THE LEGEND BEHIND THE BEST BOARD GAMES

Legend has it that the Glass Bead Game is an intellectual play that broadens imagination limits and inspires astonishing ideas. Games represent the knowledge of the ages – music, mathematics, literature, and much more – into cultural values.

The best board games have always been created from an idea that grew into something bigger. The Bead Game Box is something that puts your mind into a creative mode that expands your view on different aspects of life. Games can be played with family, games can be played with kids, games are created by breaking the rules, the only limit is your mind, but our collective intelligence has no limits. "Creativity is intelligence having fun" - Albert Einstein.

With all we know now, the Glass Bead Game still remains a mythical subject. We believe that with the power of all of our creativity we can Discover The Legend Together.

"Word and idea are not born of scientific or logical thinking but of creative language, which means of innumerable languages" [Homo Ludens or "Man the Player" (1938) by Johan Huizingas]
