Counter Cultures: The Secret Lives of Games
June 11, 2010-April 2011
The San Diego Museum of Man is getting serious about playing. "Counter Cultures: The Secret Lives of Games", funded in part by the Dr. Seuss Fund at the San Diego Foundation, features board, tile, and card games from around the world. Visitors of all ages can reminisce over old classics, marvel at games from around the world, and become a game piece themselves on the Counter Cultures game board. The players lounge also allows visitors to create their own games or play their favorites with friends and family.
Curator Dr. Wayne Saunders draws upon his own collection of more than 1,400 games to provide an engaging overview of the rich cultural history of games. "It's the little things that make life worth living," says Saunders. "For some, it's games."
