CARLSBAD, Calif. – June 9, 2020 — Usaopoly (The Op), announced today that it has signed a licensing agreement with Asmodee to release licensed versions of Spot It!, a multi-award winning pattern recognition game that launched in 2010 to universal acclaim.
Also known as Dobble, the quick-playing family game is most recognized by its uniquely illustrated deck of 55 circular cards, each featuring eight various symbols. With always one symbol in common between any two cards, the game’s fast-acting objective is to be the first to spot a match and grab that card, prompting the next in the deck to be revealed, then quickly surveyed and claimed. Once the deck is depleted, the player with the most collected cards wins.
“Spot It!’s appeal, especially amongst families and kids, lines up perfectly with The Op’s long history of bringing fun games with a pop culture twist into American living rooms and kitchen tabletops,” explains Michael Goncalves, Head of Zygomatic Studio, which is the Paris-based division of Asmodee responsible for the release of the successful Spot It! franchise.
“This collaboration between Asmodee and The Ops will add even more eye-catching and unmistakable visuals to the mix, making Spot It! not only a challenge of perception and dexterity, but personally enjoyable for fans to associate their favorite characters with victory,” says Heather Campbell, Vice President of Sales at The Op. The leading board game and puzzles publisher looks to release several Spot It! games this fall in North America with a $14.99 MSRP.
Longtime fans and newcomers are encouraged to spot the forthcoming brands via The Op’s Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter feeds, and find out where to buy on The Op’s website. For more information about Spot It! and other Asmodee products, visit www.asmodeena.com.
