Hasbro and Daymond John name crowdfunding game winner

Hasbro Inc. and Daymond John, creator of FUBU and co-star of ABC series Shark Tank have officially selected Cloud Control as the grand prize winner of the Fall 2016 Gaming Challenge.

The challenge offered independent game designers a chance to promote their ideas, while enabling the toy firm to discover and develop new face-to-face games.

The winning game, Cloud Control was created by Eugene Bryant of Suwanee, Georgia and was pitched as a family-friendly game that allows kids to turn, twist, overlap and animate cards to form clouds into recognisable shapes before time runs out.

“Successful game ideas can come from anywhere, and the Gaming Challenges helps us uncover the best of the best for Hasbro Gaming fans,” said Brian Chapman, head of design and development at Hasbro.

“We were thrilled to bring the winning Mr. Toast Game to life in the 2015 Game Challenge, and are excited to work with Eugene to share the imaginative Cloud Control game with our younger fans.”
