Make no mistake by thinking that board games are limited to Chess, Checkers, Monopoly, Risk, and other games that have been part of our childhood. In the last 20 years, board games have evolved more than ever: more than 1.000 new games have been published annually, which are increasingly more challenging, engaging, interactive and innovative than the traditional board games.

Presently, there are over 57.000 different games! The diversity of game components, styles, themes and mechanics is staggering. Just like in cinema or literature, there will always be suitable games to each personal taste: some with simple rules, short play time and with emphasis on pure fun; others with a more elaborate and strategic character, offering greater challenges to the players.

We challenge you to rediscover the pleasure for board games that was probably asleep since your childhood... Come play with us!

Board games have been present throughout human history, providing a ludic, cultural and social activity for people of all ages (the myth that games are an activity for children belongs to the past: although there are games suitable for children, the vast majority of games are intended for mature audiences).

Ludic, because playing is synonymous of having fun; a game wouldn't be a game if this wasn't true. Board games are therefore an immense source of entertainment, as each game offers a different experience every time. Players are transported to the world built by the game, motivatated to do their best to achieve those goals. Note that in this type of games there is no real money involved, playing is done solely for the pleasure of playing.

Cultural, because they allow mental learning and development while playing. Games can be interesting, challenging and educational, stimulating thinking and decision making. Furthermore, they promote the growth of general culture, since we can get to know a little more about history, geography, economy, animals, mythology, sports, environment, among many other topics.

Social, because playing a board game is an act of confraternization between people around a table. The games require the interaction of the players, which provides socialization and allows them to get to know each other or to strengthen the existing relationships between them. The most important should be the people who you play with and the time spent together, never the final outcome of the game.
