my entire family often wonders about who invented our favorite games and so now we know...we loved the Game of Life and owned 3 sets in my life and my children's.. when the spinner would not work properly we knew we had worn it out and would save up to buy another. life was made more fun because of this sweet man.

I worked with Reuben in the mid/late '70s, assisting him and my grandfather Aaron (Al) Binder with their business. Reuben and Al both had great minds for inventing and working on really fun projects. May his memory be a blessing.
