Summary

Going Cardboard httpsiytimgcomviJfTCmNlZi7smovieposterjpg

Lorien Green shows how modern board games became popular in the United States. This includes interviews with influential game designers, fans, collectors, shop owners, specialized journalists and entrepreneurs who explain how, of all things, the internet promoted the success of non-digital games. It's been suggested that it's a useful tool to introduce newcomers to organized board gaming.

Reception

The Geeks Playing Games website called it a "must see for anyone interested in the people behind the games and the process behind the production", although German newspaper Der Spiegel criticized it for being somewhat dated, as the film spent several years in post-production and only covers games up to 2009.
