In 1991 Gary Wyatt, founder of The Green Board Game Company decided to turn his “Number-plate game” into a Board Game; for several years stuck in traffic returning from the office, he would pass the time away creating words from numbers and then extending the game by making words from the letters; beginning with A, B, C, and then linking them to birds, fish, mammals, etc. It was here where his first board game, Alpha Animals was devised, a game that is still available today! Having had 1000 produced, he purchased a pitch at the Alexandra Palace Gift Fair to test the market. By the end of the fair Gary had sold almost all of the games and shortly after The Green Board Game Company Limited was incorporated on 25th February 1991.
After 16 years of developing a plethora of successful games, GBG launched a new gameplay concept: BrainBox World, which gave birth to the now world renowned BrainBox range consisting of over 40 different titles, sold across 57 countries and published in 26 languages! Having grown our raft of family board games over the past 25 years, we now also incorporate a range of wooden construction toys and learning books in our portfolio, in addition to the launch of Green Board Education.
