Games of Revolution & Industry

Check out Ross Wolfe's great blog post & gallery on Soviet-era board games from 1920-1938. 

The games feature amazing design with a lot of emphasis on industrial/military/revolutionary themes.

Ross says:

"My favorites among these include the “electrification” board-game, the chemical war game, and the Reds vs. the Whites game. You can tell that they reflect the immediate experience of devastating world war, revolution, and bloody civil war, followed by a project of social engineering and economic modernization the likes of which the world had never seen. The only other thing I’ll say is that, from an aesthetic perspective, one can see the change in the officially-sanctioned styles from the more avant-garde lines, shapes, and typography to the cartoon realism of caricatured figures in the Sots-art of the 1930s. Enjoy!"
