Many South Africans identify with the fun family game – it has filled many evenings with laughter and has playfully pushed the boundaries of many relationships.

The original version was created in 1903 – The Landlord’s Game, designed to demonstrate the power of rent on property owners and tenants. The city of Cape Town is South Africa’s first regional city to receive its own game.
