At McNeill Designs, We Are On A Mission.
In recent years, this country has seen a tremendous increase in the cocooning behavior of singles, married couples, friends and families alike. A correlating revitalization of the board and card game industry has opened the door for many new games, as well as increased sales of the classics.
Founded in 2004, McNeill Designs for Brighter Minds launched into this marketplace with a series of innovative board, card, and party games including its flagship product, the word game You’ve been Sentenced! The game has consistently been recognized by both the toy and game industry, as well as the education community, and is the recipient of numerous national awards including:
• PTPA Seal of Approval
• Oppenheim Toy Portfolio, Gold Seal Award
• Creative Child Magazine, Seal of Excellence
• Dr. Toy Best Products
• National Parenting Seal of Approval
• iParenting Media Hot Product Award
• FAO Schwarz Toy Auditions, Winner
• Spewgie Award, Best Family Fun Game
• George Lucas Educational Foundation's Edutopia magazine, Hot Media for Educators
• Mr. Dad Seal of Approval
Following up its success with You’ve been Sentenced, McNeill Designs’ added the award-winning memory game Twisted Fish, numerous You’ve been Sentenced! themed add-on decks, and more to its roster of products. Most recently, the firm announced the launch of a NASA Space Terminology Deck themed add-on deck for the You’ve been Sentenced! word game.
Our philosophy of giving back
From the earliest stages of the firm’s development, McNeill Designs for Brighter Minds has been committed to using its success to help support important charitable causes. McNeill Designs currently donates a portion of sales of the word game You’ve been Sentenced! to Success Won't Wait, Inc. a 501c3 non-profit organization that helps fight illiteracy through the distribution of books.
