Did you know that Alexander Graham Bell, inventor of the telephone, received his well-known middle name as an 11th birthday gift from his father?
And, 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?
A great game for all ages and stages to play together!
PS: We love that Alex, who founded History Heroes, is working hard to represent human diversity and include heroes outside the traditional European account of "history" (which was a bit dominated by European men). This isn't the easiest of tasks and she continues to work on it and refine her games with each reprint. If you have any suggestions for her do tell us or her!
