University Games was founded by Bob Moog and Cris Lehman. Bob and Cris always loved playing games with their families, and grew up thinking that fun and learning were a part of everyday life. As adults, they recognized a developing niche in social interaction and learning games for adults and children, and that is how University Games began on April 1, 1985.
The company philosophy has always been to offer games that encourage social interaction and imagination through gameplay, with learning sprinkled in to season the game. The first product released was Murder Mystery Party, which generated $385,000 in 1985. In 1987, Bob co-invented 20 Questions, which like the Murder Mystery Party series, has been a mainstay of the University Games line for the past 31 years.
In 1991, University Games created the Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? board game, which was based on the popular children's television show. Ever since, University Games has been creating educational board games designed so that players won't notice how much they are learning while they have fun! University Games has an in-house product development team that has made it the leading original game producer in the industry. With games like Kids on Stage, Totally Gross, Super Why ABC, and Scavenger Hunt for Kids, it is no wonder adults and children have come to expect great educational and entertaining products from University Games.
They have so many games that I can't list them all, but as you can see from the photo, they are targeted just for them.
Although, University Games has so much more than just kids games. They have party games, family games, card games, and even domino games. So be sure to check them out, and give the gift of fun this year!
University Games has been generous enough to give one of my readers 2 of the games shown above: The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Kids on Stage.
