Family Board Games - an introduction
It was in the early Eighties when we first sough a license to produce a luxury version of a classic family board game, following repeated requested to do what we had done for Chess and Backgammon to such acclaim.
Scrabble® was the first and as soon as this was launched,
requests came flooding in for other classics - the most requested and of obvious was, of course, Monopoly®.
Following quickly on was the then extremely "hot" game of Trivial Pursuit®
and the fireside favourite mystery game of Cluedo® (or Clue® as it is called in The States).
Although not a board game, a few years ago we added the iconic brain teaser that is the Rubik Cube® which is featured in our Off the Bench collection.
Risk® still presents a challenge to us although we have managed to make a luxury leather playing board; the playing pieces required in their great numbers means that the production of these in a precious metal or even pewter, is extremely expensive, so at present this is still on the "drawing board", so to speak.
Monopoly® as you will see from its "home" page and within our "Special Commissions" section of the web-site, lends itself to a wide range of customisation and personalisation from simple "themed" editions to entirely bespoke designs encapsulating one's life's journey.
Family Board Games - Compendia
With our aim to offer our customers "what they want", rather than "what we want to sell them" - we have found over the years that many clients enjoy not just one but a number of games we produce - therefore within our Game Compendia section of the web-site, not only will you find the often twinned Backgammon/Chess combination, but also licensed and tradtional games combined in all manner of ways.
