NOTE: Applications are now closed. We received a ton of applications! Thanks to those who applied.

There's been a lot of hustle and bustle around PHG.com since we upgraded the Plaid Hat Corps system. By registering to be a Plaid Hat Corps member, you can now host events that give you credit in the Plaid Hat Games store, volunteer to demo with us at an upcoming convention for similar benefits, and, now, apply to be a playtester for upcoming games.

The first game we'll be recruiting playtesters through PlaidHatGames.com for is Mice and Mystics: Downwood Tales. This is the upcoming, highly anticipated big-box expansion for Mice and Mystics whose miniatures have been featured lately on the Mice and Mystics Facebook page.

You can apply to be a playtester by signing up to be a Plaid Hat Corps member and then going to the playtest page. Applying involves submitting an NDA, which means downloading, printing it out, signing, scanning and uploading. Responsibilities and perks are listed on the appropriate pages, as well as below.

Playtesters will be responsible to print and assemble their own playtest copies within 2 weeks of receiving download files. Each playtester must report and log plays, participate in forums, and adhere to the terms of the NDA. Playtesters that are found to be inactive will be removed from the playtester forums.

Playtesters will receive a $75 dollars in Plaid Hat Games Credit which they can use to buy Downwood Tales when released or any of our other Plaid Hat Games products.

10 games will be required to receive the PHG.com credit. All playtesters that log 2 or more plays will receive credit in the rule book. Playtesters should have a good knowledge of (and should already own) Mice & Mystics.

I'm interested, but I would imagine you'd need the people you play test with to also become a plaid hat corps member? I'll have to ask a couple of my gaming buddies to see if they would be interested too.

Can you do it solo? The rules support it, so it seems like that will need to be tested as well.

I have only owned Mice and Mystics for 2 months now but I am so into the story that I bought the Heart of Glorm Expansion and can not wait for Downwood Tales! I've been following you guys on Facebook and loving everything I've seen so far. Being a playtester would be amazing! Totally pick me!

I would love to playtest as well, but I'm spending most of my gaming freetime doing demos for new groups. I don't have any group that's progressed far enough to demo this expansion.

I am very excited to be able to participate in playtesting a game I enjoy so much. I am also looking forward to the process as this will be my first authentic experience in doing so. Our family, which includes two boys aged 4 and 7, has played through SaR and is currently working through HoG. I am willing to "risk" the potential for spoilers to be a part of the development of a game that has been such a joy for my family.

I (and my family) absolutely Love this game!
It would be a great privilege to playtest ... fingers crossed you'll consider me.
As soon as my Plaid Hat Corps member application clears I'll make a submission.
Best of luck ~ Rom.

Bummer, I haven't had a chance to pick up Mice and Mystics yet. I had a blast playtesting Dead of Winter and have been looking forward to my next opportunity to do it again.
