Well, I'm at the point where my limited time demands that I spend playtesting time with my own game designs.

However, I enjoy the occasional break from the repetitive "tedium" of playing yet-another-test of a game, by reading over other people's rules. Which is why I enjoy going through this forum.

Problem is ... there's a lot of posts on games that are just at the very beginning of game design; and most of those just announce the raw idea(s) behind the game, but don't have a formal rules document yet.

I'm willing to read and critique your rules document, but it would be nice if you have already put a good amount of effort into it. I don't mind pointing out spelling and grammar errors; but it would be better if I didn't spend the entire time getting distracted by bad spelling and bad grammar. I don't mind if there are no pictures and if the formatting is simple; but it would be nice if those features were included.

Just post a response on this thread containing a link to your rules document. If you've got your own thread or a BGG page where you want to collect your feedback, provide that link as well; otherwise, I'll respond via geekmail.

I'd like to ask that we limit responses on this thread to identifying the rules documents and their links. Feedback/Responses to those rules documents should go elsewhere (probably geekmail).

Thanks!

Here are three of mine. They're at that stage where I, as designer, think they're complete ... but I haven't given a complete stranger a chance to read the rules for themselves and play the game. Typically, I'm the one teaching the game directly to the players.

Feel free to do any, none, or all of them. All three of these are submitted to BGG contests at the moment. Please respond on the forum threads (links provided), or geekmail me.

Many thanks in advance.

edit 3&4 (in case it matters, the order I listed here is the order of preference. But you should also know that the Log In E-Scape rules are a lot longer compared to the other two.)

I would love some feedback on my rules sets, especially the first which has been largely ignored but was the hardest to write.

Island Emergency - A4 (two sides) https://www.dropbox.com/s/efi9r6dr4tep4m7/Island%20Emergency...
OR identical rules but in a neat A7 Fold Book (print double sided) - https://www.dropbox.com/s/f2x376er4lphnw9/Island%20Emergency...

Scrapyard Battle - Dropbox Folder for pdfs ready for sharing - https://www.dropbox.com/sh/zgydx2pl2k3zg3n/0f-tfeNCNv?m

Hermit Crab Havoc - Dropbox Folder - https://www.dropbox.com/sh/i1xp6i6i72h4br6/ll46XwnNUx (Feedback could include reactions to the title too - still not sure about that one)

I will be happy to read your rules over in the next few days.

The rules for my game, Gemstone Island, are here: http://sonyawrites.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/Gemstone-I...

I'm planning to put this game on Kickstarter later this month and I'll gladly take some last-minute thoughts on how the rules are written!
