Elizabeth Hargrave | Game Design

I am a board game designer inspired by a love of nature and a desire to play games that break away from tried-and-true themes. My first game, Wingspan, won the 2019 Kennerspiel des Jahres. I have several more games on the way, in various stages with publishers.

When I'm not gaming, you'll often find me hiking, birding, or collecting mushrooms in and around Washington, DC. I have also had a 20+ year career in health policy, helping improve the US government programs that serve elderly and low-income people.

Use the links above to find more information on my games, interviews I've done, and info on other women who design board games.
