Einstein became a board game

That font wasn't the only Einstein-related Kickstarter campaign. After working on games related to Newton, Tesla, Galileo and Edison, a small Massachusetts-based company called Artana took to the crowdfunding site to create a board game celebrating the life of Einstein. "Along with his fame as a scientist, Einstein embodied the attributes of courage and moral conviction, and evinced a personality of joy and lightness of spirit," said Artana's Marcus Muller. "This extraordinary combination made Einstein one of the most beloved individuals of the 20th century, and we look forward to honoring his legacy.”
