Goodreads asked Tristan Donovan:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Tristan Donovan I played a lot of board games as a kid, my family would usually get out Monopoly, Game of Life or similar after Sunday dinner so I guess the roots of the book lie in that.

The other inspiration was that my first book was a history of video games and so also writing a book about the history of board games felt like a natural choice.
