Big Potato brings its games portfolio to Fenwick

Published on: 16th October 2018

The indie board games company will be showcasing a unique pop-up in the Brent Cross department store.

Big Potato has set up shop in Fenwick Brent Cross department store with its pop-up magical games menagerie. The menagerie will be on display from now until just after Christmas.

Shoppers can visit the Big Potato menagerie in-store, where they can browse through a selection of the company’s party games. The 3 x 3.8m stand is designed to be as eccentric as the games on display – with quiz games in bird cages and word games floating in fish tanks. All the big hits from this year will be on offer, from the rhyming charades game Obama Llama 2, to the internet search guessing game Weird Things Human’s Search For.

A games guru will also be on duty at the menagerie to help explain the games to customers, and to provide some much-needed Christmas gift inspiration.

Big Potato’s Alex Lolies commented: “Previously the menagerie had mainly been used for trade shows, so I’m excited to see what consumers think of it now that it’s public-facing. It’s the perfect time of year, and Fenwick Brent Cross is an ideal location for attracting customers in for some Christmas shopping.”

In an exclusive in-store promotion, visitors to the stand can also pick up a free plush potato with every purchase of two Big Potato Games.
