If you’ve ever spent a few delightful hours crushing your friends in Connect Four, then you have the child psychologist and one-time Hasbro product manager Howard Wexler to thank.

Together, the pair has revived a handful of Howard’s early concepts, like Switch, where players compete on a board to make their tiles into square, and Primary, a color-pairing card game. Produced in partnership with the Brooklyn design studio W&P, each set looks both thoroughly modern and charmingly retro at the same time. You could say every single one’s a winner.
