On the Nerdlab Podcast I often talk about Mastermind Groups and their importance for me on my journey of becoming a better game designer.

If you don’t know what a mastermind group is, here is a short introduction of what we do, what we stand for, and why you should join us:

  • The overall goal of this mastermind group is to grow as a game designer and achieve success. And we strongly believe that we can help each other on this journey.
  • We do brainstorming sessions
  • We playtest our games
  • We share educational content (interesting articles, podcasts, videos, and other insights. Often as a response to a specific design question of someone)
  • We keep each other accountable
  • We support each other (e.g. to build momentum for Kickstarter, social media, etc.)
  • We challenge each other to set strong goals, and more importantly, to accomplish them.
  • We keep things confident in this mastermind group

And the most important thing: We know the games other group members are working on and care about their goals. As a result, you will get feedback that is very different compared to the one you get from huge but anonymous social media groups. Because we are willing to spend more than a few seconds to think about your design challenges.

The typical group size is 6 to 8 people and we will help you to find a group that fits your needs (timezone, frequency, etc.)

If you are interested to join our inclusive group of like-minded game designers please join us here and I will send you everything you need to know:

Together we can shoot for the moon!
