In Which The Warlock Wants Some Feedback...

With preparations for the upcoming convention season already in the works, I've been rattling around an idea that I think could really help the Guild move forward. 

One thing we've never really had is feedback on our games.  While we chat with the people that game with us at our various games, obviously, we've never really tracked any trends in what gamers want, or whether they're actually satisfied when they come away from the table. 

As such, I took advantage of the time I had during semester exams and put together this, a potential half-page feedback sheet for Wittenberg-run convention games.

 Thoughts?  Comments?  Ideally, we'll be able to use this for three purposes:
  • Add gamers from the convention circuit to our community mailing list, to keep them updated on WittCon and other Guild events.
  • Find out what games that they want us to be running, so that we can provide supply to match the demand.
  • Receive commentary on how people feel about our games, as well as whether we're doing a good job as GMs.
So, what do you think?  How about some feedback on our feedback?

    I really like this idea! I can't believe we haven't done it before. 5 stars.

    Maybe add a spot for "what game is this?" or something like that. I imagine that a GM who runs multiple games in a day might get all the forms mixed up with no way of telling which was for which game. I could easily see "Name of game", "Your GM" and "What Con is this?" filled out by the GM ahead of time for convenience, so maybe isolate those from the other questions?

  3. I wanted to keep the sheets generic, so that they'd be easy to use for a variety of games.

    However, it makes sense for a "What game is this?" section. I'll see if I can fit that one in.

    Any others?
