Blankgame which makes the wordgame “Blank” from Killin in Perthshire, is one of 12 companies selected from a record number of almost 700 entrants in a competition run by John Lewis to support British innovation. All 12 finalists will receive mentoring from the retailer with a view to having their products stocked in John Lewis stores.
Angela Ramsay of Blankgame said: “Our aim was to make a top quality game that would be great fun for both kids and adults and last for generations. We’ve already received a business award from ex-Dragon’s Den star Theo Paphitis and “Blank” was chosen as one of the Top 10 British made buys by “British Family”. Being selected by John Lewis in the face of some very tough competition is a dream come true.”
“Blank” is a patented game designed by two word game fans who love Scrabble and crosswords. More details about the game can be seen at www.fiendishlyfabulous.com.
