Playtesting Etiquette

For Designers:

  • Before starting your game, consider having a quick conversation about what sort of feedback is desired. This helps keep the feedback portion organized and lets players know what to focus on.

  • Be respectful, courteous, and understanding when listening always. Feel free to clarify what you're looking for and have a conversation about feedback. But DON'T argue with playtesters. This doesn't help anyone!

  • If someone says something harmful during your session, don't hesitate to let the Event Host know so they can take action.
