Z-Man has licensed the Choose Your Own Adventure book series, and its first release under the new license will be House of Danger, a collaborative storytelling puzzle game designed by Prospero Hall. "This is based off The House of Danger which is one of the bestselling books from the Choose Your Own Adventure series,” Bornmueller explained. "It’s a crazy story. You’re psychic investigators going and exploring this crazy mansion you've had dreams about. When you're there, you find monkeys, Civil War generals, counterfeiters and all kinds of crazy stuff." The game will be $24.99. Release is planned for summer.
Attack of the Jelly Monster is a real-time dice rolling game. "It's coming over from France from Libellud who do Dixit, Mysterium and Dice Forge," Bornmueller said. "You're rolling your dice trying to have the highest value dice left at the end of the very, very short 10 second timer to control it. Plays very fast, 10, 15 minutes, very frenetic." Release is planned for March. MSRP is $20.00.
Asmodee is also launching some new packaging for Timeline and Spot It in Q3. "Spot It is very similar, new color coding, it's still a round tin," Bornmueller said. "But Timeline will be a lower price point. They were $14.99. Now it's $9.99 and a round tin. Then a new look highlighting these historical figures on the packaging now and highlighting the line of cards which is the main mechanic of the game," said Bornmueller.
The classic strategy game History of the World will get an updated version in Q2. MSRP is $69.99.
Asmodee was also showing off Plaid Hat Games at Toy Fair (see "Intergalactic Planetary Samurai Mechs Battle for the Stars in 'Starship Samurai'").
