How amazing is this: I forgot my badge one day at GDC, so I sent out a message that if any indie devs wanted to play my paper prototype of 'Chess the Gathering' they could meet me somewhere and play. Then Dave Carrigg, Erik Asmussen, David Evans, and Michael Carriere came to my rescue and hung out and played my infant prototype over some beers. I have to admit all GDC I felt kinda like the hot chick at a bar that forgot her wallet and is rewarded by being bought drinks all night, but really: indies are amazing and GDC is awesome.
Below is footage of some of the play through, but most importantly the design discussion at the end.
Again, I've fallen behind on posting videos. For videos 2, 3 & 4 of gamers playing CTG in the PAX East table-top area, check out the CTG playlist.
