The V&A Museum of Childhood have been raiding their cupboards and dug out some classic board games which you are probably far too young to remember. Everyone knows Chess and Scrabble, but what about The Game of the Goose?

This exhibition will include more than 100 of the most iconic, enthralling and - let's be honest - the most annoying games from their collection (any yes, I am thinking of Monopoly!), alongside lots of familiar favourites like Cluedo and Trivial Pursuit.

Board games are enjoyed by everyone, young and old. They can both teach and entertain us, and bring together family and friends.

The exhibition will explore the important role of design, and highlight some of their history and influence.
