Playtesting is a kind of user testing where you test your game with people who match the final audience of your game, and then analyse what they say and how they play in order to understand what is wrong with your game. This workshop will actually be a talk but for a few selected lucky people.

You'll learn the different steps of organizing a playtest, how to avoid common mistakes and you'll see examples of how some games improved after going through playtesting.
At the end, you'll be able to show your game and you'll be provided with tips on how to playtest it.

Participant requirements:


Tools participants should bring:

Intended audience:

Anyone who wants to learn more about playtesting.
