In order for local designers to make excellent games, they need to play their prototypes with gamers. By starting ProtoCON in Utah, we hope designers will be able to find the right playtesters for their game’s development, and that playtesters will have fun taking part in the creation of Utah’s next games. ProtoCON is truly where games begin!
ProtoCON 2020 will take place on January 25th at Venue 6SIX9 in downtown Salt Lake City. Visit our Tabletop Events page to register as a designer or playtester. Designer signups end on November 30th.
Designers will pay $25 for a two-hour playtesting block or $15 for a one-hour block (only six one-hour blocks are currently available). Playtesters attend for free!
We also want to encourage young game designers to participate. Designers under the age of 18 can purchase a one-hour block for $5, and will receive help from experienced designers as needed. However, only six of these special one-hour slots are available.
