So, I ran a playtest of a card game I’d been designing on saturday, and overall it went fairly well. Mechanics are mostly solid. That said, the game takes too long to complete right now. Fortunately, I can already think of several ways to mitigate this. The rules document needs quite a bit of polish, that I’ve already started on, and that will likely be the bulk of the revision work this time around.
Costing of cards also needs some revision.
But the feedback was generally posiitve, so I’ll be picking away at it again and trying again soon.
