Hand made Dudo from Peru? Oware from Malawi or the latest award winning board games from Asia and Europe?
We sell Modern, Classic, Hand Crafted, Strategy and Educational Board Games and Chess Sets that have thrilled families for thousands of years. Buy Fair Trade Gifts and Ancient Board Games and homeware that take you into the daily lives of Kids from Ghana, Monks from Tibet and the Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt.
The criteria for our games is simply this:
Our Board Games must be Classics.
That is, they must have some enduring quality. We source board games, chess pieces and chess boards that have been around for hundreds of years and games we hope will be around for hundreds more. Our games must also tell a story. A story about people and places.
They must do more than just pass the time, they must take you back (or ahead) in time.
Our Board Games must be Clever.
Simple rules, endless strategy with an emphasis on greater skill with greater play. We look for board games that will educate and be enjoyable to people from all walks of life. Clever Games captivate and focus the whole person. They make excellent aids for teaching children and they draw out imagination, creativity and passion.
Clever Board Games are games that are able to delight people of all ages and abilities.
Our Board Games must be Beautiful.
We favour board games and chess sets that are well made and have some romantic quality about them. Many of our Board Games, Chess and Decor are sourced through Fair Trade and are hand made with hand tools. This means that they will often be unique in design, colour and craftsmanship.
We ask you to take that in to consideration when you view our range.
We seek board games and quality gifts that are well made. Many are hand made by artists in remote places around the world. They are not produced en masse but by hand in small villages without state of the art technology. You need to bare this in mind.
Textures, colours and patterns can change with seasons and with artist. Some of our board games are made tough, rough and ready and will last for years and years. Others are made delicately and are fine tuned over long periods.
Never-the-less, they are beautiful and authentic, both in craftsmanship and in their heritage. Because of the varying talents of our artists and manufacturers, you should not expect all board games, chess or gift ideas to have the same look, feel and finish.
This has not been our aim. Our aim has been to deliver the genuine article - Untouched and uncluttered. We have chosen these board games and Chess Sets mostly because we love them ourselves, we hope you will love them too and share them with your family and friends for generations.
About Fair Trade
So, What is Fair Trade?
In the context of the Fair Trade Movement around the world, Fair Trade is international trade in which producers are paid a fair price. The movement advocates the payment of a higher price to producers as well as social and environmental standards.
Fair Trade means that those who work - particularly in developing countries - are paid properly for their labour. Fair trade's strategic intent is to work with marginalised producers and workers in order to help them move towards economic self-sufficiency and stability. It also aims to allow them to become greater stakeholders in their own organisations, as well as play a wider role in international trade.
Fair Trade proponents include a number of international development aid, social, religious and environmental organisations such as Christian Aid, SERRV International, Oxfam, Amnesty International, Catholic Relief Services, and Caritas International.
Whenever we are dealing with hand made games, we seek out Fair Trade producers - those who are being paid fairly for their work. Fair Trade promotes ethical international trade, it rejects sweat shop labour and encourages you, the customer, to do your bit and use your buying power to strenthen producers who truly do look after their workers in developing countries.
If you have any questions about our board games or would like more information about our producers, please do not hesitate to contact us.
