WORKSHOP Discord playtest session

Post by Santa Claus »

I would like to announce a playtest session for WORKSHOP to be held in a private Discord on 2/9. Initial plans are to begin at roughly 2 PM ET and see how much progress is made, with 2/16 functioning as a spillover date for any additional playtesting needed.

This playtesting session will be free. All players who are ineligible for playing a mirror of WORKSHOP (e.g. college graduates) will be allowed, as well as players who are eligible but are not planning on attending a site. If you are in the latter group, please be sure to let us know explicitly that this is the case.

Use the following Google Sheet to indicate interest in attending this playtest mirror: sign-up sheet.

We recently announced a closed Discord mirror of the tournament for 3/7 here; if you’re currently eligible to play the set with your school, consider attending that rather than the playtest.

To clarify on the original post, this will be held at 2 PM Eastern Time.

EDIT: it has been brought to my attention that I didn’t do math good and there isn’t enough time for each category, so I’ve updated them

This is the order of categories and proposed itinerary of the playtest - this is not finalized and will change based on the pace of the reading:

2 PM: Literature
3:30 PM: History
5 PM: Science
6:30 PM: Arts
7:30 PM: "Legends”
8:30 PM: Philosophy
9:30 PM: Other Religion

Expected to be pushed to 2/16
2 PM: Social Science
3:30 PM: Other

I have just sent the logistics email - if you are interested in attending from this point forward, please contact me directly at pandasmoothie @ gmail.com.

This is happening now - we have just moved on to history. If you are still interested, just let me know - we expect to have additional categories play-tested next week as well, so if you want to do those let me know as well or sign-up on the sheet and we'll get you in before then.

More reasonable schedule, with current pace (updated as we go):
2 PM: Literature
4 PM: History
5:30 PM: Science
7:30 PM: Arts
8:30 PM: "Legends”

Expected to be pushed to 2/16
2 PM: Philosophy
3 PM: Other Religion
4 PM: Social Science
5 PM: Other

Thank you to everyone who attended the playtest yesterday - we appreciate your feedback.

We will be playtesting the remainder of the questions this coming Sunday, beginning with Arts.

We are anticipating a 2 PM ET start time again - the same invite will work, and anyone who has indicated interest on the sheet will be contacted (including those that did so after the previous playtest).
