8-year-old’s board game to be sold nationwide
Franklin Wright has been inventing games most of his short life, but in the near future, the rest of the world will get a chance to play one. The 8-year-old’s board game — Conveyer Belt — will be published and distributed nationally later this year.
Franklin was the Grand Prize Winner of the 2013 National Young Game Inventor’s Contest, which challenges kids from 5-12 to come up with their own game. Franklin bested 180 other entries to nab the honor, which yielded a $10,000 college savings bond, a $200 Toys R Us gift card and a trip to University Games, which will distribute Conveyor Belt.
