Inventors who changed the world.
Get blown away by the latest History Heroes game
Which inventor, most commonly linked with a peace prize, was the brains behind dynamite?
The answer: Alfred Nobel. It’s just one of hundreds of facts in the latest edition of the award winning History Heroes card games.
History Heroes’ has just launched its new card game: INVENTORS and includes forty beautifully illustrated cards, each with fun and fascinating facts about an inventor who has made an impact on all of our lives.
Did you know that Alexander Graham Bell, inventor of the telephone, only received his well-known middle name as an 11th birthday gift from his father?
The History Heroes game gets players guessing who the inventor is with a series of facts designed to test the knowledge of anyone aged eight years to 80+! If a player correctly works out who it is from the colour coded statements, each targeted at different ability levels, they win the card. The aim of the game? To end up with more of the cards than anyone else…and learn a little along the way!
Whilst most might know that Florence Nightingale was the founder of modern nursing, how many realise that she is also credited as the inventor of the mathematical pie chart?
The History Heroes ‘INVENTORS’ edition is the latest in a series of History Heroes games that entertain and educate through play. The games won Junior Magazine’s Best Toy Design Award when the first four games were launched in AW2014. All the cards are meticulously researched by a team of experts, beautifully illustrated with colourful drawings and then printed and packaged in the UK.
Alex Ehrmann, whose father Ralph helped take Airfix models to great heights when he joined that company in the 1950s, is doing the same with History Heroes. With an already loyal following, including Bear Grylls. Kate Winslet and Jeremy Paxman, Alex has also been introducing the card games as teaching aids in schools. As well as INVENTORS there are 5 other History Heroes games that focus on SPORT, WORLD WAR ONE, CHILDREN, SCIENTISTS and EXPLORERS.
Speaking before the launch of History Heroes ‘INVENTORS’, Alex Ehrmann said, “History Heroes was conceived as a game that the whole family can play together, regardless of age or ability. Having spent six months putting the INVENTORS edition together, I really believe this is our most accessible game yet. INVENTORS is a perfect gift, packed full of a fantastic range of historical figures who changed the world with inventions we all see and use every day.”
The pocket-sized History Heroes card packs are the perfect size for family travels too. They can be bought online at History Heroes’ website and on Amazon and at select high street retailers. History Heroes would be delighted to provide review/sample copies of any of the games.
