A successful industrialist once advised, “Work smarter, not harder!” That magnate was, of course, Scrooge McDuck, but we can imagine the same sentiment coming from another dapper, cane-wielding Beethoven lover with a bunch of rascally nephews: Frank Lloyd Wright. The late architect’s brainy, right angle-eschewing ways live on in the Frank Lloyd Wright Designs Memory Game ($13.95 from Bas Bleu), which challenges players of all ages—or at least those between 3 and 103 years old—to match up images of Wright-designed art-glass windows, carpets, skylights, and more. It sounds simple until all of the nature-infused patterns and telescoping triangles begin to congeal into one big Usonian blur. We suggest investing in a few sets and staging your own FLW Memory tournament. Both the winning and losing teams get to take home spooky Wright marionettes, which we hear come alive at night and rearrange furniture.
