Replicas of Ruins Editions are reissues of historic games. We partner with museums and archives to highlight the significance of select titles, making these often delicate artifacts available for purchase.

These games are fully playable, including boards, pawns, instructions, and other items. Additionally, each game includes a peer-reviewed scholarly introduction written by a relevant expert. These are the equivalent of scholarly reissues of classic books, but for games.

Why? Games are a vital part of culture and history, and we should be able to teach them the same way we do other historic texts. Games are available to purchase through print-on-demand service. If you have a game you’d like to see in print, get in touch.
