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.

Great podcast!

BGDL covers a wide range of topics on game design which will help any fledgling designers enter the hobby while also helping seasoned designers hone their craft. Gabe does an excellent job getting a variety of guests to share their experience and advice. The spectrum runs from prolific designers to newer designers giving listeners perspectives from people just like them and from those whose success they aspire to emulate.

Awesome insights

This is a fantastic podcast! I learn something new every time I listen to a new episode. It has inspired me to take some of the ideas I’ve kicked around for a long time and see if I can develop them further.
