LOUDONVILLE, N.Y., Feb. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- "I Know New York," a new board game produced in the USA, is available in a New York minute for those looking for a game with a challenge.
From Manhattan to Niagara Falls, "We'll capture the imagination and harness everyone's ability in 'I Know New York'," said John Sahler, vice president and general manager of the parent company Nut Island, LLC.
The company's first board game, "I Know New York", is a fast-paced, multi-player board game based on New York trivia. It has taken two years for a team of six writers to create the game and the woman-owned business plans to produce several more games in 2014.
Based on New York State trivia, the game is both informative and entertaining. Did you know there are a wealth of attractions as well as people, animals, and more to discover in New York. "With this game, players can challenge themselves, their family, and their friends. It's both competitive and informative. It's impossible not to learn something while you play," said Mr. Sahler.
Playing this unique board game allows anywhere from 2 to more than 12 players -- as single players or as a team -- to test and expand their knowledge of New York State. Topics include New York geography, people, history, arts, sports, natural history, and pop culture -- plus an "I Know It All" category. "I Know It All" allows the player to win the category of their choice when answered correctly.
While creating the game, research led to the discovery of some unusual sports in New York including roller derby and hot air ballooning. There are a total of 785 question cards in this board game.
"We believe that the more you know about New York State, the more you will love it. Did you know that New York is home to the largest park in the contiguous United States, was the first capital of the U.S. and has its own sauerkraut prince and princess? Plus, New York has sent four presidents to Washington," Mr. Sahler said.
Game play features surprising reversals of fortune, interesting pictures and graphics, and easy-to-read text. Various options change the length of the game. The categories within the game include:
- A "Know It All" category for brainiacs.
- Multiple-choice questions for the rest of us.
- And, a "Raider" option for the fiercely competitive.
Based in Loudonville, NY, a suburb of Albany, the company is committed to quality products made in the USA.
Anyone who would like to purchase the game, or retailers who would like to add "I Know New York" to their product line, should contact Nut Island at www.nutisland.com.
