According to the dictionary definition, Games are “form of competitive activity or sport played according to rules.” But during our childhood , hardly any one played by the rules! Instead, the rules were amended according to the people we played with.
In the rat race for success, we all have almost forgotten the board games. To spread awareness about board games and the important role it plays by making people communicate, interact and work in teams and relieving one from stress , made Krunal Veera with his wife Jill Veera, start ‘The Board Game Co’. They operate in 3 segments - Corporates, Social and Emerge for Kids.
The couple took the plunge and quit their respective jobs to turn their passion into career. Starting something different has its own challenges. Krunal says, “People in India aren’t aware about modern board games. Creating awareness about it was a challenge. Being a different concept for the corporates apart from their normal team building and stress relieving activities, we had a tough time to get our clients. By word of mouth and in a short span of time, our wings have spread overseas too.” Krunal further says, “One should be able to grab opportunities and never let them go away. Take the plunge, burn the bridges, and that’s the only way one can move forward.” Board games are a means to develop skills and knowledge. Moving away from your desks and gadgets for a while can only be good for you!
