All a-board: families travelling by ferry can enjoy Asmodee games

Published on: 24th October 2022

A selection of Asmodee’s most popular games will be available to play aboard Wightlink ferries from this half term. 


Ferry passengers can choose from a carefully curated selection of some of Asmodee’s most popular family friendly games.

Dobble, one of Asmodee’s most popular games, and Wightlink are joining forces in a bid to make ferry travel to and from the Isle of Wight even more enjoyable for families, and to get ‘More People Playing More Games More Often’, a core part of the company’s ethos.

The initiative will see some of Asmodee’s most famous games, including Dobble, Egg Slam and So Wrong It’s Right, on board Victoria of Wight and St Clare ferries throughout autumn. The games can be found in the Movie Room on Victoria of Wight and in the Teen Scene area of St Clare.

As the newest and biggest ferry in Wightlink’s fleet, Victoria of Wight introduces a new, greener era of travel by running on Hybrid energy. Both ships are spacious and comfortable, with outside sun decks and cafés selling a range of treats made on the Isle of Wight.

Head of marketing at Asmodee, James Arnold, commented: “We wanted to find a way to ease holiday stress and make travelling more enjoyable, not only for parents but also for the children. That’s how we came up with the idea of providing games for Wightlink and their ferries.”

Head of Marketing at Wightlink, David Williams, added: “Families love travelling by ferry, and we are sure our youngest customers will love playing these amazing games during their crossings.”

The Asmodee Playbox will be available on board Victoria of Wight and St Clare from this week.
