Jason Schklar covers how Big Huge Games did Rapid Iterative Testing and Evaluation (RITE) user-testing on Catan.
We identified and fixed usability issues with core mechanics (trade, building) and the “learn as you play” tutorial mode in real time while conducting user-testing studies.
The key takeaway is that instead of getting a list of action items a week after the study is done, you end up with a dramatically improved game before the study is even over.
