The BGNlab is partnering up with ProtoTO, Toronto's first board game prototype convention, to help local game designers create more engaging board games.
The event runs starts on Friday, August 19th with a panel of boardgame designers, and continues on through Sunday night. During the day, game designers will have 90 minute slots to demonstrate their games, and playtesters will provide feedback.
During the evening, there will be open gaming, and designers can sign up for a 30-minute slot for "Office Hours with Dr. Nicholson," where Scott Nicholson will provide advice on difficult design challenges in an open discussion environment.
Tickets are limited, and can be purchased at
