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 exhibition will include some of the most iconic, enthralling and visually striking games from the V&A’s outstanding national collection of board games. Visitors can enjoy hands-on interactives and see more than 100 objects, featuring games from around the world, exploring the important role of design. Throughout the exhibition, selected games of special interest are highlighted with more detailed information on their history and influence.
New Lanark are delighted that GAME PLAN: Board Games Rediscovered will be the third exhibition hosted in the redeveloped Exhibition Gallery in 2018.
