TDC Games

TDC Games is a board game and jigsaw puzzle manufacturer located in Itasca, Illinois.


TDC was founded in 1984 by Larry Balsamo (former club owner, magician and owner of Hey!Wires Singing Telegrams) and Sandra Bergeson (former soprano with the NYC Opera). TDC is a regular exhibitor at Toy Fair in New York City each year, with products distributed internationally.


The first game in the TDC Line was called "Adultrivia." They have since produced such hit games as "Dirty Minds", "The Jerry Springer Game," "NFL Opoly," "Reminiscing" and "ManLaws & Woman Rules". Most, but not all, of the games, produced by TDC have been conversation/party games with a hint of adult content. Other more family oriented additions have been titles such as "Chess for Dummies," "Senior Moments" and "Make Your Own-opoly."


TDC did not enter the puzzle world until several years ago with a series called "The Alphabet Murder Mystery Puzzles". All of the TDC puzzles have some sort of gimmick. For example, "Portable Puzzles" include a puzzle roll-up in each box. "Puzzles for Dummies" have numbered pieces and a grid to help put it all together, while "Visible Puzzles" have big pieces and a magnifying glass for the vision impaired.The most memorable puzzle in the TDC line has been "LOST". Based on the incredibly popular hit TV show on ABC, the "LOST" puzzles consist of 4 1000 piece puzzles with secret information about the show hidden inside. What most people failed to realize was that the secrets were hidden in glow-in-the-dark images on the back of each puzzle.
