Hello from a rookie game designer

Hi everyone!

I am an aspiring game designer located in Madison, WI. I have been a "gamer" of different sorts all my life and have started playing board games more frequently over the past year or so.

For the past few months, I have been delving into board game design and have spent the majority of my time on a concept based on thru-hiking.

Are there any other board game designers around Madison, WI on BGDF? I'd love to meet up to play and discuss games.

Nice to meet you all,

Hello and Welcome, Matt!

Thru-hiking is a fascinating topic, and although I've seen a couple videogames with the same or similar theme (more commonly with mountain climbing, actually), I've yet to see more thru-hiking games beyond the AT Challenge:

I am a bicyclist and I do my own long-distance, unsupported ride each year, and I've also been tinkering with a bicycling game along the same vein.

In any case, I'm wishing you the best of success with your game ideas, Matt! Have fun with the process. :)

Thanks, let-off studios

Thank you for the welcome and feedback! I'll definitely have to check out the AT Challenge.

Good luck with your games - a bicycling theme would be very cool!
