Gen Con First Exposure Playtest Hall Application 2019
The First Exposure Playtest Hall (FEPH) is a dedicated event space at Gen Con designed to showcase games that are still in development and not yet available for purchase. Instead of players buying tickets and paying to play (like most events at the convention), the publisher or designer pays a fee to reserve a block of time and attendees can play for free throughout Gen Con. It’s the perfect opportunity to test a game and get feedback from players “in the wild.”

The hall is open and attendees are welcome to walk through and look at games in development. Please note there is no private space available for playtesting – in fact, participants are encouraged to plan for and take advantage of the fact that anyone could walk by and see their game in progress.

The First Exposure Playtest Hall is managed and presented by Double Exposure, Inc., which runs a number of gaming industry events and conventions of its own, including DEXCON, DREAMATION, METATOPIA and the Envoy Program.

Note that applications are processed manually in batches, and it may take 7-10 business days before your application is processed.

Anyone interested in purchasing playtest sessions for their unpublished game must agree to both the FEPH rules and the general convention requirements outlined in the Event Host Policy. An invoice will be sent to the contact when this application has been reviewed and approved, which is due upon receipt. Once your invoice is paid, Double Exposure, Inc. will contact you regarding specifics. If you have further questions about the FEPH, please email
