London’s board game company Big Potato Games has secured a three-year license agreement in the USA and Canada with Spin Master. The partnership will see Big Potato’s portfolio of titles enjoy distribution with major retailers throughout the region.
ToyNews broke the story that Spin Master is taking on the range of Big Potato games, with over 15 existing titles, back in January this year. Bestsellers in the lineup include the ‘whodunnit’ family party game The Chameleon, which will be available at major retailers this spring.
It will be joined by the shout-out trivia game Linkee, which will launch in the US in 2020.
Big Potato and Spin Master are also collaborating on new games and licenses, including Disney Colorbrain and a new party game for the nostalgic video-rental store Blockbuster – both launching this year.
Dean Tempest, co-founder of Big Potato, commented on the new agreement: “We’ve tried to grow our team over the last few years to be able to work with a large partner, and this new collaboration is already providing lots of exciting opportunities for Big Potato.”
“Big Potato is a boutique company with an extremely creative and talented team,” said Anton Rabie, Spin Master’s Co-Founder and Co-CEO. “We’re thrilled about our partnership with them and the opportunity to bring their games to a wider audience.”
Spin Master has steadily been expanding its leading position within the Games category through acquisitions of new titles as well as innovative partnerships such as the one formed with Big Potato. Today, Spin Master is the second largest games company in the United States.
