What is Aggravation?

Aggravation is a board game with a long history. Its origins go back to a game called Pachisi that that was invented in India around the 4th century AD. It was originally played on a cloth board shaped like a cross.

When Pachisi found its way to North America in the 1860s, it was marketed as Parcheesi. At this point in the game’s history, the story gets interesting. 

The “official” version of the development of the original Aggravation game is that it was first produced in 1962 by CO-5. However, several people have come forward with claims that a relative of theirs was the true inventor of the game of Aggravation.

Whoever the true inventor was, we’d like to thank them. There is no controversy whatsoever about the fun and excitement of a rousing game of Aggravation!
