Continent Race, the Fun Family Board Game, Originally Created by Six-Year-Old in Hospital, is Available Now on Amazon

Continent Race from Byron's Games is a fun and educational game for children that the whole family will love

Little Byron had a month-long stay at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital in Chicago, Illinois when he was just six years old. As a way to pass the time, Byron channeled his passion for geography and created a fun game to share with other children. Continent Race is an exciting and interactive board game that helps children learn the continents, countries, and flags of the world and keeps players of all ages engaged.

Continent Race also fosters social interaction skills and boosts self-confidence. The object of the game is to be the player who collects the most country flag cards from each continent first. Specialty cards and color-coded maps add to the excitement.

First launched on a Kickstarter campaign, which raised 212 percent of its goal, Continent Race is now available on Amazon. The company which was formed, Byron’s Games, also has a focus on giving back. Along with the help from Kickstarter backers, Byron’s Games is donating 150 games to 130 U.S. Children’s Hospitals. The company is also donating a portion of proceeds to children’s charities. This year, they are donating to the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, where Byron was treated.

“We are grateful that so many have helped support this effort and are thrilled that we can share games nationwide and give back to the hospital that helped Byron during his unexpected illness,” says mom and business partner, Julie. “Byron was inspired to help kids like him learn and have fun through their hospital stay — and beyond.”

Upcoming in 2019, the company will release Continent Race World Puzzle app and a new video series, called Learn and Explore, that will be donated to U.S. Children’s Hospitals. The videos feature interviews with an astronomer, scientist, artist, chef, musician, Bollywood dancer, Rubik’s cube champion, speed stacker, and more.
