Screening of Made for Play: Board Games & Modern Industry

Jettingen Germany is home to Ludo Fact, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of board and card games.

This documentary shows how a board game makes the leap from an idea to your table. You’ll see every aspect of the manufacturing process: the technology and machines, the many detailed steps, and the hundreds of people that are involved in the production of a single game.

Mostly, we hope the film gives you a greater appreciation of the time, effort and investment that goes into every quality board game that makes it to the marketplace and your home. The business of fun requires a lot of hard work!
