Faete testing

So...Marcian, how'd it go at the con? Learn a lot? What sort of notes did you get? What's the number one takeaway from the testing?

He learned a ton of shit actually. We had 2 ladies join us and give a ton of feedback. It was a very interesting experience. Unfortunately, I gave him all the notes I took since I was just a guinea pig with a free pass

Escher was an amazing assistant, and I was super happy for the experience. Right now, I'm in an odd place where I'm paralyzed by how much I've learned. I need to update the game now, but there's a lot to go with. I have notes and notes and not sure where to begin.

But people tend to like the game. I've got some legit negative feedback I respect and a lot of positive feedback to work with. It's helping out. I think this game can really happen which is, ya know... terrifying. :)

Okay, perhaps I can help with the notes. Ready?

Go through each line of feedback and codify it in terms of "Look/Feel", "Rules Question", "Game Pacing", etc. Try to keep the categories fairly broad.

Next, see if you can normalize the feedback. If there are 4 different ways people are saying "the game is too slow" try to identify them and get them to be roughly the same.

Once you have a fairly strong list of common feedback, look for the ones which will have the biggest impact if addressed. That's your starting point.

This guy acts like he knows what he's doing!   ;)
