Playtests of Grey Ranks and Business Solutions. Both went well – better than expected in both cases. Business Solutions takes something we are all experts at – workplace absurdity – and wraps a game around it. Everyone is an expert player. Andy was hysterical as the go-go-type-A bastard ex-boss. Ian was priceless as the clingy ex-girlfriend. Shane rocked out in a scene where he worked as hard as possible to avoid doing any work. Grey Ranks was pretty much numbers and moving around the grid, and that was functional enough that full playtests are in order. I learned that some sub-systems are still too tight, and that I need to loosen them up. Easier to do than the reverse!
