What is a Game Design Fool?

Hi, I'm Chris Stone, and I'm a Game Design Fool!  What is a Game Design Fool?  It's anyone who loves tabletop games of any kind, and is involved in or fascinated by the process of creating them.  What kinds of people might be Game Design Fools?  Here are just a few examples:

  • Board game designers: published, not-yet-published, hobby or amateur

  • RPG game designers

  • Indy tabletop game publishers

  • Employees or principals of major tabletop game publishers

  • Game manufacturer reps or customers

  • Board game prototyping company reps or customers

  • PLAYERS! who are curious to look behind the curtain of game design

  • Content creators who review or discuss tabletop games

  • Crowdfunding platform reps, creators, or backers

  • Artists who have worked or want to work in the tabletop space

  • And so many more!

These are just a few examples of the kinds of people who can be Game Design Fools!
