How Board Games Get Made with Adam Hill | Episode 191

Board Game Design, Building Community, and Our Desire to Belong

In a surprise turn of events, we managed to get Adam Hill (co-creator of Godspeed) on the show to discuss the behind-the-scenes of tabletop game creation. We also discuss his latest game, publishing company, and what makes tabletop games perfect for outreach.

Topic (53:00)

Adam Hill is a pastor but he is also a board game designer. Surprisingly enough, board games can be an effective tool for fostering community and reaching people where they’re at.
