Joking Hazard is pleased to announce a new partnership with M.O.B Vanguard in a continued effort to be at the forefront of bringing fun and laughter to homes around the globe.

Joking Hazard began the foray into tabletop gaming with the launch of a wildly successful crowdfunding campaign to create its flagship game of the same name. This endeavor garnered support from over 63,000 backers, raising an impressive $3.2m in funding. The company’s expanding portfolio includes best-selling party games like Trial By Trolley and Master Dater, and the team is now moving into the family-friendly realm with the upcoming sausage-themed strategy game, Sosig.

M.O.B Vanguard has been involved with tabletop gaming for decades, continuing to be a stalwart supporter and nurturer of creativity within the industry. With a focus on licensing and tabletop gaming consulting, it has proudly collaborated with and served many prominent companies and figures in the gaming industry and has signed over 500 contracts and sold over 2m games.

Joking Hazard is the games division of multimedia powerhouse Cyanide & Happiness. Earlier this year, the company officially signed with Gift PR for its UK and US PR needs.

Cyanide & Happiness is an internationally recognised brand known for its webcomics, animated show, YouTube videos and popular ‘not-for-kids’ party games, all of which are fuelled by a dedicated and long-standing fanbase. Boasting 12m Facebook followers, 3.75b+ views on YouTube, over a million daily visitors to its website and 1.9m Instagram followers, the company’s social reach speaks for itself.
