Gamewright Gives Us a Sneak Peak Into 2011 Product Line

In anticipation of the 2011 American International Toy Fair taking place in New York this February, Gamewright has given us a sneak peak into a few of their 2011 games that will be debuted at the conference. Ranging from kid friendly board and card games to adult and family friendly games, Gamewright is sure to have something for everyone.

Here is a quick look at what to expect from Gamewright this year:

Splish Splash!

The Game That's Swimming With Fun!

2 - 4 players * Ages 4+

Jump right into this lively game that's sure to make a splash! Roll the die and then drop the wooden pebble into the pond. Did any colorful shapes splash out? If so, match them up to your playing board. Be the first to fill up your board and then dry off with a win!

Playing time: 15 minutes
Availability: Spring 2011

Mermaid Beach
A Very Splashy Card Game
2 - 5 players * Ages 6+

Soak up the fun down at Mermaid Beach! Swim along with Swirly Shirley, Betsy Bubbles, Rip Rider, and a colorful cast of undersea characters as you try to collect the most seashell cards. Watch out for sneaky waves and icky seaweed along the way. Most of all - don't get caught holding the sea monster at the end of the game!

Playing time: 15 minutes
Availability: Spring 2011

City Square Off
Plan to Win
2 players or teams * Ages 8+

Go head-to-head against your opponent in this tactical game of city planning. Draw a shape card and then simultaneously try to fit the matching tile into your city grids. Plot wisely, as you must always have space to play your next piece. Build your city without going over the limits and consider yourself the master planner!

Playing time: 15 minutes
Availability: Spring 2011

The Switching, Swapping, and Swiping Card Game
2 - 5 players * Ages 8+

Flip out for this colorful card game of back-to-back excitement! Switch, swap, and flip cards in order to get at least four-of-a-kind in a row. Sounds easy, but the cards in your hand are not necessarily your own! Every card is double-sided, so anyone can take and use any card in sight. Collect the most cards and, no matter how you look at it, you win!

Playing time: 15 minutes
Availability: PRE-ORDER NOW!

Knock Your Blocks Off
The Game of Wall-to-Wall Fun
2 - 4 players * Ages 8+

Stack 'em up ... Knock 'em down! First, race to build a structure by matching up the patterns on your blocks. Then use the demolition die to knock off your opponent's crown! Depending on your roll, you may get to attack with an avalanche of boulders, a wall-smashing ogre, or even a fire-breathing dragon! Rack up the most victory points and crown yourself king of the block.

Playing time: 15 minutes
Availability: Spring 2011

Coming off the 2010 success of Forbidden Island and the continuing success and awards for Rory's Story Cubes, Gamewright's 2011 offerings look to continue the trend. We can't wait to see what else they have in store!
