Game Designers' Workshop (GDW) was a wargame and role-playing game publisher from 1973 to 1996.[1] Many of their games are now carried by other publishers.[2]

HistoryEdit

Game Designer's Workshop was originally established June 22, 1973.[3] The founding members consisted of Frank Chadwick, Rich Banner, Marc Miller, and Loren Wiseman.[3]

GDW published a new product approximately every twenty-two days for over twenty years.[3]

The company disbanded February 29, 1996 after suffering financial troubles. Designers working for the company attributed a part of GDW's failure as burn-out.[3]
