Late for the Sky Production Company began making specialty board games in 1984. Our first game was MIAMIOPOLY, based on Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. Company founder and president is a 1980 graduate of Miami University and her time spent there served as the inspiration for the first game. The title list soon spread to around 80 major U.S. colleges. Each game is a walk around a specific university and the board spaces are the campus buildings, local businesses and traditions that are special to that school. The success in the college market prompted the entry into a new market - games designed around major cities, creating the CITY IN-A-BOX line of board games. These games are filled with local landmarks, icons, and traditions that present the character of cities all over the U.S. and Canada, without the clutter and bias of advertising.
The 1990s and the beginning of the 21st century have proven to be an incredible time of reinvention and innovation for us. In addition to our extremely popular COLLEGEOPOLY and CITY IN-A-BOX lines, we have brought to the marketplace some of the best selling board games based on popular culture themes like decades, animals and pets, music and movies, food and spirits.
PHHS & Museum used another division of the company. Custom Games are a collection of your own ideas, images, logos, and information that they develop into a property trading game just like all the ones you will see on their site. All of the board spaces, movement cards, deed cards, box images, box bottom copy, pewter tokens, and game money are connected to your subject. Organizations use a custom game to inform, promote, reward, make money – anything you can do with a variety of promotional products. The only difference is that a game is truly unique. Not that your logo on a coffee mug isn’t “unique”, it’s just that you’ve probably already done that or you’ve seen that item somewhere.
