British Game Designers - Accentuate Games Ltd
This accent game from Accentuate Games, makes an excellent home party games. Accent games for a family game night is guaranteed to be filled with smiles, fun and laughter.
Accentuate is also a fun party game and as it is based around accents, it is bound to thrill!
Created by Merseyside siblings, Graeme and Fiona Fraser-Bell, the Accentuate game is designed to mortify players into fits of giggles, or rather highlight the fun of accents.
Fiona and Graeme grew up on the Wirral and subsequently lived in many different corners of the UK and around the world. Graeme’s fascination with accents stems from his extensive travels. The inspiration for the Accentuate game came about over dinner in 2009, when Fiona told a French-themed story in her version of a Gallic accent, to the great amusement of all present. Laughter was infectious that night and was the reason behind the creation of this fun, team playing party game.
After polishing and perfecting the game over the following couple of years, the siblings tested the Accentuate game on friends and family. They soon realised they could combine their formidable sales, marketing and commercial skills, gathered over three decades in a range of business roles, with their love of games and laughter, to produce and market a unique party game.
After five years honing the game-play, Accentuate hit UK shelves in 2014. It was also important to Fiona and Graeme to develop a business and brand, that was truly British and are delighted to say that they achieved this goal with their Accentuate game, which carries the ‘Made in Britain’ marque. A key component and assembly team for this party game is based in Cornwall, with Accentuate HQ located on the Wirral, where the idea first developed. Fiona and Graeme's joint blog here explains more about the passion behind their imaginative and humorous accents game invention and their British workforce.
Following the launch, Accentuate was awarded ‘Bronze’ in the Card Games category of Toy Shop UK’s “Independent Toy Awards” and is the winner of the 2014 Rainbow Awards, accolades they are extremely proud of. Find out more about the story behind Accentuate, from concept to winning party game here.
