We first discovered Protospiel at the Milwaukee event in 2015. It's a wonderful weekend long collaboration between game designers - playing each other's games and giving feedback. You don't need to be a game designer to attend, just the desire to play games. Play testers are always needed! Sometimes, publishers attend. That's the trifecta -- getting feedback on your design from all perspectives! We were so inspired by this welcoming community, that we decided to bring a Protospiel event to Chicagoland. It's hard to believe that 2021 will be our 5th year!
This year's event will be at the Holiday Inn and Suites in Bolingbrook, IL.

We decided it was about time we got an official logo and came up with this combination of the Chicago flag, the Bean and of course, Meeples! And when I say we came up with it, I mean our daughter came up with it. Anyway, we're pretty proud of it and you can be sure you'll see it on buttons at Protospiel-Chicago!
