Cryptozoic announces ROFL
Cryptozoic has announced a new party game: ROFL!
John Kovalic’s in line to direct.
From the announcment:
Cryptozoic Entertainment™, the premier developer of original and licensed games including The Walking Dead Board Game and Hot Rod Creeps, is proud to partner with John Kovalic, one of the minds behind “Apples to Apples” and the pen behind the hilarious Munchkin illustrations, for ROFL! Wild and quick to play, ROFL! is a hilarious party game of mix-communications sure to delight gamers of all levels. Players battle it out, trying to condense well-known phrases, and have the Guesser decipher the message, as quickly as they can!
“Between texting and instant messaging, people are always condensing words and phrases,” said Scott Gaeta, chief operating officer for Cryptozoic. “ROFL! is perfect for today, because it takes what we already do and turns it into a hilarious and competitive game.”
To start a game of ROFL!, players see a phrase card, while the Guesser does not. Players compete with one another to accurately relay the secret message on the phrase card in as few characters as possible. Everybody gets to be a Guesser once per round. Whoever scores the most points at the end of three rounds wins!
