New Game: Patriot Challenge
board game called Patriot Challenge™ is
a board game that celebrates America using reproductions
of U.S. postage stamps to help tell the story of our nation
and test game players' knowledge of the United States of
America. Patriot Challenge™ is the first game about
America to feature U.S. postage stamps.
Included among the 64 U.S. postage stamps are
those that highlight significant events such as the Pilgrims
arriving on the Mayflower, the Boston Tea Party, the Civil
War, The Great Depression, and the Turn of the Century. Important
advances like the Age of Flight, the Automobile Era, communications,
and computer technology are also featured, among others.
And the most recognized symbols of the nation are included:
the Statue of Liberty, Lincoln Memorial, Capitol Building,
Mount Rushmore, the American eagle and the American flag.
Challenge™ was created by a former
sales and marketing executive, Christine Nelson. “My
focus with Patriot Challenge™ has always been on having
fun and learning something along the way,” says Nelson. “While
I was not a history buff before I conceived the game, developing
it has given me a greater appreciation for our country, our
system of government, and the freedoms we enjoy. If that
happens for those who play the game, it will be my contribution
making a difference.”#
