Mattel Toys has launched ‘Silicon Valley Startups’ which is a card game that involves pitting “Entrepreneurs” against each other to pitch hysterical and unique startup ideas to “Investors.” The brand has partnered with Daymond John, Co-Star and Investor on ABC’s Shark Tank, for this new game. With all the pitch ideas being decided through random card draws, players must use their improvisation skills to win in this game.
Ray Adler, Senior Director, Global Games at Mattel says “Silicon Valley stereotypes have fully infiltrated pop culture – from movies to TV shows – you can’t escape the startup culture and now it’s time to bring it to the game aisle. Silicon Valley Startups combines the creativity needed to pitch a startup with unexpected hilarity in a group setting – and because everyone thinks they have the next big idea, this game is for everyone.”
