Goliath Group, a family-owned global toy and games company, announced the acquisition of the Game Night in a Can license from game inventors and creative studio, Barry & Jason Games & Entertainment. 

Game Night in a Can features 35 creative and physical challenges, based on popular segments from Barry McLaughlin and Jason Lautenschleger's touring live comedy game show. Audience favorites include Just Say Noah, where people were invited on stage to create new animal species and Frumpy Bumpers, a competitive butt-bumping game. 

The addition of Game Night in a Can further fuels Goliath's mission of creating moments of togetherness for all: Game Night in a Can has no limit to the number of players, a near-infinite possibility of gameplay combinations, and can be enjoyed by kids and adults of any age. 

“We believe that everyone is creative and we made Game Night in a Can as a way for people to express their creativity in a fun, easy way,” says Lautenschleger, in an exclusive statement. “It's always been a dream for Game Night in a Can to be expanded into multiple countries and targeted to fans of a variety of brands. As our partner, Goliath will help us realize that goal.”

“They really understand the vision of Game Night in a Can and the importance of inspiring creative thinking and imaginative play,” says McLaughlin. “They also play Frumpy Bumpers every chance they get, which we love.” 

Originally launched as a successful crowdfund project, the 5th anniversary edition of Game Night in a Can includes graphic design from longtime collaborator Chad Ford and a host of characters from artist Jade Wolf. 

“Adding Game Night in a Can to our broad party game portfolio perfectly aligns with our mission of spreading joy and togetherness across the globe,” says Brian Weiss, president, Goliath Group, North America. “It's a simple & portable game that has Barry and Jason's magic of bringing out the creative, silly spirit in all of us. This is the type of game that can create lasting memories – with friends, with family, no matter the age.”
