    Game Design Critique!

    Are you an aspiring game creator? Back us at this level and have your work-in-progress design played and critiqued by Owen Duffy, game reviewer for The Guardian, Ars Technica and Tabletop Gaming Magazine!

    Owen will play your game multiple times and provide feedback on its strengths, as well as potential areas for improvement. You don't need to have final artwork and components. Please be aware that in order to provide you with the most valuable possible feedback, this will include some constructive criticism.

    Unfortunately time constraints mean that we won't be able to provide feedback on campaign-based or legacy games.

    We'll also send you a free copy of The Board Game Book, and a PDF edition!

    Includes:
    • In-depth, constructive critique of your work-in-progress game
    • Beautiful hardcover copy of The Board Game Book 2019
    • A free PDF copy of the book
