Playtest Game #1

"I think I'm going to be sick" - the words muttered by myself minutes before we begun the first playtest game of Bragnoc on Thursday night. In all honesty, I'd been feeling nervous all week in preparation for the game, but with 22 years of writing stories and 2 years of hard work polishing the game to what it is today there's really no surprise when you're handing it over to 4 people to love or hate it.

SPOILER ALERT - They loved it!

The game certainly went in a little bit of an odd direction at times, and the players definitely kept me on my feet but there is nothing more exhilarating than watching 4 people fall in love with your creation.

Some of my personal favourite quotes of the evening;

  • "I chop off his little finger"

  • "I ask the alien, do they probe people"

  • "I chop off his other little finger"

  • "Yes I shot myself in the leg, but in fairness it wasn't my fault"

And my personal, completely biased, albeit not in game, favourite quote of the evening is


  • "I honestly prefer Bragnoc to D&D"

I'm not crying, you're crying!

To get that kind of praise on the first run through is truly incredible to me and I would like to say a humongous thank you to the four players that played and made Caretaking the first game an absolute blast!

But don't take my word for it alone, why not join me for a game and see for yourself. We're still looking for more playtesters over the next month, so email me at michael@bragnoc.co.uk or message us on any of our social platforms and we'll add you to a game!
