I've just completed the initial prototype for my space combat game and would be interested in finding volunteers to help playtest, edit rules, add ideas, etc. The game is called "Space! Where Even a Generic Title Cannot Stop an Unstoppable Thing That Cannot Be Stopped". somewhat. The files are all located here: http://www.mediafire.com?sharekey=dafff67c37f587af19747bd910...

Also, anytime you mention the game's title you should add a nonsensical subtitle or tagline to the game. I'll be collecting those...

Thanks to anyone willing to check it out!

Space! Where a bird in the hand is worth less than two in the bush.

Awesome! I will totally give it some tests! I love space and I love games.

I haven't play tested anything before, but I'll give you my impressions, comments, etc. I'd be happy to help you out as well, especially in editing, proof reading (as time allows, stupid real life).

I'll try to remember the nonsensical subtitle or tagline, but no promises.

Space! Now bigger and better!
Space! Larger than the leading state of existence!
Space! Its just an airlock away!
Space! Where what happens in space eventually falls to earth in a blazing ball of flames!
Space! Where it all went down!
Space! What will the neighbors think?
Space! Earth's backyard!
Space! What will they think of next?

Space! Where taglines don't just write themselves!
Space! Where the tagline goes on, and on, and on, etc.
Space! Where all men are mimes!

It is print and play. In fact, I've even included an all black/white board (and one set of black/white tokens for the units) for those of you without color ink.

Space! You can be my baby. It don't matter if you're black and white.

Good god. It this actually cost money, I would buy it if only for the shifting witty taglines. I'll be thinking more up all day.

Space! Call now and double your order, FREE!
Space! Wearing your mother's favorite lingerie was never this fun!
Space! Now with parrots!

Sheesh...

Space! Like a haiku declaring the love for all living things except in cardboard.

Space! A kick to the groin, a whale with a potted plant, and a soundstage in California.

Space! Not entirely unlike what your ex-girlfriend said she needed last August before you found out she was cheating on you with your brother.

Space! Where no one can hear you argue the rules.

Space! Where men are men and sometimes they're the women too.

Now with additional Douglas Adams themes:

Space! Bring me Eccentrica Gallumbits and a PanGalactic GargleBlaster stat!

Space! We're groovy froods and we know where our towels are.

Space! The plans were on display in the bottom of a locked filing cabinet, stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying 'Beware of the Leopard"

Space! is big. Really big. You just won't believe how vastly hugely mindboggingly big it is. I mean you may think it's a long way down the road to the chemist, but that's just peanuts to Space!

Ok ok.. One more...

Space! So long, and thanks for all the fish.

My apologies. It's late, I've had a couple, and mixing sleep depravation and beer tends to make one giggle at some of the most inane things. Right now, I'm still giggling at "Beware of the Leopard", just because I've always found that part of the books funny and that's apparently amplified right now.

G'night until tomorrow!

A couple generous fellows advised me that my ridiculously long filenames for the playtest pdf's were causing some issues with the download. This has been corrected and filenames have been changed to much simpler (more boring) designations.

Thank you to all who have agreed to playtest the game! Don't be gentle, let me know if something doesn't work, or something needs to be added, or if it just isn't fun yet. And if you have an idea that you think will make it better, feel free to share it.

And for the many fun taglines/subtitles I've received already: Thanks! Keep em coming!

Space! Where even the creator makes horrible mistakes...

I got the same issues - all you need to do is add ".pdf" to the end.
