Get VIP Player badge, get a nice thank you.

If you get a VIP player badge, when you pick up your badge on site you can choose from a variety of games as your VIP player bonus. Note that the quantities we have for each game is limited and first come first serve.

The games are provided to Protospiel as a thank you to VIP players for helping pitch in to cover the costs of the event. Consider getting a VIP player badge for yourself or a friend.

Designers, Add your games to the public list.

Please add your games to the prototype database. Doing so will give players a chance to look for games they want to play ahead of time. After the event when somebody is trying to remember the name of the game they played to contact you, they can find your game on the prototype list.

Having your game in the system also allows players to rate that game and leave feedback after playing it.

To list your games, use this link to get to the prototype page. Scroll to the bottom and look for "List Your Prototype".
