Designer Duos

From married couples to friends turned collaborators, designer duos tell us how they first started making games together and why two heads are often better than one

IN TWO MINDS

While many games are designed from the ground up by a single individual, the iterative process of board game design can be perfectly suited to successful collaborations between friends, colleagues and even married couples. After all, one of the biggest pioneers in modern board game design, Wolfgang Kramer, produced many of his best-known games alongside other co-designers, including frequent partner Michael Kiesling.

Co-designer credits are not uncommon in board game design, but frequent collaborators and business partners represent a unique and special partnership. In the spirit of Valentine’s Day we’ve highlighted several prominent partnerships joined by their love of creating games.
