FOUNDER, GOLIATH GAMES
In 1980 Goliath was started in the Netherlands by Adi Golad as a one game, one man company. This one game is called Rummikub, and in its best year 600,000 copies were sold on the Dutch market. This is the highest sales figure per capita in 1 year ever achieved in the Western hemisphere for any game, including Monopoly, Scrabble, Trivia and Millionaire. To date, 5 million Rummikub games have been sold in the Netherlands alone! Today, Goliath is one of the fastest growing toy companies in the world and has offices in France, Spain, Portugal, United States, Germany, Belgium, Canada and the Far East. Goliath’s products are being sold in over 60 different countries.
