I am Yohan Goh, board game designer.
I was born in 1994 in Seoul, South Korea. When I was 14, I played 'Jungle Speed’ and decided to become a board game designer. I kept designing prototypes. And when I graduated a high school, I didn't go to university. Because studying is boring and designing games is always interesting.
2 years later, I went to army. It is obligatory in Korea. I served in military for 21 months. VERY VERY boring time. I wanted to make my time in army something meaningful for me. One day, I found a nice idea when I cleaned a desk with a mop.
And it is 'Fold-it'
‘Fold-it’ is like a beginner’s luck for me. The game was published in many countries and with different languages. It gives me a lot of opportunity as a newbie designer. I finished my military service on August 2016,
and became a full-time game designer.
On February 2018, I traveled Switzerland and France and met great designers like Roberto Fraga and Sébastien Pauchon.
Also there were a lot of publishers, designers and passionate players
in a Festival des Jeux Cannes.
I wanted to have more experience like that. Because all these experience will make me a better designer. So after a few month, I arrived in France again to live in Lyon for 1 year. Since then, I‘ve seen amazing game festivals, publishers designers and players as I expected.
About my games, I try to make original and fun game, often with special materials. Most ideas come from my daily life, as you can see on this website.
Thanks for coming my website. I hope you have a nice time playing my games with friends and family ! And keep watching my new games :)
