Age of Primes Playtest

Hey guys,

Jake and I finally have everything ‘smoothed out’ with our playtesting via Tabletopia. I use quotes because there are some issues that we were not prepared for since this was our first attempt at recording. Things such as… stop breathing into the mic.

That said, I’d like to share our first recorded playtest session. I must apologize in advance, the video ran around 40 minutes long, but it ended up being a good game as it wasn’t decided until the final play of the game. The game was a limited format game, which means that it was played only using two Theme Deck (without customization!). Theme Decks are 70 cards and have one copy of each rare and three copies of each common.

We chose to play Wren vs. Council, which in hindsight, I wish we had done Wren vs Wren. That would have given you a better appreciation for combat in the game. However, this game definitely demonstrated the strength of Hidden Actions.

I’d love to hear your feedback. Please leave us comments either here on Ageofprimes.com or on YouTube. Rest assured… this is not the last video. We want to demo many different games including both limited and constructed.
