From the largest multi-national companies to indie games makers and even individual new-comers, we're happy to shine a light on a variety of views of the gaming industry and experiences for those at all points on the gaming ladder!

Today - Tactic Games ...


For over fifty years, Tactic Games has been known for its innovative, exciting and fun games that delight millions of families around the world.  Based in Finland, where we manufacture the vast majority of our games, our mission is to produce board games that help families and friends spend quality time together whilst creating special memories.  We pride ourselves on high-class Scandinavian quality and a responsible approach to ethical issues and the environment. We are famous for games such as Flags of the World, the word explaining game Alias that celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2020 and has sold over 5 million copies worldwide, and outdoor sporty game Mölkky.   



We are always striving to deliver educational games for children aged 3 to 12 and at no time has that been more important than during a global pandemic. We have a selection of trivia games that can assist with home learning and help children learn about the world, including Flags of the World, Wonders of the World, Animals of the World and I Love Britain, all suitable for players aged 8+. New for 2021 is Children of the World, a younger version to teach 5 year olds about cultures, natural wonders, landmarks and traditions.  Players have to travel around the world map game board and collect cards on the way, a play pattern that will train them perfectly for the other games in the series for when they are older.  


Finland is very proud to be one of the top nations for education and Tactic is also looking forward to unveiling some lovely new educational, ecological and ethical games for pre-schoolers this year.  The new series is called “Let’s Learn” and will help make learning fun across a variety of topics for 3 and 4 year olds.  Letters and Words assists with the alphabet and spelling and the Numbers game encourages mathematical and logical thinking.  The Nature themed game tests memory skills using pictures about the environment, whilst Colours and Shapes boosts early observational and fine motor skills.
