New card-based quiz game Linkee has launched its own pop-up shop. 

The brand - which runs its own Ann Summers-style parties - is a part of StartUp Britain's 'PopUp Britain' campaign.

The project has gained support from big names such as Mary Portas, Sir Charles Dunstone, Vince Cable and Simon Arora. It seeks to give new British brands an opportunity to get their products onto the British High Street.

The pop-up shop is open now in Richmond High Street and will close on December 9th. It features four other start-ups.

Linkee founder Dean Tempest said: "We know the best way to sell Linkee is to demo the game. Once people play it they seem to really get into it, so to have our own retail space on the High Street is fantastic."

StartUp Britain co-founder Emma Jones added: “We launched PopUp Britain to bring great British businesses to the High Street and to fill empty shops that depress our towns."
