Nearly two and a half years have passed since we hosted the first open-to-the-public Protospiel Online convention. We're starting to see some of the games presented at our earlier events make it to market -- plus some other fun news from around the community, so we've created this newsletter as a way to keep everyone in the loop.
Where's My Ride Now on Kickstarter!
David Kessler brought Where's My Ride to Protospiel Online back in July of 2021, and it made the rounds as a fun, everyone-is-exhausted, last-playtest-of-the-night, lots-of-people-can-play-at-once kinda game.
Here's a look at an early version of the game's development:
The Where's My Ride? Kickstarter campaign through Slugfest Games recently passed its $10,000 funding goal and remains open to new backers through Thursday, December 8, 2022 8:00 PM EST.
You can try the game yourself for free through the recently released Screentop.gg mod! This platform works in-browser and is currently free for all players, so it will be an easy one to invite non- or casual gamer friends to try.

We can't wait to see this one out in the wild when it delivers in Q4 of 2023!
