The great board game revival: it's the real deal!


Imagine our delight when we found out we’d been given the opportunity to develop an infographic on one of our favourite pastimes – board games! Cue some very enthusiastic research, excited copywriting and spirited design work.

It turns out we’re not the only ones enjoying board games in our spare time. The global board game market is expected to more than double by 2021 and the most recent UK Games Expo was attended by more than 40,000 people!

So, what’s inspiring young people to put down their phones and break out the box of Monopoly? Aside from being good value for money, board games offer a great opportunity to meet up with friends or family and enjoy the time together without the distraction of smartphones or computer screens. There is even a growing number of dedicated board game cafes and bars springing up across our towns and cities. The Thirsty Meeples bar in Oxford, for example, has a library of over 800 different board games for guests to play. We like the sound of that!
