June 10, 2010: The Event That Was Protospiel South
The last weekend of May was Protospiel South. The event was excellent. When you consider it was a first-time convention, run by a newbie organizer who had never attended the original Protospiel, we're looking at Understatement of the Year material. Those who attended to play had fun; those who attended to test their designs had a roomful of thoughtful playtesters.
Our staff saw nearly two dozen games in various stages of development. Sadly, we only had time to play a few of them. But fun was had, feedback was given (and hopefully the designers found our thoughts useful!), and a couple of our designs got some playtesting. It was well worth our time, and we look forward to next year's event -- and the northern Protospiel in July!
