Hey, everyone.  My next game is currently in production.  It's entitled Dirty Secrets, and it's all about the classic detective story, in the vein of Raymond Chandler and Ross MacDonald.  I'll be looking for playtesters in the very near future, so please post here if you're interested.  In the meantime, here are the playtest threads that I've posted so far.

Group 1
[Dirty Secrets] Initial Playtest Process
[Dirty Secrets] A Sad Old Man
[Dirty Secrets] Resolving a Crime, or "Look! Look! I have a Grid, too!"
[Dirty Secrets] A painful reunion
[Dirty Secrets] We wrap our first game

I explicitly don't have time to take on another game right now; just wanted you to know that we're watching out here.

Is it too late to playtest this? I have a group that would love it.

Yes, but....

I'm going to press at the end of the month, so, unless you'd be able to put something together within the next few days, it wouldn't be helpful.  (If you can, though, PM me, and I'll get you the playtest packet.)

But!

I'm releasing this game at GenCon as a First Edition which I intend to revise within the next couple of years, based on player feedback.  Anyone who contributes to the revision will get a discount on the revised edition, when I release it.  (I note all this in the book.)  This is my approach to the ashcan concept that's been kicked around here of late.

So, even if you can't contribute now, you can still contribute to the longer-term development of the game, which I think would be great.

Here is a belated playtest, mostly for completeness.
