PHIL WALKER-HARDING
Board and card game designer
Sydney, Australia

I design board and card games that are accessible, intuitive and engaging.
I hope my designs can create social spaces for diverse groups of people
to connect and have fun.
After publishing my own games from 2007-2014 I am now focusing
entirely on designing. I have recently enjoyed working with some
great publishers all around the world including Kosmos, Gamewright,
Z-Man Games, Abacusspiele and Wizkids.
