Big Potato to unveil three new games including First Dates game

Board game firm Big Potato has announced plans to show three new titles at London Toy Fair later this month.

The first new game will be based on the Channel 4 primetime show First Dates, commissioned by Twenty Twenty Television. The show has been produced for the show’s core demographic of young adults and is loosely based on the format of the show.

The Chameleon is a brand new game created by renowned inventor Rikki Tahta (Coup, Melee) and crafted by Big Potato. 

The game sees one player taking the role of the Chameleon. They must blend in and not get caught. The other players don’t know who the Chameleon is but they do know the coordinates to a secret word. Using one carefully chosen word each, they try to flush out the Chameleon. But when someone is this good at blending in, innocent people can start looking guilty and the Chameleon can escape undetected.

Thunderbrain and the Colour Machines is the third trivia game to come from Big Potato – after Linkee (now licensed to John Adams in the UK) and Mr Lister’s Quiz Shootout. Like the previous quizzes, Thunderbrain has a twist. This time players are given the answers to all the questions before the start, they just have to work out which ones to use.
