Are you a game designer? Would you like to hone your craft by talking with some of the best in the industry about how games are made? Then the Boardgame Designer’s Retreat, presented by Tabletop Network, is the best place to go. Being held near Salt Lake City, you can go and hear talks by designers such as Rob Daviau, Ryan Laukat, Tom Lehmann, and many more. Tickets are being sold through Kickstarter
From the campaign:
The Tabletop Network is an annual gathering of tabletop game designers, dedicated to honing the craft of game design. Presentations are given each day by leading designers on specific topics such as engagement, balance, and emerging trends. While prototypes and playtesting are important, Tabletop Network takes a break from those to focus on sharing and learning together.
Hosted in the breathtaking Snowbird resort in the mountains of Salt Lake City, Utah, attendees can learn and rejuvenate while networking and gaming with fellow designers.
Through collaboration and the sharing of institutional knowledge and best practices, attendees will leave the conference with new tools in their toolkit to help them design tomorrow’s best games.
