Warner Bros. Consumer Products, Warner Bros. Television Group and Cryptozoic Entertainment™, the premier developer of original and licensed games including the World of Warcraft® Trading Card Game and The Walking Dead™ Board Game, are proud to announce the official launch of The Big Bang Theory: The Party Game, based on one of the studio’s hottest television comedy series, (airing Thursdays 8/7c on CBS and five nights per week in syndication). The all-new game is now available in hobby and retail stores nationwide.
“The Cryptozoic partnership allows us to keep fans connected to The Big Bang Theory through this engaging and interactive experience,” said Maryellen Zakaras, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Marketing and TV & Studio Licensing, Warner Bros. Consumer Products. “Giving fans this new way to enjoy their favorite program builds loyalty and continues to drive excitement for one of the most-watched shows on television.”
Players of The Big Bang Theory: The Party Game will compete to pair category cards with show phrases and references. Points will be awarded based on judging and ranking the card combinations; the player with the most points wins. The game also features special Bazinga! cards that add a bit of chaos and surprise to the gameplay. Every card offers a different The Big Bang Theory moment, complete with photographs from the show.
“With its incredible combination of characters, smarts and wit, The Big Bang Theory is directly in line with our gaming fans, and a game based on this amazing series makes perfect sense,” said Scott Gaeta, Chief Operating Officer for Cryptozoic Entertainment.
Designed for three to seven players (ages 15 and up), The Big Bang Theory: The Party Game will be available at retailers nationwide, including Amazon, ThinkGeek.com, Barnes & Noble, Hastings and f.y.e. – for your entertainment, for an MSRP of $29.99.
