Bye, Felicia! but Say Hello to a New Game from Big G Creative

Bye, Felicia! The Game

Saying goodbye has never been so fun! A new party game from Big G CreativeBye, Felicia! incorporates the pop culture phrase in a fun and fast-paced game of wild word associations. For ages 12 and up and available now at Target, the game requires players to mind-meld with friends and family to guess what others are thinking.

Bye, Felicia! challenges great minds to think alike or at least guess how they think! Players have 30 seconds to list as many answers as they can before time runs out. The topics are random and range from “Foods You Eat with Ketchup” to “Bad Habits,” giving every round the potential for lots of laughs. When someone has an answer that doesn’t match another player, everyone says “Bye, Felicia!” good heartedly dismissing the person from that round of gameplay.

The game’s objective is to match as many answers as possible with the other players to stay in the round the longest. Scoring tokens are collected each round and the person who collects the most tokens overall, wins the game!

For three to eight players, Bye, Felicia! takes twenty minutes to play and includes 200 cards, 40 scoring tokens, 8 in/out chips, one pad of paper, 8 pencils, one die, one sand timer, and instructions.

Available now at Target stores nationwide and Target.com, Bye, Felicia! The Game sells for $17.99 SRP. Published by Big G Creative, the game was invented by Peggy Brown.

Fireside Games’ Stringamajig Gets a New Release Date of June 17

Stringamajig

Fireside Games has announced that a new street date has been set for Stringamajig and the Stringamajig Launch Kits.

Stringamajig is a party game that’s part drawing and part charades with a string. Each player is given 60 seconds to draw a shape with a loop of string, move it around, and interact with it, trying to help other players guess that word and as many other words in the time allotted.

Stringamajig can be played remotely in teams, so it’s also great for people restricting their movement right now.

Stringamajig is Out this April from Fireside Games

Stringamajig

Fireside Games will release Stringamajig this April. Stringamajig is a party game that’s part drawing and part charades with a string. Each player is given 60 seconds to draw a shape with a loop of string, move it around, and interact with it, trying to help other players guess that word and as many other words in the time allotted.

Selecting the words to draw is constrained by the numbers on the back of the next card on the top of the deck. Sometimes the person drawing will be able to choose from among all 4 words on their card, sometimes between just 2 words, and other times the game decides which word must be drawn.

When the drawer is ready, they flip the sand timer, grab the string, and start drawing. They can make any kind of drawing and then start interacting with it, such as strumming a guitar, moving the tentacles on an octopus, and twirling the rotors on a helicopter. The drawer can’t make any noise, and part of the string has to remain touching the table while they animate their drawing. Otherwise, the drawer can get crazy with it. The game really shines with the creative drawings and funny interactions with the string.

The other players call out their ideas and when a player guesses the word correctly, they are given the card, and the drawer quickly moves on to their next drawing.

When time is up, the drawer gets a point for each word that was guessed correctly, and each player scores 1 point for each correct guess they made.

There are also 3 types of Challenge Words in the game that are harder to draw, but worth 2 points if guessed.

  • 2-Player: Make the drawing in the air with another player.
  • Don’t Look: Draw with your eyes closed.
  • Forbidden Word: Guessing a certain word costs a card.

After everyone has had 2 turns as the drawer (or 1 turn in a 7+ player game), the game is over and the player with the most points wins.

Stringamajig is a great way to introduce new players to the hobby and provide experienced players with a creative challenge between heavier games. Stringamajig will hit stores in April 2020. The game plays in 20 minutes, seats 4–10 players ages 13 and up, and has an MSRP of $19.95.
