If you want to design your own games, this podcast is for you. We will dive deep into topics like development tools, game mechanics, card design, marketing and discuss everything you need to know to start your first Kickstarter campaign.



To analyse these topics, we will be looking at existing card games and board games and take a deeper look at their core mechanics in order to use them as inspiration for our own games. Everything we discuss will be applied to a fantasy adventure card game we develop in parallel to the podcast.



The goal of this podcast is to provide you with everything you need to know about the skills and tools as a game designer.

Great Resource

Solid podcast for discussions on a variety of game design topics. It’s very useful to listen to if you’re feeling stuck in your own game designs or want to level up your design skills & abilities.

Thoughtful, organized, and insightful

I listen to a lot of game design podcasts and honestly Nerdlab is in my top three favorites. Subject matters are clear and concise with explicit examples. There is a recurring structure that helps drive the podcast along in an engaging and intuitive manner. Lastly, listening to the podcasts is inspiring to a game designer such as myself. After listening to the episode about goal setting I literally sat down and wrote concrete design goals for my current game and the one I’m working on next.

Keep up the good work!
