SUM FUN was invented by David Bullen, an accountant from Surrey. He has always had an interest in playing board games like Monopoly, Risk and Scrabble.
David has his mother to thank for bringing him up on a diet of board games. It wasn’t unusual to find them playing a game of Scrabble well into the early hours (even falling asleep during turns at times!). Being a bit of a ‘wordsmith’, his mother would ofter win. The problem was, David was always more of a numbers rather than a letters man.
David had always wondered how different things would be if the tables were turned. It was during a weekend away that he had a moment of inspiration…
