Big Potato Games Releases OK Play
Which will be available to be played at Gencon in Booth: 2115
This summer, indie board games company Big Potato is releasing its new family-friendly travel game called OK Play. Big Potato is the only board game brand that is exclusive to Target. OK Play will be available at Target and on Target.com starting the week of June 19.
OK Play is super-simple to learn but tricky to win. It’s like an off-road Connect Four but for 2-4 players and to win you’ve got to sneak a straight or horizontal line of 5 tiles in a row. There’s no board to stop the game going off in random directions and if you run out of tiles, you get to reposition old ones.
With toughened plastic tiles and a handy carabiner, OK Play is made to travel. Don’t leave home without it.

Big Potato Games Releases The Chameleon
UK-based indie table top games company Big Potato are back with a brand new game called The Chameleon (http://thechameleongame.com/) , available at exclusively at Target and on Target.com starting the week of June 19.
It was recently crowned the ‘Best Party Game’ at the UK Games Expo which is the third largest games convention in the world, and was awarded The Dice Tower’s reputable ‘Seal of Excellence’.
The Chameleon is a family-friendly, social bluffing game, devised by legendary board game inventor Rikki Tahta, creator of Coup. If you are the hidden Chameleon, your mission is to stay undetected and work out the secret code word. If you aren’t the Chameleon then you must track down that elusive Chameleon without giving away the secret word. If the wrong person is accused, the real Chameleon escapes. If the Chameleon is caught, they have one last chance to escape by guessing the secret word.
Games are short and sweet, and full of flying accusations, quick-thinking and Sherlock-like deductions.
Big Potato will be appearing at Gen Con in August, the largest games convention in the world. They’ll be sporting a ‘Chameleon’ stand inspired by the game’s packaging, so be prepared for a grand optical illusion. The UK-based board games company will also be hiding 50 mini chameleons each day over the four days at the arena. If you’re lucky enough to find one, you’ll win a copy of the game.
