The Simpsons. It’s amazing to think about how long that cartoon has been part of our world. Hell, I’m betting that many of you reading this have literally always had The Simpsons as part of your life. I remember when it started. I wasn’t allowed to watch it as a kid, but I did watch it later on. Seasons 1-10 are sitting on my DVD shelf as I type this. But soon, I’ll be able to add a Simpsons box to my board game shelf as well, as USAopoly has announced Codenames: The Simpsons.
From the announcement:
TV’s favorite family is ready for game night with Codenames: The Simpsons! The longest-running animated comedy is celebrating 30 years of hilarious and dysfunctional antics comes to one of the best tabletop party games and right in time for the holidays!
The fun, easy to learn cooperative word and picture deduction game for 2-8+ players will be featuring your favorite characters from The Simpsons. Including Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, Maggie, Mr. Burns, Ned Flanders, Principal Skinner, Krusty the Clown, Moe, Milhouse, Ralph Wiggum, Chief Wiggum, Comic Book Guy, and many more! Players help their teammates locate secret Agents who are concealed among a grid of The Simpsons series references using only one-word clues.
In Codenames: The Simpsons, two teams compete to see who can make contact with all of their agents first. Spymasters give clues which can guide their team to multiple cards on the board. Their teammates try to guess words of the right color while avoiding those that belong to the opposing team. In Codenames: The Simpsons, win or lose, it’s fun to figure out all the clues!
