Philip E. Orbanes

Philip E. Orbanes began inventing games at age eight after playing Monopoly for the first time. He started his own game company as he entered college and sold it to a New York toy company before he graduated. Phil has been in the industry ever since, including three years running Ideal Toy’s game division, eleven years as Senior VP of Research & Development at Parker Brothers, and twenty-five years as co-founder, president, and director of Winning Moves Games—the leading maker of classic games sold through specialty retailing. Since 1979, he has served as chief judge at US and World Monopoly Championships. He has been interviewed dozens of times, and appeared on TV and in print (most recently in Think magazine).
