Georgian and Victorian Board Games

Georgian and Victorian Games: The Liman Collection showcases 60 games that were made for both instruction and delight, and reflects on a transatlantic market that flourished into and throughout the nineteenth century. Although games were often printed on linen or board instead of delicate paper, many fell apart thanks to enthusiastic use. But those that survived open a window onto the time period in which they were created, reflecting its social and moral priorities as well as every educational subject. The games follow the course of the Industrial Revolution and the expansion of the British empire, alongside changing attitudes toward childhood and education.
