Creation Of A New Family Firm For Jenga Inventor!
2nd September 2014 Paul Andrews
Jenga inventor set to launch a new website and online store with her daughter!
Jenga inventor and founder of Oxford Games Ltd Leslie Scott, is to launch a new website and online store on September 26th 2014. The store is the concept of Scott’s daughter, Frederica Scott Vollrath, herself a published game inventor and award winning designer, who recently joined OG as its Development & Marketing manager.
An exclusive, inventor autographed edition of Jenga (£21) will be available, as well as several of the thirty or so other games devised and published by Scott since she launched Jenga in 1983. At present, this includes the perennially popular Ex Libris, the game of first lines and last words, (£14), Anagram the ingenious game of juggling words (£10) and The Hieroglyphs Game, recently republished by the Ashmolean Museum ( £18). And Jungoeira (£16), Frederica’s game, already a hit in Scandinavia, will be available in the UK for the first time.
In addition to these and other OG games that the mother-daughter partnership plan to revive and republish over the coming months, the store will feature a selection of games the designer pair enjoy playing, and secretly wished they had invented themselves.
