Disruptus is a new award-winning game from U.S.-based Funnybone Toys that combines function and fun with a minimal design. The game, which includes cards, a die, and a small hourglass timer, asks players to look at objects and ideas and use different approaches to innovate. The game draws inspiration from the practice of ‘disruptive thinking’, a powerful way to innovate that has been used by corporations and designers to create ideas and objects like digital music, camera phones, and car-sharing programs. It’s a fun gift for designers, students, teachers, or anyone that likes coming up with better ways of doing things. Best of all, it does it while taking you off the electronic grid, even if for just a little while. $24.99. Ages 10 to 99.
