It's not just movies: Gen X board games are getting a reboot too, Bloomberg reports.
Restoration Games "is remaking and reissuing some of the treasured games of old — both for wistful Gen Xers and their more discerning children," Bloomberg notes.
The company was "founded in 2016 to secure the rights to classic game titles and reintroduce them with updated rules."
One example is Fireball Island, which first came out in 1986.
Another is Return to Dark Tower, which "incorporates an app into gameplay, and its tower — with glowing symbols that reveal enemy locations and assign quests — is more complex than that of the old version."
The bottom line: “You see this in movies, Broadway, television: the constant rebooting of things from the past. Board games are really no different.”
