Toy Fair 2013 was definitely marked by super storm Nemo and despite our worries of product not being delivered, cancelled flights and missed appointments, we happily all made it to the Big Apple safely. As the biggest event in the toy industry, NYTF always guarantees an amazing turn out of game inventors, new companies, innovative toys, games and everything else in between.
2013 marked our 16th year attending Toy Fair and with our expanding line of family and party games, we made quite an impression with our hilarious Merl the Squirrel cut-out and endless wall of game posters.
You can find Breen, our National Brand Ambassador, keeping track of our meetings at the hostess stand while Eric, President and Game Inventor, is busy talking to customers and explaining our new games.
If you wanted to know what’s NEW for family and party games for 2013, here is what will be hitting stores this summer:
1) Rob Delaney’s War of Words (ages 18+) a hilarious and slightly naughty board game centered around hundreds of Rob’s most entertaining tweets, which you and your fellow player will read aloud as you race around the board identifying ‘who wrote what’ and battling to see which player’s words are the funniest. (Available now for pre-order on Amazon)
2) Awkward Family Photos Picture Frame Kit The perfect picture frame for ANYONE who wants to celebrate their inner awkwardness, complete with plaques and a place to write your awkward story! (Now shipping)
3) Awkward Family Photos Card Game This hilarious card game combines creative, open-ended questions with all new cringeworthy photos featuring funny family portraits, unfortunate hairstyles, wedding, holidays. (Available July)
