“I have three children, ages 7-14, all of whom have participated in playtesting over the years with Forrest-Pruzan. Playtesting is a wonderful experience for the kids, and they give an enthusiastic “YES!” every time a testing opportunity arises. The people there are really nice and make the kids feel respected, valued, and like their opinions are the most important thing in the world. Who doesn’t love that?! The kids love the fact that they are helping someone do their job (developing games), and they get to have input into how the game turns out.
It’s also great to get a copy of the game when it comes out, because
it’s like a special gift that comes out of the blue. They get to see the results of the testing they worked on and how the final product turned out. The best part for me as a parent is watching the kids interact with the Forrest-Pruzan staff. The atmosphere is completely relaxed and comfortable, and I love how important they feel being asked for their help and input. We have taken friends with us to the testing sessions, and they’ve also found it to be an enjoyable and valuable experience.
I highly recommend participating!”

“Playtesting is lots of fun. You get to play the games before they are even released to the public. Plus, you get to see the thought process that goes into all those fun games you play. When the game you test
is finally released, you get a copy of the game for FREE!”

“We began playtesting as a fun way to expose the kids to the career world and the variety of opportunities ahead of them. Who wouldn't want a job making games? The kids love being part of the game-creating process, and they really appreciate adults wanting their opinions about the games. After eight years of testing all sorts of games, our kids have gained a perspective on work and play that
you can't get anywhere else. Forrest-Pruzan game testing is a
perfect balance of serious fun.”
