If you've ever played a board game then you've probably said "I could make a better game than this." Well, what's stopping you? I believe you could create the next great tabletop game and I'm going to help you!

I'm creating articles about game design from all angles. It's not a set of steps, a plan, or a process, but rather advice to keep in mind as you set off on your game design journey. Learn from not only my experience but from designers and publishers who will periodically be interviewed for the site. 

Additionally, I will be putting out biweekly design podcasts with my co-host Nate Murray from IDW Games. Together we'll cover topics from prototyping to publishing with our own personal spin and insight. We'll also be competing in design games and featuring special guests from the board game industry. 

By contributing to my project you will ensure I have the means to keep creating quality content. I'll be able to spend more time researching game design, track down people to interview, and, of course, create the content. The blog and podcast will always be completely free but, if you like what we're doing, set up a pledge here to keep us in business. 

My current schedule is a weekly article on Tuesday with extra articles coming out as necessary. Podcasts will be biweekly

Thank you!
