You have been a Demon Lorde for hundreds, thousands of years. The armies of men and mage alike have trembled before you, begging for mercy. You remember those days quite fondly. As much fun as you’re having spending time with your new young Master and in their lovely coffee shop, you had no idea how difficult being a Devil Butler would be! (Not that you would ever let anyone know you were having a hard time!)

Can you help your young master’s dreams come true and make this the best coffee shop ever? Or will your past catch up with you and wreak havoc?

I will email everyone a week ahead to confirm attendance.

Hey Jammi!

I would love to playtest this game with you. However my work at summer camp in Niigata starts on July 14th. Would it be possible to playtest the game and give feedback?

Let me know!

Hi Ben! Absolutely! I am still working on the new version of the game (I’m tweaking the moves and Playbooks, adding a couple of Playbooks) but when I’m done I’d be happy to send over the game to you :heart::heart::heart:

Thanks Jammi!

That would be fantastic!! In high school I cosplayed Sebastian at NY Comicon and would love to embody a character like that again. Great insight that the genre is nearly perfect for tabletops. :heart:

Very cool! Sebastian is so much fun and I just wanted to see an entire cast of Demon Butlers haha, the playbooks are inspired by D&D Demons even!

When I have a playtest kit ready I’ll reach out :heart::heart::heart:

While I would be a terrible person to help you playtest this :slight_smile: It sounds so interesting, I hope you make the recordings public! Thanks and good luck,
