Eyes X Online Playtest - 11/24/18

Post by Mike Bentley » Tue Nov 20, 2018 12:12 pm

There will be an online playtest of Eyes That Do Not See X on Saturday, November 24th at 3 PM EST.

To sign up, shoot me an e-mail at bentley.michael.j@gmail.com. There will be a limit of 10 players. It will be played as a shootout. There is no cost to play.

The tournament will probably be played over Skype for Business. I'll send a link with info on how that will work. Screen sharing isn't perfect so you'll want to do yourself a favor and got into a place with a good internet connection, preferably a wired one.

In-person mirrors haven't been announced but take those into account before signing up.

Field Update (11/22/18):

In the original thread, you mentioned potentially hosting a playtest mirror in December, but it looks like the only poll dates are in late November. Just to clarify, is this the only playtest mirror you plan on hosting?

Thanks for running/making this! I'm really excited to play again. (I can't believe it's already on #X...)

This is the only playtest I'm planning on doing. I may do another online mirror later in the spring for people who aren't able to attend in-person sites.

I've announced the date for this Saturday, November 24th at 3 PM EST.

Apologies, I'm going to have to postpone this. It will most likely be on a weekday more into December. More details TBA.
