The Board Game Design Lab came into existence for a very simple reason: I could never find the game design info that I needed. And I assumed I wasn't the only one. I had a lot of very specific questions I wanted to ask game designers and publishers, and as it turns out, they're more than happy to answer those questions when asked. So, I created the BGDL Podcast. I release a weekly show that interviews designers, publishers, and board game insiders on specific topics. We don't waste time talking about games we've played lately or get caught up on pop culture. There are plenty of other podcasts that do those things very well. Instead, the show does a deep dive into subjects that I hope listeners find extremely valuable as they progress through their game design journeys. The show comes out on Wednesdays.

Design Discussion at It's best

Gabe covers so many different areas on the show and has a great array of guests on as well.

Immensely insightful

Great insight on the production and design on side of the hobby. Really interesting advice from people like Lang, Stegmaier, Leacock and loads more. Being new to this it is great to come across such an oasis!!! Thank you Gabe!

The Home Of Insight

If you are doubting any aspect of a game you are developing or simply want to find out how a successful professional has previously dealt with the same situation, then these podcasts will be as invaluable to you as they have been for us.

Hearing about how some of the leading names have taken different approaches to the problems you too are facing, really opens your eyes to the possibilities.

With a wonderful cross section of guests and interview sub themes, combined with a great host asking great questions, these podcasts should become required listening for the any new developer out there.

Keep up the good work!
