An equal world is an enabled world
International Women’s Day was first celebrated in 1911, can you believe it? Well I think it’s about time we celebrated it right here.
If you don’t really know what it’s all about have a read of it over on their website: https://www.internationalwomensday.com/
To celebrate I wanted to share with you some of the fabulous games that women have designed:
- The early version of what became Monopoly was “The Landlords Game” designed by Elizabeth Magie
- Elizabeth Hargrave – Designer of the beautiful game that is “Wingspan”
- Eldritch Horror – Designed by Nikki Valens, along with Corey Konieczka
- One of our favourites “Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective” One of the designers was Suzanne Goldberg, along with Raymond Edwards and Gary Grady
- Ok, Dixit wasn’t made by a woman but the Illustrator (a very important part wouldn't you agree?) is: Marie Cardouat
- Co-designer of Space Cadets: Sydney Englestein
- Rena Nathanson along with her father created the cool little game “Bananagrams”
So in honour of international Women’s Day we could just offer a discount on the games that have had input by these and other women but I think it's far better to celebrate in EQUAL style: So today we are offering 10% off across our website... I am a woman after all and as this is my site, it counts...
Let's also have a quick look at a couple of notable females I love in games.. before you say I missed someone I did say a couple ;)
One last thing, I want to end with a Thanks: Thank you to all the women in past and present day who are truly trying to make a difference or who have made a difference. We also need to thank all the men out there doing the same 😊
