GameBrotherZ shows off new games at American International Toy Fair in NYC

NEW YORK, Feb. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- GameBrotherZ, the Canadian manufacturer of popular board games, is showing off its newest games at the American International Toy Fair in New York City (Booth #6363).

GameBrotherZ, the Canadian manufacturer of popular board games, has chosen the American International Toy Fair in New York City (Booth #6363) to introduce its latest innovation on the North American market: Spuzzle Strategy. (MSRP:C$34.95)

After watching Spuzzle®, Mister Mailman®, and Boo™ take off in more than 60 countries over the past four years, GameBrotherZ is shifting into hyperdrive this year with the launch of six new products.

MimiQ™

Make the right faces!

For the very first time, the original card game MimiQ™ will have visitors making all kinds of faces, as they are asked to "MimiQ" the expressions on the cards they need to win the game.

This card game is sure to be a hit with the whole family.

Each player has to ask opponents for cards by "MimiQ-ing" the faces presented on the cards. If they don't have the requested card, they have to stick out their tongue.

The player who gathers the most sets of 3 cards wins the game.

(MSRP: C$7.95)

The Spuzzle game family is getting bigger, to the delight of kids and adults alike:

Spuzzle Strategy®

Build your path with strategy!

Intended for families and children over 8 (2 to 4 players), Spuzzle Strategy is a fascinating puzzle game requiring players to put on their strategic thinking caps.

The goal is to build the longest trail of Spuzzle® pieces while impeding the progress of your opponents.

A ground-breaking innovation in both concept and design.

(MSRP: C$34.95)

Spuzzle Disney and Disney/Pixar

The crazy racing puzzle game!

Two years after the launch of Spuzzle Madagascar® (DreamWorks Studios), GameBrotherZ is breathing new life into the experience offered by its most popular game with four more Disney/ Pixar licenses.

So keep an eye out, because Spuzzle Planes, Spuzzle Disney Princess, Spuzzle Cars, and Spuzzle Disney Junior will hit the Canadian shelves as early as this spring.

(MSRP: C$19.95)

There are other innovations on the horizon, including the upcoming release of Taxi!Taxi!®, a mad dash through the city to be revealed in October at the Dallas show.

Not to be outdone, Mister Mailman and Boo are coming back better than ever:
Mister Mailman will get 3D figurines, and a new version of Boo will be introduced sometime this year.

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management.

There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos.

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using ...
