We are looking to replicate the products success in the UK by backing it with a comprehensive marketing and PR campaign which will focus on getting the product in the hands of not just children but big kids too. We are rolling out a brand awareness campaign across universities and colleges as it’s a brilliant game to challenge your mates to.”
