War Games: How Britons Kept The Home Fires Burning Playing Trivial PursuitTaking a different angle to most other World War One commemorations taking place in London this year, War Games at the Museum of Brands, Packaging and Advertising focuses on the war-themed games that Britons played during the war. As the war progressed toy shops filled with games reflecting the latest war events, involving recent inventions as tanks or with titles such as War Tactics: Can Great Britain Be Invaded? Further titles included Race to Berlin, Battle in the Skies and Running The Blockade.

 

About Museum of Brands, Packaging and Advertising

From Cornflakes to Ker-plunk, Spacedust to Spacehoppers, take a nostalgic tour through 200 years of British consumerism with Robert Opie's unique creation. Enter the Museum of Brands, Packaging and Advertising and you enter a time tunnel transporting you from the Victorian era to modern marketing, stopping off to examine the Edwardian craze for ping-pong, the beginnings of radio and television, two World Wars and the Swinging 60s.
