COMMERCE, Calif., Aug. 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Ultra PRO International (Ultra PRO), the leading manufacturer and supplier of memorabilia, collectibles and tabletop gaming accessories announced today two new party games releasing soon, Fake News or Not?™ and #AlternativeFacts™.
In today’s world of click-bait headlines from unconfirmed sources, how can anyone uncover the truth? By taking what is real and fake into their own hands and having fun while doing it! Whether you listen to the nightly news or get your daily info from Twitter, take a break from the madness and bring some humor back with these witty social party games.
Fake News or Not?™, designed by Reinhard Staupe, is the captivating game about phony funny stories and ludicrous true tales. Set in today’s political climate, players can be a legendary news anchor or fact-finding fact-checker. The challenge is to use deduction, evaluation, and logic to identify who’s telling the truth and whose pants are on fire. This is a game for know-it-alls, wiseacres, and lovers of interesting and trivial knowledge.
“When Fake News was presented to us, we knew it was the right time and game to launch this summer,” said Dan Rowen, Senior Director of the Playroom Entertainment Division of Ultra PRO. “This game brings family and friends together no matter what side of the aisle they are on causing people to yell with excitement instead of disgust. The designer and our team spent over a year collecting real stories from around the world and players have such a fun time trying to determine which are fake news stories and which are not.”
Designed for two to six players and with an affordable MSRP of USD $20.00, Fake News or Not? comes with 200 double-sided cards and easy to follow instructions for game rounds lasting from 30 minutes to an hour each.
#AlternativeFacts™, created by Ryan Miller, is a party game that is a clever take on the current news where players craft creatively concocted and hilariously erroneous headlines that riv
al any late-night Twitter posting. In the spirit of keeping things social, if players tweet the headlines they create using the #AlternativeFactsGame hashtag and it comes true, Ultra PRO will send them on a free trip to Russia! This could be a fake or real offer; you’ll have to play to find out!
“When Ultra PRO Entertainment gave me the #AlterativeFacts idea, I knew this would be a fun product to develop,” said Ryan Miller, Game Developer. “A quick, creative party game that has some craziness in it to reflect the political landscape we are seeing unfold today.”
“#AlternativeFacts is simple to learn and provides straightforward card play that makes it easy for players to grasp quickly. It provides a fun social experience that lets you create laughable headlines,” said Sean Lashgari, Senior Director of Ultra PRO Entertainment. “As an added bonus, it comes in a high quality Ultra PRO Deck Box. You can take it on-the-go as it’s easy to carry and a great game when you’re looking for something to enjoy in a casual setting.”
At USD $10.00 MSRP, #AlternativeFacts comes with 134 cards and is the perfect game for two to four creative minds to bring back some humor during these stressful times!
