Humans of Gaming 186 | Gabe Barrett of Board Game Design Lab on Cam Newton, Board Games, and International Ministries.


About This Episode

Gabe Barrett has some stories to tell. Before he founded the Board Game Design Lab podcast, he played college football and didn’t think much of Cam Newton on his first day. He also lives in Honduras most of the year when he isn’t in Atlanta and doing missions work in both. His family was also fell afoul of the moral failings of church leadership that cost them their church family. Despite this sad happening, this paved the path for him to travel to Honduras where he met his wife and started his family. It is from these locations that he founded the Board Game Design Lab where the philosophy is the love that a designer can bring friends and families together around a sacred place: the table.
