About Us

We are an inclusive group of tabletop game designers in North Carolina co-operating to improve our work, promote our products, and welcome new game designers to the industry. We collaborate to playtest and critique tabletop game designs, offer advice to game designers, and render assistance to members in finding publishers for their designs. Our meeting schedule can be found on our events page.

All designs published by members can be found in the Game Designers of North Carolina family on BGG. We also have a podcast and encourage discussion in our podcast guild page on BGG.

You can follow us on Twitter @GDofNC and on Facebook.
