February 21, 2010: ProtoSpiel South

Game conventions come in many different types. Some focus on boardgames in an open gaming environment, like BoardgamegeekCon. Some bring big name publishers together with special events, like Gen Con. Some mix traditional games with digital, like PAX.

And some bring playtesters together with game designers, like ProtoSpiel. For events like these, there are no Munchkin tournaments, no RPG sessions, no seminar tracks, and no special guest signings.

We've attended ProtoSpiel the past couple of years, and enjoyed it, both as playtesters and as designers. Now, we'll have one even closer to home: ProtoSpiel South will be held May 28-30 here in Austin.

If you've got a game design you'd like fresh eyes to evaluate honestly, or you love looking at gaming works-in-progress, this is the event for you! We'll be there with whichever prototypes we've got at the playtest stage, and we'll be looking forward to the new designs others have in store. After all, ProtoSpiel is where we found Nanuk . . .
