‘Blue Orange’ Announces New ‘Fish Club’ Children’s Game For Holiday 2020 Gifting Season
New Two-Player Strategy Game From The Family Who Created Hasbro’s ‘Connect 4’ Makes A Perfect Gift This Holiday Season
Walnut Creek, CA (PRUnderground) September 21st, 2020
Blue Orange Games, a leading designer and manufacturer of tabletop games for the whole family since 2000, today announces the launch of a new children’s game titled Fish Club. Involving strategy and exciting unpredictability, Fish Club was invented by American film director, David Wexler, who is the son of Howard Wexler, creator of the famed children’s game Connect 4. Intended for children aged five and up, Fish Club is destined to become the next classic two-player game given its tie to such a beloved game for past generations of children and families.
“As we celebrate Blue Orange Games’ 20th anniversary in 2020, we are excited to highlight some of our incredible games and products ahead of the upcoming holiday gifting season, one of which is our new game Fish Club,” said Martin Marechal, CEO of Blue Orange Games. “A fun skill-building game to keep children entertained whether it is after school or during the weekends, Fish Club is a favored new game in Blue Orange Games’ catalog of products and we are proud of its unique connection to Connect Four and the Wexler family. Fish Club is a perfect purchase for parents, grandparents, friends, or family members alike to gift young one’s across the nation this year and beyond.”
The ultimate goal of Fish Club is to be the first of two players to connect five fish pieces in the aquarium. Unlike Connect Four which has a structured grid, Fish Club is more unpredictable as once the fish are dropped in from the top of the tank, they are able to bounce and move around the “water.” An additional unexpected element of the game is the use of blocker “sea creature” pieces which players can use to prevent their opponent from forming a full group of five fish. The game can be played again and again to see how to quickly link five fish and out beat one’s opponent.
Along with being fun, Fish Club is a learning game that can help develop children’s social skills, fine motor skills, focus and attention, visual perception, and strategy. Since the game’s industry debut in early 2020, followed by its summer 2020 consumer availability, the game has already been recognized as a leader among Blue Orange Games’ portfolio of products from both retailers and consumers alike.
Fish Club retails for $19.99 USD and is now available for purchase on Blue Orange Games’ online store. Additional retailers include various independent toy stores across the U.S., Barnes & Noble, Learning Express, Lakeshore Learning, Fred Meyer, Bartell Drugs, AAFES, and Amazon.
Blue Orange Games features a catalog of more than 100 games and has been honored with a variety of industry awards including those of Mensa, Major Fun!, Oppenheim Toy Portfolio, and Mom’s Choice Awards.
