Background


Scrabble, Game of Life, Hungry Hungry Hippos, Operation, Battleship, and Yahtzee – it’s almost like you leave the womb knowing how to play them.

 

Mention any of these titles in passing and there’s immediate resonance  - Maybe it was your legendary underdog Battleship sinking on that snowy Thanksgiving. It could have been the moment that you pulled the dictionary out and proved to the neighborhood egghead that “QUIXITORY” was a word—28 points! It could have been that you (the new kid) finally felt at ease with the other kids in the neighborhood. Could have been the frenetic Hippo feeding frenzy with Mom and your sisters after way too much candy. Could have even been when you and an old friend caught up one night and threw Yahtzee dice and watched the sun rise.  

 

Point is that we’ve all had some truly memorable experiences playing face-to-face, above one of these boards. Experiences that transcend beyond the action in the game and into real human bonds and emotion. A whole heck of a lot happens in the drama of playing a game - competition, learning,  those very first emotions of winning and losing, camaraderie, and, most importantly, the connections.

 

Hasbro is asking the Tongal community to tell stories that will reintroduce the experience of these iconic games to our families and circle of friends. Think about what it means to open the box, unfold the board, to hold the pieces in your hands—to remember what the basement smelled like—remember what it was like to look across the board at your sibling, parent, friend, soon to be friend, connect and have fun.

 

The best work will inspire people to drop their iWhatever, log off, unplug and have a Hasbro Game night. It will convince people that the fun, laughter, and the connections that happen playing real games are worth rediscovering.   

And then, walk away with some of the memories that rediscovering these games will provide.
