Falltasticon brings together game designers, publishers, artists, and game enthusiasts for a weekend of playtesting, networking, and having fun! We’ve got 6,000sq/ft of prototype gaming taking over Elm City Games’ historic building right in downtown New Haven. Our open gaming style schedule means playtesting can happen whenever, wherever, and with whoever throughout the weekend. But don’t worry if you don’t know anyone, we’ll be working hard to connect players with designers. We’ll also have raffles, give aways, and other fun stuff throughout the weekend.

Designers – Show off your prototypes and get feedback from other designers & industry professionals along with a wide variety of players. Network and talk theory, stay up late and get inspired, crush through invaluable playtests and make your game shine!

Players – Check out rad unreleased games that need your feedback and opinions! Meet designers, learn more about how games are made, and get to be a part of the creative process. Even if you’ve never playtested anything before, your feedback is a crucial part of game design and development. Come play with us!


We will be going strong from 5pm until at least midnight on Friday.

10am until at least midnight on Saturday.

10am until 8pm on Sunday.
