How many times has the game been tested?
Ahau is a labour of love that has been in development for over two years and has seen many iterations to find its current form. From its first early prototypes, we focused our efforts on getting a playable version of the game on the table, playing it and listening to the feedback of playtesters, then making the changes necessary to create a better version of the game that is deeper, more fun and enjoyable. The game test count is around 60. The game has been extensively playtested and developed jointly by the author and Kicktester, a professional playtesting group.
While designing and developing Ahau – Rulers of Yucatán, it was only natural to have our knowledge double-checked about the ancient Maya history and culture by a widely known and respected professional, to maintain cultural sensitivity and an educational value. Mayanist David S. Anderson, professor of anthropology and archaeology, instructor at the Radford University in Virginia, U.S., agreed to provide valuable insight on several aspects of the game. It was an exciting and humbling experience to work with him and gain a deeper understanding of the Maya culture.
