Hi, my name is Joe Slack.
I've been designing board games since 2014 and I have helped over 1,300 game designers just like you through:
In the past year alone I have:
Some people are amazing game designers.
Some people are amazing teachers.
Learn from someone who is recognized as both.
I've helped many other designers turn good games into great games and I want to help you.
Here are just some of the publishers I have connections to:
“Without a doubt, if I had read Joe’s book back in 1989, it would have accelerated my progress and potential as a game designer by decades.” Jamey Stegmaier Designer of Scythe, one of the top 10 board games of all time
You don't need to read hundreds of blogs or attend every game design panel session at all the big Cons.
You just need clarity.
Once you understand the process of designing a game the right way, you'll see that it doesn't have to be that hard.
Here's what you'll experience in The Board Game Design Course:
When you join The Board Game Design Course you'll get:
“The course really helped me understand the process involved in designing a board game. Joe is a great instructor. He is able to ask probing questions that help to draw out answers so he can assist you with your game design.” David Neal, Board Game Design Course student
“In board game design, there's a limit to how much you can learn just from reading books and blogs; Joe has a firm grasp on industry trends, important networks to follow, and knows what it takes to get a game published.”
