VISIT J&Bs AND PLAY THE SQUID GAME:  LOVE SEAFOOD PARTNERS WITH ISLE OF WIGHT FISHMONGER TO GIVE AWAY HUNDREDS OF POUNDS WORTH OF SEAFOOD

The shape you have chosen is the shape you must pick out

 28 October 2021 UK: Fans of the ultra-popular Netflix series Squid Game are being given a chance to win free seafood – maybe even some squid – as Love Seafood partners with Isle of Wight based J&Bs for its very own “Squid Game” this Saturday, at 111 The High Street, Cowes, from 9.00am-12.30pm or while stocks last.

The rules are simple. In a fishified homage to the classic honeycomb carving scene in the show, a giant poster bearing symbols that will be familiar to fans has been placed on the wall of J&B. Players simply need to pick a symbol, then choose a card from the fishmonger. Should the symbol they have chosen match the card they pick, they will win a £10 voucher to spend on seafood. There are £250 worth of vouchers available.

In a twist on events, repercussions for those who don’t beat the J&B team should be no worse than the mild sting of disappointment at not pocketing a £10 voucher.

Love Seafood is on a mission to bring on better living by encouraging people across the UK to incorporate more seafood into their diets. The team has devised the giveaway to help people discover the amazing simplicity and versatility of fish and shellfish.

Tracy Mowlam, owner of J&Bs, said: “We’re part of the 111 million people across the globe who’ve watched Squid Game, so when this opportunity came up, we jumped at the chance to get involved. We’ll have an amazing selection of tasty seafood available this weekend, including squid, so come in, try your luck, and you might just walk out the door with something delicious to cook for your tea for free!”

Greg Smith, Player 456 at Love Seafood said**: In my town, we have a game called the “Squid Game”. The rules are simple. A seafood fan walks into a fishmonger, where there is a poster on the wall. The poster has four symbols on it, which correspond to cards held by the fishmonger. In order to win, the seafood fan picks a symbol from the poster then chooses a card from the fishmonger. If the symbols match, they win and yell out, “Victory”. At that moment, they’ll feel as if they own the entire world, exhilarated. If they lose, they are eliminated.”

**Greg Smith, Head of Marketing for Love Seafood actually said: “We love when opportunities arise for us to partner with the UK’s incredible independent seafood businesses. A show with such universal popularity, that just happens to be called ‘Squid Game’, is an opportunity too good to miss! At Love Seafood we aim to ‘bring on better living’ by encouraging people across the UK to explore the huge variety of nutritious, versatile, and most of all delicious seafood we have access to. We think this game, a literal Squid Game, is a really fun way of doing that – thankfully, with none of the potential consequences we’ve all seen on the show! Good luck to everyone who takes part.”

Love Seafood are always on the lookout for passionate seafood champions, companies and organisations to get involved with campaigns. To find out more visit https://www.seafish.org/promoting-seafood/love-seafood-consumer-brand/#z-get-in-touch-4
