About this project
"THIS is a rather cool ‘n’ informative infographic and should be on a wall in every games store / game room."
SweeTooth Design Company is a design team that collaborate food, design, & games! While we love collecting creative recipes around the world, we are also researchers who write about history and fun facts about desserts and foodie. From our first successfully funded project, "Genesis of Cookies Poster, the Documented History of Cookie," the illustration was inspired from our Cookie Research. Similarly, we would love to introduce "Origin of Games" project to express our passion for classic games!
Similar to our previous projects, ORIGIN OF GAMES is an infographic of the world's famous classic games that is inspired by our surprising research finding on game history!
In the previous months, we began exploring the history of the world's most famous classic games that our team really loves. It includes Chess, Scrabble, Tic Tac Toe, Chinese Chess, Go, Chinese Checkers, etc.
After we do the research, we discovered more surprising origin of these fun classic games such as: Chess is originated from India, playing cards are originated from China, Chinese Checkers are invented from Germany, etc. We are very excited to share these fascinating knowledge with you through our latest poster, "Origin of Games!"
Our design team spent months in drawing, designing, & selecting the top 25 classic games that we wanted to showcase on "Origin of Games".
The design is not only easy to read and follow, but it adds depth to both VINTAGE & POP version. For POP version, the poster takes on a checker board orientation for a fun appearance. Framed in a gold & red Venetian border, the infographic is brighten with a classic look.
For VINTAGE version, we wanted to introduce a classic feel with a natural mahogany background. The games look as if they are physically placed on a wooden tabletop.

Risks and challenges
Within the year, SweeTooth Design's Kickstarter projects, "Genesis of Cookies" & "Alchemy of Tea," were both successfully funded. Through both Kickstarter projects, our team had gained a lot of experience working towards our goal. Even after our Kickstarter campaign ended, we are still available in follow-up and assist backers with problems like estimating reward delivery time, tracking rewards, add-on, etc.
We believe a successful campaign is created through communication and commitment.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
