IGA is proud to sponsor Expedition Prototype 2017!

IGA is proud to be an official sponsor of Expedition Prototype 2017, formerly known as Prototype Con. Expedition Prototype is a prototype/playtesting only convention held in February in Kissimmee, FL, and organized by some of the same stellar individuals that run Dice Tower Con.


Expedition Prototype is planning the following events that you can be a part of:



  • A series of design and publishing workshops and publisher interviews

  • Play-to-wins and raffles

  • Playtesting and more playtesting!


Here’s how members can get involved:



  1. Buy a ticket.

  2. If you want to playtest your game at the event, register your game now. Spots are limited, and they’re cheaper before January 15, so hurry up and register.

  3. If you can’t make the event, you can register your game for their playtest library. Spots are limited for this as well. IGA will be happy to help support any member whose game is in the library with player assistance during the event. If IGA already has a copy of the game, we will bring it to the event so you don’t have to send an additional copy. If you’re sending them a copy, we can take it after the show for future demos if you like.

  4. Come by our info table and hang out with us!


Local Minions, we’d love to see you at the event too! Loot Points are available for playtesting games at the show! If you file at least 8 hours’ worth of IGA playtest reports, we’ll  reimburse your $20 badge!


IGA is going to Dice Tower Con!


IGA is thrilled to announce that we’ve upgraded our presence at Dice Tower Con, here in our backyard in Orlando, FL. IGA’s now secured not only exhibitor/vendor status, but an ENTIRE ROOM for demos, tournaments and events! There’s only four of these rooms available at Dice Tower 2017, and one of them is going to be filled with YOUR games!



 



If you’re a member that wants to run events in our room, either in person or with us running them on your behalf, please let your IGA account rep know right away. If you’re a Minion who wants to work the show with us, let the minion coordinator know!
