Description Edit | History

Sid Sackson (February 4, 1920 - November 6, 2002) was a significant American board game designer, collector, and writer. At the time of his death, the Chicago-born game designer had a collection of over 18,000 games.

He was also known to be an exceptional dancer.

"(A good game) should be easy to learn yet have infinite strategic possibilities, give you the chance to make choices, create interaction among players and take a maximum of one and a half hours to play." -- Sid Sackson

"A game is a work of art as worthy of being signed as a painting, a book, or a musical composition … the inventor should have the right, and the obligation, to sign his work." -- Sid Sackson
