This year TantrumCon will spotlight creators and game designers in some brand news ways! We're teaming up with the organizers of Proto ATL to build a 2-part experience that will feature a Pitch Tune-Up Workshop to help designers prepare for pitching their games. And then a Pitch-A-Thon where they can put that practice into action live!


On Saturday at 10 a.m., make your plans to attend our Pitch Tune-Up Workshop where you'll learn the core principles of creating a strong pitch, techniques for explaining your game concepts clearly and concisely, and how to create intrigue and genuine interest in your game! Bring your existing prototypes or attend just for the free coaching. This workshop will provide valuable feedback from designers and publishers in the industry. The Workshop is FREE but please register in early February when Event Registration opens. Note: Workshop is free with the purchase of a TantrumCon Badge.

Saturday afternoon at 2 p.m. Tantrum House will be hosting a LIVE Pitch-A-Thon for their 35k subscribers on YouTube. The show will give 10 board game designers the opportunity to present their games live and in-person at TantrumCon to be broadcast across the YouTubes. There is a cost of $25 per game pitched at this event. Pitch your game on camera for two minutes, then our hosts (designers, publishers, and media personalities) will have up to three additional minutes to ask questions about your game, helping you to put your best foot forward. Prototypes of all levels of completion are welcome.
