Racy Neapolitan festive game comes to London

Neapolitan Tombola

Rossopomodoro are inviting Londoners to play the historical (and rather racy) Neapolitan game ‘La Tombola’ this Christmas to win prizes.

Traditionally played by Italian families at Christmas, ‘La Tombola’ is a board game much like bingo but every number has a meaning. Usually played with cards and dried pasta Londoners are being asked to tweet a number daily with which they associate and if their number matches the daily draw they win a meal for two with wine.

Will tweeters choose number 17 “The Misfortune/A Disgrazie” after misbehaving at their Christmas party? Perhaps number 21 “The Naked Lady/La Femmena Annura” might be more apt if the party went particularly well or what about number 16 “The Bottom/’O Culo” on which you’d rather be sat and not out Christmas shopping.

If you would like further information on La Tombola experience
please do not hesitate to contact Krista Booker

About
La Tombola was born in 1734 out of a battle between King Charles III of Bourbon and the Dominican Friar Gregorio Maria Rocco. The King was willing to make the lottery official in the Kingdom because it would have increased funds raised by taxes; by contrast the Friar considered the lottery an amoral and misleading leisure. The King was successful, of course, but only on the condition that during Christmas time the game would have been suspended to not distract people from prayers. Unwilling to give up on the game, Neapolitans turned a public game into a more intimate and familiar one: the 90 numbers matched as many meanings and those of the Neapolitan tombola are the most allusive, smutty and sometimes raunchy. Nowadays at Christmas time the game is played in homes throughout Napoli for lighthearted festive fun. That said, gambling on the outcome is often involved and, when passionately competitive Neapolitans get together, heated arguments can be expected. Well, Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without family squabbles.

Prize
A daily prize announced at 10pm. If the number matches the draw you win a meal for two with wine.
A Christmas Day Draw will act as an accumulator and all daily entries will be matched against 5 numbers, the closest match will win a Pizza Masterclass for 5.

How to Enter
Choose your number from the Rossopomodoro Pinterest Board and tweet @RosspomodoroUK including #NeapolitanTombola

EKACHAI Launch Interactive Wall

Ekachai Interactive Wall

Our client Ekachai is completely refurbishing the interior of their Wandsworth restaurant that is located on the upper concourse of Wandsworth’s Southside Shopping Centre. Narrative, the design team, are making huge changes such as covering the roof in bamboo and hanging almost fifty light fixtures imported from Indonesia.

As well as a new look there will also be a new menu with additions such as ever popular Cantonese Char Sui Bao, Thai chicken classic Kai Krapow and Roti Canai fried Malaysian pancake. The re-launch is planned for early July however between now and then they have to fully cover the exterior in large dull hoarding.

To reimagine this temporary drawback we commissioned The Outside Collective to create an interactive mural running along the entire length of the 13m hoarding. Ekachai also provided the collateral of 500 meals for us to giveaway.

Our focus for the interactive wall was to reflect the profile of Ekachai; a Southeast Asian restaurant specialising in authentic Cantonese, Thai and Malay street food served in an informal, honest and fun environment. The cuisines’ styles were illustrated by a scene from each area in geographical order moving from morning until night. We then made these scenes interactive to promote engagement and social media promotion of the re-launch. The Hong Kong scene features über-sized chopsticks, Thailand conical hats and Malaysia a becak bicycle. Instructions on how to use the wall are positioned at the top of the mural, to the side and also on an A board.

Yesterday Fourteen Ten spent time at Southside wearing Ekachai uniforms and encouraging passers-by to pose with the items on the wall. Some interacted, some didn’t but the first thing people did when walking past was to look at the wall, stop and smile many enquiring about the re-launch of the restaurant. We also spoke to lots of customers who were disappointed (and some angry!) to find their local restaurant was temporarily closed which was an interesting observation on numbers of regular diners.

Follow the entries using the hashtag #Ekachai.

WANT TO ENTER?

To win one of 500 free main-meals passers-by can select between Hong Kong, Thailand and Malaysia pose with the chopsticks, hats or bicycle and upload a photograph on either Facebook, Twitter or Instagram including the hashtag #Ekachai.
