Blank Slate

The Op Games has announced its popular title Blank Slate has received Circana’s Toy Industry Award for #1 Selling Toy in the United States in the Family Word/Other Games category. The awards recognize the best-selling and top selling toys, properties, and manufacturers across the United States, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, and Europe, according to Circana’s Retail Tracking Service.


“We are honored that Blank Slate is recognized as one of Circana’s top selling games,” said Eric Brendel, VP of Sales at The Op Games. “We recognize our retailer partners who have helped The Op Games reach this great achievement and we also appreciate all the consumers who have played and shared the fun and laughter of playing Blank Slate.”


“As we begin a new year, Circana is incredibly proud to celebrate the innovation and quality of toys and games being developed to inspire the joy of play around the world,” said Ricardo Solar, EVP of Entertainment at Circana. “We wish all the winners, and the entire toy industry, success in 2024.”


Blank Slate is an award-winning word game that challenges players to pick one of over 250 Word Cue cards (with 500 total cues), write the word they think best completes the phrase, and try to match it exactly to another player’s word without giving a single hint. Blank Slate, which was also recently turned into a game show, is available at major retailers with a suggested retail price of $25.99.
