Playcrafting is a program that provides support and education to aspiring game makers. This year, the organization will be hosting the first ever PLAY NYC, a dedicated games convention. While Playcrafting mainly focuses on video games, they have helped local board game designers create, playtest, and bring attention to their games.
“We’re going to finally give New York the dedicated games convention it deserves.” – Dan Butchko, Playcrafting CEO & Founder (via TechRaptor)
PLAY NYC will have 3 floors of games at Terminal 5 in Manhattan. The convention will feature latest releases from large studios and indie designers alike. Early-bird General admission will be $20 a day and Devs and Pros tickets, which include access to two days of panels, will start at $50 for both days. The convention will run from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m Aug. 19 and Aug. 20. You can learn more at PLAY-NYC.com
