Ryan talks with Joshua BishopRoby of Kallisti Press about beta playtesting — getting the game your working on playtested by people outside of your table. They talk about his current project that’s in beta playtest, Sons of Liberty. Speaking both generally and using Sons of Liberty as an example, Joshua discusses what a “beta playtest” is, the issues in getting people to playtest, what he’s looking for in feedback, and other playtesting topics. Ryan then talks about what he sees as the benefits, as a game designer, of playtesting someone else’s game.
