Wait! That’s a Real Job??? How Come Nobody Told ME?

Hi! I’m Joe Slack.

I’m a professional board game designer, author of the #1 best-selling book The Board Game Designer’s Guide, and have taught game design and development at Wilfrid Laurier University.

I love helping new and aspiring game designers create amazing games!

Through my book, teaching, and working directly with other designers, I’ve helped over 1,300 people get started in game design.

Both versions include the free audio book, and if you purchase directly from my site, the eBook also includes a FREE Guide on The Best Questions to Ask During Playtesting (previously only available to course members)
