The Game Designers of North Carolina is a guild of tabletop game designers who, shockingly, reside in North Carolina.

We’ve learned a lot as a group since we started and this podcast is a way to share some of that knowledge. Our goal for the podcast is to present a lot of information pertinent for new designers but hopefully also offer content that any designer can find useful.
