Tintin Board and Card Games
January 9, 2011

The Adventures of Tintin, a series of illustrated stories by Hergé (pen name of Georges Remi, 1907-1983), have become popular the world over. The colorful characters and conflicts between right and wrong might be good topics for games. Perhaps with a Steven Spielberg movie coming out we'll see some new tie-in games. Meanwhile, check out The Metamorphoses of Tintin, a brilliant overview of the series that traces the evolution of Tintin's character over the decades.
