Kind of catchy, isn’t it? This simple motto speaks to what we were originally all about – bringing friends and families together to play games, laugh and share some fun. We firmly believe that this type of entertainment adds to the shared experiences that friends will remember forever.
Today, Wiggles 3D brings its rich history of playing games together at the table to a variety of modern children’s, family and party games. We’ve introduced award-winning trivia, strategy and word games. We believe in putting quality and care into every game we design and publish. We have an amazing team of game designers who really know how to craft a fun game experience. Most recently we have begun to put our skills to work by inventing games for other publishers to introduce to the market. This represents a shift from self-publishing to the inventor side of the industry. At times we may try new channels to get some key learning, as we did with 5 Minute Dungeon’s very successful Kickstarter campaign.
The last few years have brought significant change to the game category, driven largely by the popularity of mobile devices. We’ve embraced this new style of game with the creation of several apps. Some are dynamic versions of our board game titles. Others are fresh titles created just for mobile game players. Check out the App section of our site to see our popular QuoteSlide and Eye Know titles. We’ve even reinvented the jigsaw puzzle with our VENN series of apps.
WEB & PRINT
Game players also enjoy playing puzzles in their daily newspapers and online. Beginning with our Don’t Quote Me brand, we actively syndicate puzzles or quotes to millions of readers daily in publications such as USA Today and in Canada’s largest newspaper, The Toronto Star.
For more fun you can search for great quotes in our database through our Facebook page or sign up for a daily quote to get you started each morning.
Enjoy your visit to the Wiggles 3D website. We trust that you’ll find some games to help answer the question “What will we play tonight?”
How Did We Get Here?
We’ve been creating innovative games for over 15 years. Along the way, we’ve introduced over 35 titles and won many awards, including two from Mensa. We’ve had our popular Pass the Popcorn game bought by toy maker Mattel, the award winning Bellz magnet game is now part of the Spin Master family and we have licensed games to the many major publishers worldwide.
But how did we get started?
Wiggles 3D was created in 2001 to build a world-class brand around famous quotations. The idea was partially formed in my youth, when my father, Jim Reid, would use quotes to entertain his customers or to get a point across. These quotes were often his own and some were real head scratchers. One of my favorites – “It might as well be lost as in a place you can’t find it” – is a classic in the Reid clan.
The evolution of this family pastime to founding a company took 30 years. It wasn’t until a vacation with our friends Mike and Ruth Marcuz that the idea of building a game and a brand around famous quotations took root. From there, it was a giant leap to the creation of the Don’t Quote Me brand, which now entertains millions of players every day through our board games, our newspaper puzzles and online games.
And now it is a great pleasure to share this adventure with my son, Connor, who is a lead designer and the creative force behind 5 Minute Dungeon. It is his first authored title, and one of many more to follow.
It’s an exciting time for the game industry and we look forward to seeing where the path leads us from here! Stay tuned.
