I am an experienced board game designer that lacked good tools to help organize playtesting and feedback to games I was working on. I used email lists in various forms over the years, it was a lot of work to maintain and I had to limit how many could participate.

I built Board Game Development Club, as a free and open tool to share how board game design happens from the inside. It has lots of nifty features, is ad-free, has an approval system for new members to keep out spammers and the content is not publicly visible. All this means that it serves a real purpose in addition to BGG, BGDF and other useful sites, it is not a PR platform for Kickstarter projects.

Established and new designers, as well as anyone that want to be more involved than joining a Kickstarter campaign, are very welcome to join. Please become a Patron to help cover the costs of running and developing the site. Thank you!
