Movies that find itself as games like Monopoly and UNO usually are box office smash hits, but thanks to Barry & Jason Games and Entertainment, not-so-smash-hit-but-still-pretty damn awesome movie, Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (DreamWorks Pictures, 2004), is getting its own game too.
This is no fake news. Anchorman: The Game is real and it is currently being funded on Kickstarter where you can score a copy for as low as $26. But that’s only a reality if it meets its funding goal or more before the campaign ends in 20 something days. Here’s the gist of the game:
“Anchorman: Te Game, Improper Teleprompter is an adult party game where you sabotage the other anchors’ news stories to try and make them laugh. If they laugh, you score. If they keep a straight face, they score. Whammy!”
The premise of the game took advantage of Ron Burgundy’s susceptibility to read whatever pops up on the teleprompter, regardless of how strange or inappropriate, and thus triggering a series of hilarity.
The game is designed for 2-8 players of ages 17 and up. Each game includes 8 player cards, 120 news stories, a “Sex Panther” timer, 25 Whammy cards, 48 magnetic score tokens, and 600 magnetic words and phrases.
It sure sounds like fun, but perhaps with the fixed number stories, I am afraid it may get stale pretty quickly – unless you only play the game like a couple of times a year. Just saying… Anywho, if you are sold by the idea, you may want to check out the camping on Kickstarter to learn more this new fun game.
