Pingo Pingo is a fast-paced dexterity game driven by a soundtrack. Players flip cards, and depending on the situation, will slap it, or not, depending on the time of day or night, which is determined by the soundtrack. If a card is slapped, the player must complete the action on the card in order to collect treasure from the space penguins that populate the island. The game is for 2-5 players, ages 6 and up, and plays in 15 minutes. Release is planned for late April. MSRP is $34.99.
Master Fox is a tactile shape-matching game. Each round players are assigned shapes to search for while blinded by fox masks. The first player who thinks they have the correct shapes calls time, and players take off their masks to check their figures. For every correct shape, they get a victory point, for every wrong one, they lose a victory point. The person with the most victory points at the end wins. The game is for 2-4 players, ages 10 and up, and plays in 30 minutes. Release is planned for late April and MSRP is $39.99.
Konito is a party game of completing each other’s sentences. A player starts a common phrase, like "There are plenty of fish..." and their partner finishes "in the sea." The game is for 2-12 players, ages 8 and up, and plays in 30 minutes. Release is planned for March 26th. MSRP is $29.99.
