Lamar Hunt, original owner of the Kansas City Chiefs, was a pioneer in the growth of professional athletics, evidenced by his induction into eight halls of fame ranging from football to tennis. Hunt’s passion for competition earned him the childhood nickname “Games.”

The documentary of the same name, Games, explores the sporting life of Hunt, and focuses on his legacy as an innovator and a man revered for his humility and gracious manner. The film will be introduced by Kansas City Chiefs team historian Bob Moore.
