Happy families are all alike. Every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.

- Leo Tolstoy

Welcome to the open playtest of Battenburgh.

In Battenburgh, you play a parent who's gotten a lot of things wrong and their offspring, family friends, and proteges. Do you make your relationships with your sibs and your (inept) parent better, or will things just get worse? Play to find out! Battenburgh is inspired by family comedies by some of your favorite directors. If you watch movies like that and think, "Damn. That's my family," this game is for you.

The open playtest includes a 14 page rulebook and 2 sets of (optionally) printable family cards. (You can also play the game using index cards).

Battenburgh will be coming to Kickstarter when this playtest concludes. Be sure to let us know what you think on the feedback form (linked in the rules PDF). Thanks for playtesting!
