If you’ve never been to a Protospiel event, you owe it to yourself to check one out. Whether you come as a game designer or playtester, it is a weekend jam-packed with great people, good games, and lots of fun. Last weekend was, as far as I know, the biggest such event, Protospiel-Madison. All told, 174 people attended. I was one of them, and so was Fairway. (Read his write-up here.) The following is a rundown of some of the games I played.
Fairway returned from Protospiel Madison having played a bunch of prototype games from a lot of up and coming game designers. Some of these designers were kind enough to let him feature their games in this round up of games.
