Funko expands business with board game studio

Pop culture specialist acquires Forrest-Pruzan Creative as it eyes further growth.

Funko has further expanded its business, with the acquisition of board game development studio, Forrest-Pruzan Creative.

Based in Seattle, FPC specialises in game invention, game design and playtesting. It has developed a number of board games incorporating licences including Disney Villainous, Harry Potter: Hogwarts Battle, Bob Ross – Art of Chill and Choose Your Own Adventure – House of Danger.

“We’ve always been incredibly impressed with FPC’s portfolio and have witnessed the company make a name for itself on a global level,” explained Andrew Perlmutter, president of Funko. “As we expand our product portfolio, we believe this acquisition is in line with what we are doing with apparel, accessories and Funko Animation Studios.

“The games category is another avenue to deliver pop culture to our ever-growing fan base.

“FPC’s nearly two decades of experience in developing high quality games will provide us added expertise as we leverage our existing IP and licensor portfolio into this category.”
