Description Edit | History

Jeffrey D. Allers has played and designed games since he was a child. While living in Berlin in 2001, he was introduced to modern German board games and, a few years later, joined a gaming group where published designers regularly tested their prototypes. Soon after, he was bringing his own ideas to the group, and has had his games published in Europe and America since 2008.

In 2005, he also began writing a series of online articles titled "Postcards From Berlin," first on GameWire, then BoardgameNews and now, the Opinionated Gamers. He enjoys writing about game design and his experiences as an American expatriate living in the midst of German boardgame culture.

His group of Berlin game designers now meet regularly in the Spielwiese gaming cafe, and he writes about his experiences there and the design process for his group's games on his blog, Berlin Game Design. He has also taught game design workshops in schools and has spoken on the topic as a guest lecturer at Berlin's Technical University.
