A Dickens admirer and board game enthusiast family from Cardiff, Peter Gerring and sons, has recently launched a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter for its new innovative “Scrooge The Board Game.” Inspired by the classic “A Christmas Carol,” this latest survival tabletop game promises hours of fun and entertainment for the players on their way to defeat “Scrooge.” The game is to be delivered just in time for the holiday festivities coming this Christmas.
The crowdfunding campaign is geared to launch £15,000 by October 5.
“We are eager to present you with a new survival board game for all the tabletop game lovers around- and it would be a bonus if you are a Dickens’ fan as well. ‘Scrooge The Board Game’ is a modern take on the iconic author’s legendary characters where the players can slip into a plethora of iconic characters immortalised by Dickens to ‘out-Scrooge Scrooge.’ This amazing fun-filled game will take you to 56 London streets lit up in vintage light where you will interact with innovative cards on your journey to beat Scrooge in Moment of Truth Challenge. It’s specially designed to be uniquely competitive, strategically challenging, and completely unpredictable. Our ambition was to produce an exclusive one of a kind adventure that will come up with a unique feel every time. The game assures hours of fun for the entire family and amazing memories that will last a lifetime. Now, we are looking forward to mass production, hence this crowdfunding campaign. Your generous support will help us to develop the game and deliver them to families before Christmas”, stated Simon Gerring, Head Scrooger, and son of Peter Gerring.
The game can be played both by children (8+ years) and adults. The first one to out-Scrooge Scrooge will be the winner. The entire package of Scrooge The Board Game comes with over 150 cards, including Ghost Cards, Tricks Cards, Nightmare Cards, Heroes and Villains Cards, Scrooge’s Money-Box cards and Character Cards. Additionally, there are 18 various street interactions, six playing pieces, game board, colourful rulebook, symbol sheet, two dice, Gold notes and street symbols. A simplified variation of the game also comes with the package for novice and kid players.
“If you ask me about the USP of the game, well, there are not one but multiple factors. First, the game carries a wide appeal and can be played by almost every member of the family. Then, it makes the whole thing even more thrilling with great tactical card management scopes to control outcomes. Besides, it’s one of the rare games where you can deploy multiple strategies to win. And yes, every time you play Scrooge The Board Game, it’s a new experience. You are going to have a sensational adventure this Christmas with family and friends and our game.”
