  • Women and Boardgames Part 2: What Women (supposedly) Want

    Stereotypical "games for girls"

    Women love Scattergories, but they hate Risk. Girls love Dream Phone, but they hate Chess. Or so we're told. In the second episode of our series on women and boardgames, we take a closer look at the kinds of games girls and women are supposed to like better than others. Where do these stereotypes come from? How much truth is there to them? And what does it take to break free of the pink and purple box?
