During the last few weeks, I have been able to collect a bunch of audio recordings from the best game designers in the world. And when I say the best, I mean the best of the best. And that is not an exaggeration. These designers have created the best games in the world, sold thousands or even millions of copies of their games and are responsible for the most successful Kickstarter campaigns out there. Their knowledge is unique and their games are my main source of inspiration. Their experience makes them role models for many other designers like you and me. And all of them have one valuable advice they are going to share with us!

I asked everyone the same question:

What is the one thing you wish you had known before you started your journey as a game designer?
