The results of Jumbo Games’ Toy Fair 2015 General Election are in.

Over the course of the London trade show, the puzzle specialist invited visitors to vote in the ballot to imagine the future of politics in the UK.

Visitors could cast their vote for their preferred political party, or they could vote for Jumbo Games’ own candidate, standing for the Wasgij party, David Wasgij.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, attendees decided to put their faith in to Wasgij, with Conservatives and Labour locked jointly in second place.

The Lib Dems placed third.

Jumbo Games also polled visitors by asking them to chose a colour coded cup when they picked up their free coffee from the Jumbo coffee lounge.

The Toy fair initiative was held in celebration of the new General Election range of puzzles from Wasgij, which hit shelves last month and picked up the Best New Toy in the BTHA’s awards for 2015.

There are three puzzles in the range, one each for the conservatives, Labour and Liberal Democrats, each centered on the possible fictional outcomes of the General Election this year.
