WWE fans across the UK now have the opportunity to become part of the electrifying global pop-cultural event, WrestleMania, by playing a new WWE board game.

Manufactured by the award-winning board game creator Rachel Lowe MBE, WWE: Road to WrestleMania has players take on the role of WWE Superstars such as John Cena, Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, or Becky Lynch as they compete to rack up wins.

The game will see players compete agains each other at some of WWE’s most popular shows including Raw, SmackDown, and NXT to reach the Grandest Stage of Them All – WrestleMania. They must use thier best moves to defeat other players, in the brawl for the WWE Champion title.

The game is launched alongside a 500-piece puzzle featuring fan favourites Sasha Banks, Randy Orton, and Charlotte Flair, plus a deck of playing cards. Items are available for order on www.rachellowe.co.uk with a guaranteed delivery before Christmas.

“WWE has a passionate and devoted global fanbase who are drawn to these fantastic athletes and the excitement of the dramatic, action-packed storylines,” said Lowe. “I’m thrilled to work with WWE and bring this game to life so thousands of fans across the UK have the opportunity to become part of this exciting world.”

Lowe launches WWE: Road to WrestleMania just a few weeks after being awarded the Game of the Year by the Toy Retailers Association (TRA) for the Jumanji board game.

Lowe launched the Jumanji board game in December 2017 and it quickly became a smash hit reaching the top of the UK Amazon ranking in the board games category two years running alongside Cards Against Humanity and other best sellers.

“I am absolutely delighted to receive the Game of the Year award for the Jumanji Board Game. The feedback we’ve had about the game has been wonderful so to receive this award as well is just fabulous.

“It recognises the hard work and effort I put into getting it to the number 1 ranking on Amazon and the hard work of my distributor, Heathside Trading, who achieved volume sales throughout the duration of my contract with Sony,” added Rachel.

“The success we’ve had has established a good foundation of distribution for my new licenses and we anticipate similar success with our new board game: WWE Road to WrestleMania and our Call the Midwife board game, puzzle and playing cards which are all available on www.rachellowe.co.uk and will have national distribution in 2020.”
