More about Toys and Games 

Most of the games we offer are board games (family games). A board game is a game played for fun, to be with friends and family while passing time. Often these are board games like Monopoly, but also some shuffleboard and card games are considered family games. Because a board game is all about ambiance and the right atmosphere, is not played for a prize or bet.

During the rise of the computer area games were put aside and seldom used. Even the classic board games were released in a digital form. We at Retro & Design still it is often more fun to sit and play with a board game together at the table. However, can you handle losing?
