Final Proofreading #2, and Blind Testing
Thank you for all of the notes on the last batch of stuff, if was greatly appreciated. We have fixed those errors, finished the final manual layout, and are ready to send everything out! Since we can still make minor changes to the manual during proofing, we will be uploading all of our remaining files and starting the process once we hit the publish button on the update. This will get it started, especially on the harder stuff like box insert and custom meeples, while we do any final needed tweaks (like sharpening the background graphics).
While proofing is going on, we will be doing blind testing of the manual. We have purposely not taught some of our gamer and non-gamer friends the game yet so that we can hand them a manual and a prototype and see what happens now. We will also be looking at some local game stores and hitting up their regular gaming groups to do the same. If you are local to Maryland, and have not played (or have friends that have not) and you would like to play, please get in touch and we will try and set something up.
Below you will find the mission and task cards, and here is a link to the manual. Again, if you have some time, please read some or all and let us know if we've missed anything, or if you have any suggestions.
