Luxury Games for Christmas and All year round

Christmas is the best time to get a luxury board game out and impress your friends and family, as well as... getting competitive!

While some family members are prohibited from games that are certain, why not try to get everyone involved in a family game of Monopoly?

In a poll last year, Monopoly was voted Britain's favourite Christmas game.

This British game we love and know was, actually, was originally place in America. But it has been made popular due to our well-known London landmarks. In World War II, the British Secret Service even set up fake charities to get the game using the board to hide real cash, maps and compasses.


In 1938, the game was created by American architect Alfred Mosher Butts as a variation on an earlier word game he invented called Lexiko. James Brunot subsequently switched to name to the name we now know and adore, "Scrabble", a genuine word which means "to scrape frantically". In 1949, Brunot and his family made that year, but sets 2,400 lost money.

According to legend, Scrabble's big break came in 1952 when Jack Straus, president of Macy's New York , played with the game on holiday. Upon returning from vacation, he was surprised to find that his shop did not carry the game. He put a large order and within a year, "everyone had to have one." Now roughly one-third of American homes have a Scrabble set, so creating one the most popular board games ever.



Challenge each other this Christmas with a game of Chess Sets

Chess is believed to have originated during the Gupta empire in Eastern India, where its early form in the 6th century was known as Chaturanga.

The game reached Russia and Western Europe by at least three courses, the first being in the 9th century. By the year 1000 it'd spread throughout Europe. Introduced into the Iberian Peninsula by the Moors in the 10th century, it was described in a famous 13th century manuscript covering shatranj (Arabic chess), backgammon, and dice. Another theory claims that chess originated from the game xiangqi (Chinese chess) or among its predecessors, although it has been contested.
