About Us

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!

We have two unique events! ProtoCON and ProtoCON Online!

ProtoCON is an in person event that takes place the last week in January each year, while ProtoCON Online is a less structured online event that occurs several time each year. Both events are geared toward unpublished board games/card games of all stages!
