Sid Sackson (1920-2002) is considered by many one of the greatest game designers of all time. A civil engineer by training, he devoted his time, later in life, to playing, collecting, and designing games of all kinds. His financial game Acquire was among the first published in the famous 3M bookshelf game series, and it is still in publication. One of Sackson's many notable game designs is based on the beloved children's book "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory," by Roald Dahl. Sackson's design of a clever race game also takes the form of a book, with punch-out playing pieces and accessories, such as golden tickets.
