Millionaires, Taskmasters, and a whole House of Games
Building on its successful range of games, Ginger Fox has been busy coming up with new and fresh ideas. Together with popular new licensed games, we’re bringing fun into your living room this year.
Bring home the nation’s favourite game show and face off against family and friends, racing to reach £1million, in the Who Wants To Be A Millionaire Board Game. Put yourself in the hot seat and take on the iconic money ladder, using only your wits and digital lifelines to reach the top but watch out! answer incorrectly and you’ll fall back to your closest safe haven. The game includes more than 700 questions and access to digital lifelines, accessible through a smart device.
“There is so much potential in this area and we look forward to rolling out even more over the coming year. Watch this space.”
Based on the award-winning Channel 4 entertainment show, hosted by the mountainous Greg Davies and his assistant Little Alex Horne, our best-selling Taskmaster Board Game brings the very essence of this peculiarly popular show to the comfort of your own home… or preferably someone else’s home, as things can get a bit messy!
Following on from the huge success of Taskmaster Board Game, new for 2021 is the Taskmaster Game Expansion Pack. The pack contains 40 brand new ludicrous task cards, including 10 exclusive video tasks set by Alex that update throughout the year. Another new expansion pack twist is the 10 Prize Task cards that raise the stakes of the game – the illustrious winner takes all prizes. Included in the pack is your very own Little Alex Horne to indulge your every whim.
Based on the hit BBC2 show hosted by Richard Osman, our best-selling House of Games Board Game is the ultimate test of knowledge and skill. Team up to tackle trivia or face off against each other in the iconic Answer Smash. Who will be the House of Games champion in this competitive compendium of games? Back in stock in April 2021.
Fans of The Chase can test their brainpower in the brand-new card game Beat The Chasers, based on the popular spin-off series where one quizzer takes on two, three, four or all five Chasers to win a cash prize. Whatever your taste in TV game shows, Ginger Fox has a license to thrill!
Also new in 2021 is Joggles – family fun where perception is deception, Play Your Number – trivia game using your phone digits as the playing hand, and Don’t be a Dik Dik enthusiasts will love Calm Your Tits! From Bajillions, the snappy giant numbers party game to Memory Mayhem, a mind-bending multi-tasking memory game there is something for everyone this year.
The Showcase Q&A: Ginger Fox talks the upcoming 2021 delights for board game fans
ToyNews catches up with Ginger Fox’s marketing executive, Zoe Farmer
Hello Lewis, to start off – can you talk us through the strength of the Ginger Fox toys and games portfolio for this year?
The strength of our 2021 Ginger Fox catalogue lies in our growing portfolio of license games, as well as the addition of some great new non-license family games to complement our evergreens and best sellers.
What are the key launches and the key trends that you’re tapping into for the coming year? Why should retailers be excited to work with Ginger Fox for the coming year?
We had amazing success in 2020 with both the award-winning Taskmaster Board Game and Richard Osman’s House of Games Party Game, so licensed product continues to be a key trend and focus for us.
In 2021 we will be launching three new board games – Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, BBC’s Top Gear and Popmaster – as well as adding Beat the Chasers to our best selling range of licensed card games. The reaction from buyers so far has been fantastic so we enter 2021 full of confidence and incredibly excited about our new product launches.
What’s the next big move for you guys as we head into 2021?
We’re really excited about our growing portfolio of TV licensed games as you will already have read above, but also the fantastic added value we are bringing to many of these games through digital functionality, features and content.
This functionality has allowed us to capture the unique excitement of shows like Beat the Chasers and Millionaire, better than has ever previously been possible in a card or board game.
We are planning seasonal updates to much of our digital content during Christmas, Valentine’s Day and other events, making these games even more enjoyable to play again and again. There is so much potential in this area and we look forward to rolling out even more over the coming year. Watch this space.
