Playtesting: Notes, Analytics, and Giving the Reigns to the Player

  • Take notes on everything, then take some more
  • Always include analytics in the game itself
  • Players often can't communicate the specifics of a problem that they have, but that's okay
  • Ask the right questions
  • Your game's core rules should be: self explanatory, quickly understood, and/or instructed somewhere
