Over the past few years, middle school teacher Luke Laurie has become one of the most sought after board game designers in the industry. And he did it in his spare time.
This week we dive into Luke’s journey to become an indie board game designer, how he neglects what doesn’t matter to focus on what does, and we look at his approach to making work that truly stands out.
If you have any interest in pursuing your own passion, this episode is for you.
And I highly recommend checking out Luke’s games. Dwellings of Eldervale and Energy Empire are already two of my all-time favorites, but after our conversation I’m even more excited to check out Whistle Mountain and Cryo.
