Back in March of last year, the fate of Break My Game was pretty uncertain. We were a small playtesting group in Washington DC, USA. We had a dedicated following of designers and players but when COVID stopped all public events for the majority of the USA, I really didn't know what to do about it. Then I was approached by some dedicated designers who were sure they could help me not only get Break My Game working online, but make it an amazing community. And that's just what we did. I can't thank everyone on our Mod Team enough for all the hard work they have put in for helping to keep the wheels turning. And we wouldn't be anything without all of our great community members! Thank you so much for everything!
And look at us now! We are an official 501(c)(3) charity! We do playtesting 6 days a week with designers from all over the world! We have over 1,300 members, and host various special events such as the Rules Exchange, and the Game Jam! We have 14 extraordinary moderators and 10 event hosts that help us keep everything running as smooth as possible. We have a growing workshop program, podcast, and who can forget the Game Club!
And next week we are coming full circle. Folks, it's the moment we all have been waiting for... In-Person playtesting is coming back to Break My Game!
