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.
