Jeff is going to be making enough changes following our first round of Zeppelin Armada playtesting that we’re going to want to do a second round in another couple weeks or so. For this, we need both our prior playtesters already on board, and a handful of fresh-blood folks who haven’t seen the first iteration.

So if you’re not already a playtester for us, and you think that sometime in late May/early June you’ll be able to do some multiple-session playtesting (2 to 4 sessions worth is probably 2 to 6 hours), I am interested in hearing from you. Volunteer with your credentials in the comments below, or you can email me at evilhat on the gmail.

  1. I’d be glad to take it to run at Camp Nerdly at the end of the week. I’ll be running several other playtests over the course of the con and I’d be happy to help.

  2. Sounds fun.

    2-6 hours total, or 2-6 hours per session? If its the latter, I’ll have to count myself out (this is a bad time of year)–but if it is the former–I’m 100% all over it if you’ll have me and my gaming crew.

    • That’s the expected total amount of time. Each individual game session of play should take between 30 and 90 minutes. We’re HOPING each session of play will come in under an hour, but it may not.

  3. I would be happy to do some playtesting. I have a fortnightly game night and monthly club to give it a run at. Plenty of variety in player age and experience. Time frame is not an issue. Plus, we’re Australian (well, most of us)!

  4. Not very likely unfortunately. At least not within a good time frame.

    • Okay. I’ll hold off on bringing you in unless it somehow turns out that the playtest files are ready in the next 2 days. We’ll find other opportunities for you to playtest something eventually, I’m sure. 🙂

  5. I am keen, I have a good crew to try out games with down here. I helped playtest other evil hat products so I am keen to see what else is coming out.

  6. I am an experienced gamer (of all types) that lives with a gaming group totalling six (our lovely commune) and also participate in a family game day once a month with completely novice to experienced players of board and card games (ages 11 to 82).

  7. I have a gaming group that meets once a week. I am currently running a Dresden Files game for 7 people; we could switch gears and playtest something, especially if it is a Fate game. This DFRPG is their first foray into Fate, and they love it, and I find it easy to run. Zeppelin Armada sounds awesome. Is it a scenario for Spirits of the Century, or something else completely? Thanks for this opportunity in advance. I love your company, your games, and the way you approach the gaming community.

  8. Hey Fred,

    I’d be interested in playtesting your game. I’m a published author and game designer. I have playtested with Steve Jackson Games, AEG, and others. Let me know if I can help!
