Funskool India become the official partner of Goliath Games to manufacture and distribute ‘Sequence’ across the country
Funskool India Ltd., India’s leading toy manufacturer, adds another blockbuster to their list, by acquiring the rights from international brand Goliath to manufacture and distribute their popular board game ‘Sequence’, in India.
Developed by Doug Reuter in 1981, Sequence is a combination of a board game and a card game. Often referred to as the ‘Perfect Family Game’, Sequence can be played by 2 to 12 players. The game aims at building strategy, planning, sportsman spirit and team play along with providing quality entertainment.
Taking inspiration from the ‘Make in India’ initiative, Funskool India has been expanding their base and challenging themselves to widen their association with international counterparts. The new rules on mandatory certification from the Bureau of Indian Standards for import of toys, makes Funskool India a perfect partner for international toy manufacturers to entrust their iconic games to be manufactured in BIS certified Funskool factories.
