Implications - Adding an unexpected element of sophistication to the category, board games are getting a hyper-modernized update, resulting in products that are almost unrecognizable. This artful approach to games broadens the appeal of these products to a more mature audience to accommodate the average gamer, who is in fact in their mid-to-late 30s. This pattern also falls in line with the increasingly popular approach to consumerism where consumers' are looking to acquire fewer, better quality items.
