Game Plan: Board Games Rediscovered! 13 Apr - 23 Jun 2019

Throw the dice and enter a colourful and creative world of board games in this exhibition from the Victoria and Albert Museum of Childhood, London.

Are you a Snakes and Ladders Superstar? A Chess Champion? A Monopoly Master?

Game Plan celebrates the joy, excitement (and occasional frustration) of playing board games. This free exhibition includes some of the most iconic, enthralling and visually striking games from the V&A’s outstanding collection.

Game Plan features games from around the world, and also explores the important role of design. On display in the exhibition are current family favourites such as Cluedo and Trivial Pursuit, as well as traditional games like chess. The exhibition will also look at historical board games and beautifully designed games from the 18th and 19th centuries. Selected games are highlighted with a more detailed look at their history and influence. An early design of Monopoly before it was commercially mass produced will be one of the many fascinating exhibits on show.

While you’re here, you can drop into our Games Den for some relaxed gaming together with your friends or family.

'GAME PLAN' is an exhibition organised by the V&A Museum of Childhood, London.
