The Strong Museum of Play in Rochester, NY has long inducted various toys, games, and random items into the National Toy Hall of Fame. Past inductees have included the stick, the cardboard box, and sand. Notable board game titles such as Risk, Chess, Scrabble, and Monopoly also grace its hallowed halls. This year, the nominees for induction include the hobby board games Settlers of Catan (now just called Catan) by Klaus Teuber and Phase 10 by Ken Johnson, right alongside Nerf, Lite-Brite, Spirograph, and many others. There were 12 new nominees in all, which will be voted on by public ballot. Winning inductees will be announced on November 10, 2022.
