Help, I need playtestors

Repost from another thread (I found this area after I posted in the other thread...sorry)  :(

Hello, everybody!  I need your help.  I have several games that I am working on and and desperately need some perspective outside of my local group.  I need some groups of playtestors to try my games and fill out review forms.  I am looking for people who have a current playgroup of at least 6 people.  I would like to get a couple of playtest groups in different areas of the country to give me various perspectives.

Please only serious playtestors.  If you are interested, please post on this thread.  Please leave a short, basic bio of your gaming history and your playgroup size and location so I can find differing viewpoints from different areas.  Thank you in advance for all your help! 
Grace and Peace,

Hi Nathaniel,
I have a lot of friends who enjoy playing games that make you think, and are fun at the same time.  I currently have a Redemption playgroup of about a dozen people, and probably have about a dozen other people that I play other strategy games with (ranging from 8-40 yrs old).  We are in Eastern KY.

Besides Redemption, the most common games played around here are Ticket to Ride, Settlers of Catan, Blokus, Dominion, Scotland Yard, Shadows Over Camelot, Heroscape, Star Wars: Epic Duels, and Chess.  Occasionally I have friends get together to play longer games like Fortress America, LOTR RISK, Samauri Swords, Diplomacy, and Pandemic.

I know that you've done stuff in the past with RPGs, and I really never do those, so I can't help you with that.  But if you've got a board/card game that you think is fun, I've got people who would be willing to check it out :)

Nate, I would simply just want to say how glad I am to see you hang around the boards.  You will always be in my prayers, brother.  I met John N at Nats 2011.  He had been my contact/bridge to get news about you especially when you were away for quite some time.

I pray that your game inventions will flourish.

Peace!

Thanks, ReyZen, your prayers are always appreciated.  I should mention, for a LOT of our demo units of our card games, we carry them around in REYZEN POUCHES!!!  Those little pouches are perfect for holding a lot of the "10 Minute War Game Series" from Warcoach Games.  I keep my copies of Bible Wars in them.  :)

Hi

My name is Rex Adams. And my play group consist of me, my wife and our five kids. We love boards games, video games, and card games of all kind. We will be happy to play test a new game. Just say the word.
