Wil Wheaton Announced As Bicycle’s Global Board Game Ambassador
Today, the Bicycle brand is excited to announce the signing of actor, writer, and board game enthusiast Wil Wheaton as its first global board game ambassador. In his role, Wil supports the new “Games By Bicycle” line of board and card games. Bicycle is partnering with Wil, who for years has been an advocate for expanding the board game hobby to new audiences.
As the creator, producer, and host of the wildly successful web series Tabletop, Wil is credited with reigniting an interest in board games. Wil’s career highlights include roles on the hit TV Series Star Trek: The Next Generation and more recently, as a fictionalized version of himself on CBS’s The Big Bang Theory, one of the most highly rated and watched sitcoms of the last decade.
Like Wil, Bicycle continues to invite more people to the board game table. This past year Bicycle launched multiple games including Tattoo Stories, a drawing party game where your art skills don’t matter. The game was designed by schoolteacher Eric Slauson to inspire students to be more creative. Players compete in a series of quick-paced tattoo competitions.
For people who want a little less party and a little more strategy, Games By Bicycle is bringing The Alpha, and Exchange to store shelves around the country. In The Alpha, players lead a wolf pack on a hunt to become The Alpha pack. When multiple packs hunt the same prey, they must decide to fight or share bringing heart-pumping excitement to the game. In Exchange, players must outwit opponents to corner the stock market and become the player with the highest net worth.
In addition, Bicycle will be launching Adult Party Games: The Sweet & Spicy Truth and Nailed It in July.
