Looking to play and preview new games?

Our ashcans are works-in-progress that give you a chance to play games before they’re completely finished. We love the feedback we get from our fans, and getting such a diverse group of people to play and run these games helps make them even better.

This is also an opportunity for Magpie Games to work with new creators, mentoring them through the process Magpie uses to create games and giving them a taste of what it’s like to publish your own work.

Wondering what “Ashcan” means? The term ashcan comes from the comic industry, when publishers would produce editions containing unlettered stories and unfinished art that weren’t intended for wide circulation.
