Family Game Night – Priceless! From Card Games to Board Games, also even puzzles and math based, and learning based themes. Challenging the Mind, and building Bonds with your Loved Ones, Friends, and making new friends. There are so many classics, and so many NEW ones all the time. Chess and Checkers are two of my favorite Classics. It seems that Strategy and Mind Games are somewhat being forgotten, therefore it is important you do not let your kids go without the very things that make us think beyond what is right in front of us.
Toys and Games… that is where the Family can really bond (and you can not buy that anywhere). We get enough Multimedia and Electronic stimulation… isn’t it time we took a break – and enjoyed a good old game or two, maybe three? Who is up for a game of Battleship? Connect Four? Chutes and Ladders? (Just a few of my personal favorites. I get a kick out of beating my kids with these intense games of strategy.
PICTIONARY? Clue? (Who doesn’t enjoy a quick game of Clue?) TWISTER? Twister is a classic, and one that always leads to laughter. Toys and Games are about enjoying life, and disconnecting with a classic is probably needed more time than ever in today’s digital world. Interaction is a great thing and lets’ interact.

The First Board Game
Most people don’t realize board games are actually pre-historic, meaning we had board games before we had written a language. So, what was the very first game?. Dice! A piece that’s essential in most board games today was the basis of humanity’s oldest games.
The early original dice games were created by painting a single side of flat sticks. These sticks would be tossed in unison and the amounted of painted sides showing, would be your “roll”. Mesopotamian dice were made from a variation of materials, including carved knuckle bones, wood, painted stones, and turtle shells.
The Landlord’s Game
(1903) Have you ever heard of The Landlord’s Game? Invented by Lizzie Magie, one of America’s very first board game designers. The game board consisted of a square track and with a row of properties around the outside that players could buy. The game board had four railroads, two utilities, a jail, and a corner named “Labor Upon Mother Earth Produces Wages,” which earned players $100 each time they passed it… Sound familiar?
Magie had invented and patented The Landlord’s Game in 1904 and also designed the game to be a practical demonstration of land grabbing and with all its usual outcomes and consequences. She based the game on the economic principles of Georgism, a system proposed by Henry George, with the object of demonstrating how rents enrich property owners and also impoverish tenants.
In 1935 Magie sold her patent for The Landlord’s Game to Parker Brothers, which is now what we know as Monopoly. This game launched Parker Brothers to a massive success was originally rejected by them.
After their success with Monopoly, They went on to produce Risk and Sorry, Trivial Pursuit, and more.
Lizzie Magie sold her original patent of the original game for $500.
Board Gaming Becomes a Yearly World Wide Event
Now we finally circle back around to one of the biggest catalysts for the recent explosion in board gaming popularity, TableTop. A web series about board games was created by Wil Wheaton and Felicia Day. In each episode, Wil Wheaton plays board games with popular TV and web personalities.
Table Top on Television
TableTop started out as a show on the Geek & Sundry Youtube Channel and quickly became its most popular series. Due to the original concept for Tabletop was that of Wil Wheaton (who’s an avid boardgamer) would review board games. However, Wil proposed that the best way to show how great games are, is to play them. And, based off their success, they nailed it.
As a result, Tabletop had grown to such a point that by the third season, they put up a crowdfunding campaign in an effort to become independent. Their target was $500,000 and they nearly triple that. Therefore they recently announced they would use the extra proceeds to launch a similar web series titled “Titan’s Grave: The Ashes of Vulcan”.
Titan’s Grave, a multi-episode show focused on a single role-playing board game will be featured. Geek & Sundry also has teamed up with Green Ronin Publishing (creators of several RPG titles, including Dragon Age) to create a new game engine that they will be using to power their RPG game.
TableTop has become a resonating force in the gaming community. They focus on introducing gaming to new people that still have a misguided view of board gaming. A lot of people still think of Monopoly and Risk when they think of board games. Table Top’s popularity has started to shift this. The show caused board games featured to skyrocket in sales. Tsuro was featured on the show, the publisher exhausted all stock reserves. The demand was so high. The game was unavailable in Europe for a period of time while production tried to cope with US demand. Game manufacturers have dubbed this “The Wheaton Effect”.
A popular Youtube channel also has to do with a yearly worldwide event? In 2013 Wil and Felicia held International Tabletop Day and they played several games live with folks from previous episodes. The next year, the event had spiraled into a worldwide celebration and with events in over 80 countries. A lot of game stores from all over the world are announcing various events and promotions for their participation. Because of this, Board gaming has officially become a worldwide holiday.
