The feature also showcased Accentuate, the guess-the-accent party game for adults, as well as The Crazy Cat Lady game and Giant Snakes and Ladders.

Creator of Obama Llama, radio DJ Matt Edmondson, said “When I came up with the idea for Obama Llama, I could never have dreamed of it bringing out the hilariously competitive sides of Holly and Phil on This Morning. Seeing the game getting reviewed and creating such a big reaction was amazing.”

Accentuate’s CEO, Graeme Fraser-Bell, said: “It was terrific to see Accentuate featured alongside the classics on This Morning. We’ve seen an immediate uplift in sales through our website on the back of this great PR, so it’s good to know there’ll be plenty of people enjoying the fun of accents this Christmas.”

The presenters also discussed board games of the past, including Buckaroo, Operation and the varied editions of Monopoly.
