In 1999, taxi driver Derek Carroll started thinking how it might be possible to create a trivia board game, where all the questions could be based on one City.
On the 5th December 2000 the “Edinburgh Taxi Board Game” was launched. With a very limited marketing budget, Taxi! went on sale in just 7 stores.
Taxi out-sells Monopoly and Trivial Pursuit in the Edinburgh stores of Jenners, John Lewis and Debenhams at Christmas.
With the Glasgow edition now launched, Taxi was on sale in over 40 stores throughout Central Scotland, achieving significant retail sales.
When the global financial crisis hit in 2007, a London Edition and further expansion plans were placed on hold.
The board game market is buoyant. With input of experts from the retail and board game industry, a new London edition was launched.
New website launched with eCommerce store, with games shipping internationally.
New games were launched onto the market, with New York City, Great Britain and Celtic Football Club being added to the range.
There are currently 12 editions of Taxi on sale with plans in place to launch further editions in the near future with additional sports team and city editions now in development.
With professional backers and the right team now in-place, Taxi! is looking forward to becoming one of the world’s top selling trivia board games.
