Containing a rich history dating back to ancient times, board games delight children and adults alike with their playful nature. Though these games come in a wide variety of topics and themes, many games connect with the culture of their times. Wealth accumulation games reflect the growth of a consumer society, war games re-create familiar battles, and educational games prepare children for school and work. Popular television shows, films, books and other entertainment media also find their way into board games, allowing players to actively participate in their favorite fictional worlds.

This board game puts players in the shoes of a press photographer for a city newspaper. Assignment cards direct where on the board players should move in order to capture the best image for the story. The game is also a race against time, as true photographers always have deadlines to meet before the paper goes to press.
