(PRUnderground) December 29th, 2020
What are you doing for New Year’s this year? With safety concerns and cautions in place, the folks at Griddly Games are seeing a trend for New Year’s Eve as possibly THE biggest family game night in history. In particular, Griddly’s Rocket Lander game seems to be taking off as a New Year’s platform of entertainment.
“At home entertainment has been essential this year, and we’re seeing indications that New Year’s 2020 is the ultimate culmination of that fact,” Reisa Schwartzman, President of Griddly Games, said. “It’s been a year like none other – in many ways. While we are very proud that our company has been a resource to families this year, we are really seeing our games move quickly for the end of the year.”
Among the variety of games from Griddly, its Rocket Lander title seems to be blasting off in time for 2021. Rocket Lander (MSRP $27.00 for ages 10+), a recent MENSA Select Winner, is a spatial strategy game with a fun outer space theme. In the game, players control a group of rockets exploring the world and outer space. Each player has to embark on an epic mission to settle and build the greatest rocket station. Using dice and plotting (x, y and z axis) points, players coordinate best landing spot for their rocket, while overtaking opponents and defending home turf.
“Rocket Lander is great for multiple ages to play together. It only takes a few minutes to learn to play, and the total playtime is under 30 minutes,” Schwartzman explained. “It’s ideal for families to play together. Even multiple rounds.”
