Jeez, I hate to beg/whine/plead, but I'm wondering if there are
any brave souls out there who would be willing to playtest a
scenario from a dilettante designer?
A few things;
Boards 66 & 59 are needed
Axis Minors, Allied Minor, Italian, and British counter mix are needed.
(AoO AFV's are used)
A few(3) fortifications are used.
And no fear of a few "spices added" SSRs.
"Low Budget Ballet for Crap Troops & Tin Cans"(working title only)
PM me if this sounds like your kind of abuse.
Thanks!

Send it my way Chris. I'll give it a run thru. We're finished PT'ing for BFP for a little while and are willing to test another one. Always enjoy your designs.

Let me adjust that . when not programming, stepping through the debugger, fixing broken unit tests, helping testers, tracking down bugs, or trouble shooting compilers, IDEs, etc...then I am mostly programming...lol

Hot about a little more volunteering and a little less suggestions?

Its sometimes hard to find someone to play-test something with me. My usual face to face opponent and I do a lot BFP stuff.

I would not mind doing some VASL play-testing but my time is somewhat limited and PBEM maybe the only way for me to do, which slows things down a tab.

Not sure if I'd find any takers?

I know everyone's ASL time is limited, so when people get a chance
to play, playtesting a scenario is usually not high on the list.
However, every extra set of eyes that looks at a PT-scenario card helps
with clearing up questions/errors/wording etc., before it gets sent off
to the Journal Submission Overlord.(i.e.-Chas)

Well Chris, if you'd like another set of eyes and if I can find (talk) someone into a PBEM play-test, I'd be more than happy to give it a go.

I'm awake and making myself an espresso. Give me a little bit
and I'll get the scenario out to you guys.
Thanks very much for the generous responses!

Hi Chris

The eASlegue tried something new this round - we were offered unpublished games from BF Poland in Flames to use - it may be something a few of us could use as a playtesting ground
I'ts not everyone's cup of tea - I have never playtested but I cant imagine its more than (at worse) saving the logs and sending them to maybee you to review - you can see the whole game live and may make it easier for you to see any imbalance
It would be a slow turn around of three months though so that may not fit your timeline

Just a thought

Rob, I suppose that's a possibility!
:smoke:
Im not under any (known)time constraint at this point.
Not sure when the next Journal is going to be published.
But Journal inclusion would be my goal for this scenario.
Let me know if you're interested in taking a look at the scenario.
thanks!
:D
