BELOIT, Wis.— We have an award winner in the house! The Game of THINGS…® inventing trio has won a coveted TAGIE (Toy & Game Inventor) Award for Excellence in Game Design, and we couldn’t be more thrilled!

The Game of THINGS… is a hilarious party game that has sold over 1.5 million copies. It’s the comedic creation of Tom Quinn, his brother Ted and their friend Mark Sherry. THINGS… is a “who-said-what” game with attitude that is guaranteed to make you laugh.

The TAGIE Awards, held in conjunction with The Chicago Toy & Game Fair, recognize toy and game inventors from around the world. The elegant and playful event brings together industry leaders for a night of celebration, and the award winners are announced. Prior to the event, the TAGIE Awards are voted on by industry experts, retailers and consumers alike, and it’s a great honor to receive one of these prestigious awards! 

What is The Game of THINGS… all about?  Simply read aloud one topic card, such as: “THINGS… you shouldn’t tie to the roof of your car, THINGS… you wish grew on trees, or THINGS… you wouldn’t do for a million dollars”.  Everyone writes a response… read them all out loud… and then guess who said what.  It’s that simple and turns everyone into a comedian.
