Protospiel South 2015
May 23rd and 24th (With an informal meetup on the 22nd.)
2015 would be Protospiel South's sixth consecutive year. Every past year, Protospiel South has taken place on Memorial Day Weekend. The organizers of BGG Con have decided to hold BGG FAM on Memorial Day Weekend, which conflicts with Protospiel South. I am tremendously loathe to change Protospiel South's date (for many reasons), so I have to decide whether to change the date, run Protospiel South anyway, or stop running the convention. I'm exploring and assessing options and will post an update (decision) here by Monday, April 6th at 8 PM. Thanks!
What's Protospiel South All About?
In the spirit of Protospiel, Protospiel South is a gathering for amateur and established game designers to test and promote nearly-finished game prototypes. The atmosphere is casual, yet everyone is serious about their goals and dreams of publishing games.
Looking for more? You can learn more about Protospiel South and discuss Protospiel South with the organizers and other people.
2015-03-31: Note - The information below is from last year. I'm keeping it here for possible future reference.
2014-03-15: This year, I'm taking what worked from last year's "pay what you wish" format, and fixing what didn't work. Here's the deal:
If you pre-register, you can pay any non-zero amount you wish to. All pre-registered people will get a personalized laser-cut name badge (ooooh!). If you pay at least $35, you're automagically part of the meal plan (Breakfast, lunch, and dinner on Saturday and Sunday.). If you pay at the door, it'll be $30 per day (Saturday and Sunday – Friday is $5.) or $50 for the weekend. (Note: If you're a family and you're just showing up for a few hours, it's pay-what-you-wish.) If you don't pre-register and you want to participate in the meal plan, it's $5 for breakfast and $10 for lunch or dinner.
