed. The problem is I don't have anyone to help test it out and most of my family/friends aren't into board games.

Is there board game groups around here that I'm not aware? What is considered proper etiquette when trying to propose a playtest?

Who IS this masked man? And WHY has he never been photographed together with 6 year old millionaire playboy Calvin?

Where in southern Ontario? If you're near Toronto, sign up at TABS (http://www.tabsonline.net). I'm sure there's more than a few people over there willing to help you out.

Thanks. I live in the Mississauga area and don't have a car, so it would be a bit hard to get there.

Just joined that site, although I'm really confused. Apparently you need to register a game or something? I'm lost.

Register a game? I'm afraid you've lost me...

TABS is a forum for gamers in and around the Toronto area. There are members in Toronto, Mississauga, Brampton, Newmarket, some as far out as Kitchen, Peterborough, and Lucknow, for example. I'm sure you'll find a few willing Mississauga area gamers to playtest.

I went out there in search of experience, to taste and to touch and to feel as much, as a man can before he repents...

I'm not sure about playtesting at those events, but you might find people there who would do it at a different time.

Good luck!

Hi everybody. Sorry for the 3 previous posts. I sent the bot to the wrong thread. I'll message the bot owner to see if she can delete them.
