Black Mirror is this generation’s Twilight Zone. It gives us worlds that seem pretty normal, but then there’s always something sinister lurking just below the surface. In the episode Nosedive, people look to create a perfect social life while avoiding “dings” to their reputation. Now, Asmodee will be releasing a card game that mimics the episode. The game will be exclusive to Target stores and Target.com, with the game hitting shelves on the 25th.
From the announcement:
Global content producers Endemol Shine North America and gaming publisher and distributor Asmodee North America announced today the launch of NOSEDIVE, the first-ever social board game inspired by Emmy Award-Winning Netflix series Black Mirror. Modeled after the iconic episode of the same name starring Bryce Dallas Howard, NOSEDIVE players are challenged to create a “perfect” life by collecting Lifestyle Cards, while avoiding any “dings” to their Social Score.
Integrated with the free NOSEDIVE smartphone app available on iOS and Android, the game includes over 1,000 unique experiences to impress players’ important friends and improve their social standing.
NOSEDIVE features light social and strategic gameplay that is engaging, interactive, and accessible for new players.
