Jumanji, Spy Code and a new Strictly Come Dancing title have been named among the 15 board games predicted to be top sellers at Smyths Toys Superstores this Christmas shopping period.
Hasbro has dominated the listing this year with seven of the 15 titles including classics such as Buckaroo, Mouse Trap and Hungry Hungry Hippos as well as revamped versions of its iconic titles such as Monopoly Cheaters Edition and Connect Four Shots.
Yulu Toys, Spin Master, and MGA Entertainment also features alongside John Adams’ recently launched Strictly Come Dancing board game inspired by the BBC show.
The list has been revealed as Board Games continue to pick up pace among modern consumers, and while it falls predictably short of the scope of today’s burgeoning party game scene, it goes someway to highlight the popularity of the scene among families this year.
