Going Cardboard Trailer
Going Cardboard is a documentary about the American adoption of German-style board games, and includes coverage of the 2009 board game event Spiel in Essen, Germany, as well as interviews with many prominent game designers. The film was written, directed and produced by Lorien Green, who was introduced to board gaming by her husband, and the film was financed through the crowd funding service Kickstarter.
"Do you have fond childhood memories of gathering around the table with the family for a game of Monopoly, Scrabble, or LIFE?
Cardboard is making a comeback.
In an era of tech-based entertainment, word is spreading about a new breed of board game. Going Cardboard takes you into the designer "German-style" board gaming scene, from its community of enthusiastic fans to the creative passions of the designers and their journeys from concept to reality."
