Gabe Barrett from Board Game Design Lab Writes the Foreword for “WorldsXP: A Kit Master’s Guide to Gameful Learning”


I am absolutely honored to have Gabe Barrett, founder of Board Game Design Lab and English teacher write the foreword for our book, “WorldsXP: A Kit Master’s Guide for Gameful Learning.” He has been a tremendous support and wonderful mentor as we developed WorldsXP and geared up for our Kickstarter launch. Read the foreword below.


I met Dustin through his podcast a little over a year ago. I had been working on various gamification projects for my classroom, and I stumbled upon his show while doing research to see how other people were approaching their own class games. I listened to several episodes and really enjoyed the content. It was obvious that Dustin truly cared about helping people learn and that he was passionate about teaching through games.

Shortly thereafter, I was able to join Dustin for an episode of his show to talk about combining a fantasy RPG with class assignments, and we’ve been friends ever since.

Since then, he’s joined me on my own podcast, the Board Game Design Lab, to discuss the ins and outs of using games to help students learn. The episode has been downloaded thousands of times by people trying to crack the code on learning-based game design.

Unfortunately, the way we do school hasn’t changed much in quite some time, but luckily, there are people like Dustin blazing a trail for how to do things differently. Game-based learning breaks up the monotony that so easily sets in over the course of a school year, and when it’s done well, it actually gets kids to want to show up to your class.

Dustin and I both believe that games are one of the best ways to get students to engage with information, and it does wonders in helping them retain it. And I’m super impressed with everything Dustin has done with WorldsXP.

I firmly believe that WorldsXP is going to become a go-to resource for teachers who want to inject fun into their classrooms while also promoting learning. It’s a plug-and-play system that will have you up and running in no time, and it’ll have your students asking when they can play again.

Whether you’re in a public school, private school, or teaching your kids at home, I think you’ll find WorldsXP to be a valuable tool in helping your students enjoy the subject you’re teaching, and they might not even realize they’re learning at the same time.

So, have fun with WorldsXP. I know it’ll help you turn your classroom into an environment full of fun and imagination to go along with everything you teach.
