Legacies - Strategy Game Playtest


What does it take to make a great game? Playtesting! Join fellow Mensan, Jason Brooks, for a playtest of his strategy game - Legacies. This strategic ~2hr game, which focuses on creating a Legacy for your character that will last for centuries, was featured in both GenCon’s 2018 program and at Stonemaier Games (Scythe, Viticulture, & Euphoria) Design Day 2018. Make relationships, choose investments, and select successors to carry your influence forward well after you’re gone. This is your chance to provide feedback on an in-flight game design before it is fully published in the near future!
