A GAME created by a Hucknall inventor has gone global — and has been wowing experts at the Nuremberg International Toy Fair in Germany.

Culica is the brainchild of JAMES EADON (pictured), of Station Terrace. It is a unique puzzle game.

Last year, the Dispatch reported on James bidding for cash on the TV show ‘Dragons’ Den’.

His attempt failed but they had the last laugh by landing deals with world-renowned toy store Hamleys in London and the Lakeland chain to stock the game in their stores.

Now Culica has been revealed at the Nuremberg event, which is one of the biggest toy fairs in the world.

It features 2,600 exhibitors from 64 countries and attracts 76,000 visitors from 115 countries.

The appearance of Culica in Germany is part of James’s ambitions to have his invention on the shelves of every toy and hobby shop in the world.
