Big Potato celebrates successful gaming event partnership with Forbidden Planet

The Shoreditch-based party game company, Big Potato is celebrating the success of a recent link up with the pop culture specialist Forbidden Planet to host its own tabletop gaming event.

Described as a ‘match made in heaven,’ the event saw Big Potato’s team of game demoers set up within five Forbidden Planet stores across the UK, including in London, Newcastle, and Bristol, where they played host to a series of games from its portfolio.

Games were played, prizes were won and a free pin badge was given out to all the customers that joined in. The badge, designed exclusively for the collaboration, features Big Potato’s smiley ‘tato mascot riding the iconic Forbidden Planet rocket.

On top of the pin badges, visitors also had a chance to try their luck and win a pre-release copy of Big Potato’s new movie party game: ‘The Blockbuster Game’ (not officially available until July).

Big Potato’s Alex Lolies, who worked closely with Forbidden Planet on the event, said: “We were delighted to partner with Forbidden Planet for this event. Their customers are the perfect fit for our games, so it was fantastic to be able to chat to them face-to-face on a nationwide level.

“Everyone in the Forbidden Planet team, from the store managers to head office, have been such a joy to work with and we’re already looking forward to collaborating with them again in the future.”

Forbidden Planet’s Danie Ware, added: “We were very pleased to host the Big Potato Games demonstrations in our stores. Our staff and customers all had a wonderful time, and took many great memories away from the day. We’re definitely looking forward to more Big Potato gaming.”
