Game Plan: Board Games Rediscovered

snakes and ladders 910x548

Are you a Scrabble Champion? A wannabee Chess grandmaster? Or a Monopoly megalomaniac? Game Plan: Board Games Rediscovered will celebrate the joy, excitement and occasional frustration of playing board games. This will exhibition include some of the most iconic, enthralling and visually striking games from the V&A’s outstanding national collection of board games. Alongside current family favourites such as Cluedo and Trivial Pursuit, and traditional games like chess, the exhibition will look at historical board games including The Game of the Goose and other beautifully designed games from the 18th and 19th centuries.

Hands-on interactives and the opportunity to become part of one big interactive game will direct visitors around the exhibition, and invite them to think about game playing experiences and what sort of player they are.

The exhibition is available for tour, with limited slots still available for late 2019 to mid 2020 and early 2021. It requires a space of 100-200 m2.
