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.

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.

Extremely helpful

Listening to Gabe and those he interviews is extremely helpful. This should be mandatory listening for anyone who is in the board game design or publishing industry. I love how he focuses on a specific topic every episode. Hard to find this good of information in the board game industry that dives deep on specific subjects.
