Revisited Recreation

Board games are once again capturing consumer attention

Implications - There's no denying the proliferation of virtual and electronic games, but some consumers are beginning to prefer the retro version of this pastime. Today's board games -- often revamped renditions of traditional board games or reinterpreted electronic games -- provide a simplistic appeal as well as a nostalgic quality by allowing consumers a reversion back to old-school entertainment, tickling the memories of parents and the curiosities of kids.
