    Sorry! is a popular board game in which players try to travel around the board with their pieces (called pawns) faster than any other player. The game was first published in 1929 in England by W.H. Storey & Company and in later years was introduced to America by Parker Brothers. Today it is wholly owned and distributed by Hasbro.

    Since 1972, its logo typeface is Advertisers Gothic. It’s bold and brash, like the city it comes from, Chicago. Advertisers Gothic was designed by the accomplished German-American matrix engraver, Robert Wiebking, for the Western Type Foundry in 1917.
