Warwick Davis to make Toy Fair appearance with Asmodee UK

Harry Potter and Star Wars actor, Warwick Davis will be heading to London toy Fair next week to help promote a board game based on the ITV quiz show, Tenable.

Davis will appear on the Asmodee UK stand E109 in the early afternoon of Tuesday, January 22nd – the first day of the event.

Tenable is a board game adaptation of the popular quiz show that Davis currently presents on ITV.

The actor and TV personality will be on hand to show off and answer questions about the Tenable board game, which adapts the game of completing top-10 lists into a format that the whole family can enjoy around the table at home.

He will also be available to the press for questions and a photo opportunity.

“We are very excited to have Warwick Davis join us on the stand at Toy Fair,” said Asmodee’s marketing manager, Ben Hogg.

“Clearly we couldn’t have a better advocate for Tenable, and we expect that the buzz around his presence will reflect fans’ excitement to try their hand at Tenable at home.”

Tenable, which is produced by Initial as part of Endemol Shine UK, has aired on ITV since November 2016, with 140 episodes already under its belt, 30 more to air starting later in January and a further 60 soon to go into production.

The show’s popularity, which saw its last series achieve a market share 24 per cent higher than the daytime average, has also spawned a best-selling app on Apple and Android.

The Tenable game is designed and manufactured by Rocket Games, who have partnered with Endemol Shine, and shall be distributed through Asmodee.
