We never know the path others are traveling

It saddens my heart that so many are sick and so many are dying. May we at this time pause and have a moment of silence for those that we have lost. They are our family members, friends

r By Steve Southwick

rOft times popular games begin in a very small way. Back in 1883 at age 16, George Parker came up with a game of money called “Banking.” Friends and family liked it so much they convinced him to publish it. He spent $40 to come up with 500 sets, of which he sold all but 12 and made $100. George formed his game business and in a few years brothers Edward and Charles joined the company. In the early 1900s, ROOK became the best-selling card game in the country. During the depression, George and his brothers came up with “Monopoly” and, as they say, the rest is history. “Clue,” “Trivial Pursuit” and scores of others followed.

rPayson’s Josh and Emily Rigby are not betting the family diamonds the same will happen to them, but they are hoping for big things. The local founders of Rigco Games did begin their journey in a very small way. On Thanksgiving Day four years ago, one of the kids accidentally spilled some water on the table. The tablecloth didn’t soak up the water, and according to Emily Rigby, “It beaded up instead and we all had lots of fun blowing the water around the table.”

rEmily says Drip Darts was the first game the couple came up with, and after a while of working on it they started thinking, “We could do Drip Drop Sports! So now we have Drip Drop soccer, football, baseball, basketball, bowling and lots more to come.”

rAccording to the Rigbys’ very flashy website Rigcogames.com, Drip Drop Games can be played by children of all ages and are used at birthday parties, school activities and holiday parties. The website reads, “We love bringing it to family activities, and playing it for family game night.  Drip Drop Games are competitive, easy to learn, and educational using simple addition and subtraction.”

rJosh and Emily Rigby’s children, Addalynn, Colby, Cameron and Ava Sue, spend lots of spare time playing Drip Drop, with Colby and Cameron especially enjoying shooting drops of water into the soccer net.

rJosh and Emily are selling the games on their website rigcogames.com as well as on Amazon and Ebay. To receive coupon codes and be the first to know when new games come out, find them on Facebook by searching for Rigco Game.
