Crafter Con is our very own game design convention. Its focus is on education to make you a better game designer. It features a track of seminars and workshops with industry experts. As well as a play testing room where you can work out some kinks with other designers 1 on 1.

This is the list of sessions available at Crafter Con 2018.
What should go on the box? What themes do well and what doesn’t? What’s a good length of play or number of players to sell at your store? Should you write your own rule book? What do retailers expect from Kickstarted games? All these questions and more will be answered.
This was our most popular session last year so we invited Bryan back to offer even more insights.

This session assumes you have already used Component Studio. We're going to start right off with advanced topics.

Whether it's a How To Play video, your Kickstarter video, or a podcast; you want to get your message out there and be heard. But even in a visual medium like videos poor audio is consistently pointed to as the reason people will stop listening to your message.
This session will pick up where Jeff left off last year. He'll be demonstrating what you can get out of software and hardware.
