London’s V&A Museum of Childhood is running tabletop-focused exhibition Game Plan: Board Games Rediscovered until the end of April. TTG went along to meet curator Catherine Howell

What titles are on display in the exhibition?

The games range from an Ancient Egyptian game called senet to the app-enhanced XCOM and a lot in between. Classics both old and new, from chess and Ludo to Monopoly and Scrabble, of course feature, but there is also a selection of beautifully illustrated games from the late 18th and early 19th centuries designed to educate the young, and a range of lesser-known 20th-century games that show the influence of world events, conflict, sport, leisure and popular culture on gameplay and design.
