There is a HUGE announcement from Out of the Box that I’ll post Sunday, when it’s announcd at the New York Toy and Game Faire.
I’m serious. In the hobby gaming world, this announcement will be very, very big.
I won’t be going to New York year – too much work to do, here. Especially on the British Apples to Apples edition. And anyway, it’d be too sad, now that the 2nd Avenue Deli is officially closed.
But anyhoo, here’s some of the cool new games that Out of the Box will be showing at New York this year.
I think this is our strongest lineup of new games ever, and I’m really excited about all of these…I can’t wait to own my own copy of each and every one. Especially Cineplexity, Pepper, Abridged and 10 Days in Asia…
The perfect companion to the Apples to Apples Party Box.
The fun continues! Mix the 576 new cards from a Party Box Expansion Set with the cards from the Apples to Apples Party Box for thousands of new and outrageous comparisons!
Can you name a film taking place over the holidays that also features a character in a uniform? Then Cineplexity is the movie game for you! Each round, players race to name a movie that matches the descriptions on two different Cineplexity Cards.
A Revolution in Bridge!
Abridged is a streamlined version of the classic Bridge card game. This engaging and easy-to-learn game uses newly designed cards and plays just like Bridge—but without the complex bidding.
A Whole New Ball Game!
Pepper is the innovative new card game that sends the action in all directions! Throw a ball to anyone’s territory and see if they have what it takes to respond. Find players that can’t handle your throws and win!
Pepper…Can you handle it?
