A reconstruction of a printed sheet of Ken Garland and Robert Chapman’s game Connect, designed by Ken Garland and Associates for the James Galt Toy Company in 1969. Including an interview with Ken Garland conducted in 2006.

This publication combines a reconstruction of a printed sheet of the popular board game ‘Connect’ with an interview conducted at Ken Garland’s home studio in September 2006. During the interview Garland referred to an interesting detail regarding the design of the game:

“Now, I want to tell you something that a lot of people don’t know. The clue to this game is the template from which all these tiles are cut. When the game came out a lot of companies started to make copies, there was an Italian company, somebody in the United States, Japan – they never seemed to get it quite right. […] If they’d sat down long enough with the original and assembled it – worked out how it would have been layed up to be printed and cut – it wouldn’t have needed too much ingenuity to figure this out.”
