Firewall - the board game - call for testers

A lot of time has passed since my original request for comments post, and now is the time for testing the game with more than our small QA community. I'm using TestFlight, and am recruiting testers through this recruitment link. I'd love to see as many people there as possible trying the game before its launched! (For old times sake, note that this post is reposted from BoardGamesGeek, where I posted a similar introduction post as well.)

Just a reminder for what Firewall is:

- A board game for two players
- Two layer tactics:
-- First by moving your army on the board, taking and blocking the opponent's units
-- Another is by using cards to manipulate the games, making units into "poison" or unable to attack.

I'm trying to rollout the game as quickly as possible now that the main mechanics are finished, but I'm also working behind the scenes to add much needed features such as support for iOS 5 Turn-Based gameplay and single player gameplay..!

Update: Turn-based gaming is already here, see comments below for more info!

A nice introduction is shown in the following video:

I'll ask the Beta Testing Alliance (BTA) group, here on TouchArcade if any of the members are interested.

The BTA is a group of individuals with an interest in beta testing IOS games.

You'll ask them? I don't know - how do I get in contact with them? I couldn't find their group on this forum...

It's a private group (without developers), but I posted a link to this thread for you. Some of our most active members have exams to deal with, so the group is less active than usual currently.

FYI - The TA social groups are here:

Thanks for those joining up!

I'm working hard on making the turn-based game-play available, which will definitely help with the testing!

If you're looking to file any feedback, feel free to use either this thread or the TestFlight feedback..!

Thanks again!
