Each six hour day will consist of two sessions with a one hour break. You will be asked to sign a non-disclosure agreement confirming that you will not discuss the games you playtest outside of the event. On day one, you will be assigned to a group in which you will test your own game and commit to playing and providing feedback on several other games. There will also be a discussion session with an invited speaker.
The second day will involve continued play-testing and a game jam in which you will work with your assigned group to develop a prototype based on preset themes, mechanics and materials.

On the day
The physical appearance of the prototype is not critical, other than that the graphics are clear enough to make it easily playable.
The sessions will be 2 hours long. This time includes:
We suggest you allow about 30 minutes to debrief your session. This means that if your game takes more than 80 minutes to play, you will need to figure out a way of truncating it for test purposes.
We will provide a contact list of all participants to enable exchange of information after the event.
