Days Until Protospiel MN 2018
Welcome to Protospiel Minnesota!
Where games come to be played & tested!
What Is A Protospiel Event?
If you are a game designer looking to get professional level feedback from other designers there is no better place to get that feedback. Games in all stages of completion are welcome. You’ll have the opportunity to play test your designs many times through-out the weekend. And the friendships you’ll make will last a lifetime.
If you’re a gamer who likes to try out new things, then Protospiel is also likely the best experience you’ll have. You’ll get to see dozens if not hundreds of new designs in a single weekend. Plus you’ll get to shape them before they hit the shelves of stores or the pages of Kickstarter.
