Wanted: El Alamein Playtesters

Post by jeffd » Thu May 23, 2013 10:30 pm

All,

As we mosey into summer, development for El Alamein and later titles in the series is kicking into high gear. We are looking for playtesters willing to download a print and play kit, print it out at your friendly neighborhood print shop (or you know, just your printer), play the board game version of El Alamein, and participate in feedback and discussion on our private playtest board. Eventually we will have an actual beta of the game to test, but we're not at that point yet.

Confidentiality during the playtest period is required, but you will eventually receive:
  • Bragging rights!
  • A playtester's credit in the finished game!
  • A castle in Germany!*
  • A chance to make El Alamein even better than Bulge, which means you can tell me what sucked about Bulge and I pretty much have to sit there and take it!
  • Even more bragging rights!
If you're interested, shoot me a PM or respond to this thread. Looking forward to it!

Cheers,

-JTD

I am new to the site and your game. I played board war games about 25 years ago. Your game got me back into it! I've played it about 50 times, love it. I'd love to do testing oaf any new games.

I received your acknowledgement of my post and am receiving play test emails. Am I going to play test the game or should I just chime in to email?

Dunno if I'm too late, but I have played probably 150 + games of Bulge and have made it to the Final round in the Pocket Tactics tournament, so I know the game well. Let me know if I can be of any help.

Would love to play test for you. Have played BOTB and DOM for many, many hours and can beat the AI on both, every time and in every scenario. Enjoy the differences between the games, especially the sweeping campaigns of DOM.

Have been playing computer based war games for 30 years now and love North Africa as a theatre of war. Knowledgeable on the history of it too, having been hooked by R.T. Smith's Vulcan game in 1985.

Am a publishing company CEO and dad of 3 by day and a strategy gamer by night. :)
