The story of Patch begins in 1971, when brothers Fran and Bryce Patch started a commercial printing company in their hometown, Beloit, Wisconsin. The business was built by printing products for other companies: Fun items such as Trivial Pursuit game boards and Cabbage Patch doll sticker books were brought to life in the Patch facility.
Patch is now proud to have achieved success with many of its own games, including Buzzword®, What’s Yours Like?®, Farkle Frenzy®, Malarky®, Swap!®, Toss Up!®, 5 Second Rule®, 100 Wacky Things®, Go Ape®, Giant Spoons and Word Shout®. Patch has created popular family and party games, and has even dabbled in the retro craze with best-selling 80s games Bed Bugs™ and Shark Attack!™. The value-packed skill-and-action Big Little Games™; and the one-of-a-kind Tales to Play® line, featuring children’s favorite books in board game form, are just a couple more of Patch’s pride-and-joys.
