Cryptozoic Entertainment™, the premier developer of original and licensed games and John Kovalic, one of the minds behind Apples to Apples and the pen behind the hilarious illustrations of Munchkin, today announced the release of ROFL!, a hilarious party game of mix-communications for gamers young and old.
“Between texting and instant messaging, people are always condensing words and phrase,” 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!
"What I love about ROFL! is that even people who don't text at all have a terrific time with it: it's easy to play, with thousands of possibilities. Like all my favorite party games, the laughs and table-talk continue long after a round is played,” said John Kovalic, ROFL! game designer and illustrator. "I'm excited to be working with Cryptozoic on ROFL! as their commitment to quality is obvious in every release. I'm a huge fan of their family of games."
ROFL! is a lively game of crazy phrases and wild guesses, perfect for three to seven players, ages 12 and up. It only takes a few minutes to learn, and plays in half an hour or less, making ROFL! perfect for parties and other social gatherings.
ROFL! comes complete with 170 phrase cards, a card holder, seven colored tokens, seven colored dry-erase boards, seven dry-erase markers, a game board, 56 scoring chips, a rules sheet and a timer. Plus, ROFL! includes 5 blank cards so players can add their own phrases to the game. Finally, the high quality, reusable components mean less pencil and paper is wasted than in other games.
