How to play
Use your imagination! PROTO is a game of creative combination. As a storytelling game, the cards don't tell you exactly what to do, but instead, inspire your strategy and pitch.
Designed for aspiring innovators and entrepreneurs, test your skills with PROTO!
Creativity • Strategy • Storytelling
Pitch your heart out
Players have 1 minute to come up with a startup idea based on the cards they drew. Other players act as investors, deciding to support or not.With each investor they convince, the player gains an additional dice roll. So the better your pitch, the further you move along the impact line.
The Impact Line tracks the number of users the players gained. The winner is the first player to reach 1 million users, crossing each stage of startup.
How quick can you think?
Every startup knows there will be surprises!
In our game, competitors attack each other with crazy startup challenges, forcing pivots, quick thinking and maybe even some inspiration.
Innovation is a skill
The secret to PROTO is mastering business improvisation (a.k.a. innovation). The randomness of the cards force spontaneity in the storytelling and adaptability in strategy.
The winner depends on a combination of creativity, salesmanship and strategy.
