Rachel Lowe unveils Beano board game to celebrate Dennis’ 70th anniversary


Released by Rachel Lowe and licensed by Rocket Licensing for Beano Studios, the new game will celebrate 70 years since Dennis first appeared in the comic.

The game sees players take turns to journey around Beanotown and try to complete pranks whilst avoiding being caught by the teacher. Perhaps a whoopie cushion will be dropped at Mount Beano or a custard pie will splat the walls of Bunkerton Castle. The first player to prank six different locations will win the game.

The Beano is the longest running British children’s comic magazine and in August 2019 celebrated its 4,000th issue. Seventy years ago, Dennis first appeared in the comic and has been loved by children and adults from around the world ever since.
