Board Game Design Templates

IntroductionEdit

Game design templates give you a basis from which to build your own materials for the creation and testing of your games.

Game Critique TemplatesEdit

Critique sheets are given to play testers to fill out in order to provide you with feedback after they've played a game. The following template is a general one, for more useful feedback, be specific about what you want critique on. Note that you may want to ask for anonymous feedback and not require a name or contact details.
