SEATTLE â€“ October 28, 2010 â€“ Discovery Bay Games has launched two new board games created by actresses Daryl Hannah and Hilary Shepard â€“ Call-it! and Famous Last Lines. Call-it! is a fast-paced word-burst game and Famous Last Lines is a bluffing game based on the last lines of movies. This kind of creative innovation has recently earned the duo a Toy and Game Inventors of the Year Award for â€śRising Star Inventor of the Year.â€ť
In Call-it!, players test their swift thinking by flipping a card, matching a symbol with an opponent, and being the first to call out a word from their opponentâ€™s category card. Categories include body parts, sports, movies, and types of candy, to name a few. Call-it! was recently named one of Dr. Toyâ€™s â€ś100 Best Childrenâ€™s Products for 2010â€ť and was also included on Dr. Toyâ€™s â€śTen Best Audio/Visualsâ€ť list. Call-it! is easy to learn, making it great game night entertainment for all ages.
In Famous Last Lines, players read the movie title and plot and create their own â€śfakeâ€ť last line of the movie. Movie categories include Drama, Comedy/Romance, Action/Western, Sci-Fi/Horror/Mystery, Family/Animation, and Classics/Musicals. The object of the game is to bluff other players into selecting your last line. Players earn points by fooling others or by correctly guessing the true last line. Famous Last Lines was recently featured in the Gift Lounges for the Daytime Emmy Awards as well as the MTV Video Music Awards and was a huge hit among all the celebrities.
â€śDaryl and Hilaryâ€™s first game, LIEbrary, has been very popular,â€ť said Craig Olson, CEO of Discovery Bay Games. â€śWe are really excited to introduce Call-it! and Famous Last Lines in time for the holiday season. They are both great Game Night games.â€ť
â€śHilary and I were tired of seeing all the computer and video games out there. Our friends and family love playing board games where you can interact with each other and we have Game Nights all the time,â€ť said Daryl Hannah. â€śOur three games â€“ Call-it!, Famous Last Lines and LIEbrary â€“ are bringing the laughter and fun back into peopleâ€™s homes.â€ť
Both games are now available at Amazon, Nordstrom, and other fine retailers.
