Our slogan ‘Clever Together!’ applies to our products – that combine fun and wittiness – as well as the internal processes of creating and marketing them.
Goliath Games was founded in 1980 by Adi Golad. From a one-man-one-product-one-country- show, we are now selling thousands of products, with hundreds in the team, in tens of countries.
A call in the desert…
.. Adi and Margreeth (his wife) fell in love over a game of Rummikub with the Israeli desert in the background. Shortly after their encounter, Margreeth revealed the game to her family in her home country Holland. The two of them dropped everything and followed the call that changed their life.
To cut a long story short, Adi quit his career as a mechanical engineer, married his love, traded his car for 500 games, moved to Holland and together with his wife, began selling board games on the street, because the conventional trade rejected their offering. Despite obstacles on the way, by applying grass-root marketing they popularized this one single game among Dutch people. Their persistence and efforts paid off, consequently setting and holding a world record in quantity of a single game sold per capita in one year.
Serving 1,5 billion consumers
The extensive efforts eventually formed the solid foundation for the organization as it stands today with offices and distributors around the globe: serving 1,5 billion consumers worldwide. Goliath is constantly searching for new opportunities, inventions, distributors and talents for our large variety of games as well as toys.

At Goliath we continuously work on the creation of innovative products that contribute to the universal need for and benefit of (social) fun.
