Have some old-fashioned fun with board games based on The Twilight Saga
Posted on July 1, 2010
Perfect fun for a rainy day or summer picnic.
Yesterday saw the first releases of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, and it was shown in a record number of theatres throughout America. But what do you do now you’ve seen it (apart from seeing it again!) or are still waiting for its release? Well, you could watch the DVD’s again and re-read the books, or you could try something new with these awesome Twilight-inspired board games.
The Twilight Board Game is pretty straight forward, and you play by answering trivia questions about the movie and moving around the board, collecting Scene cards as you go. The New Moon version is pretty similar, but now the Volturi and Quileutes pose a challenge for you. Not only that but now you need to know more about the people you’re playing with as well as the film to earn Scene cards and win the game.
The Eclipse one is the same again, but this time you’ve got to defeat Victoria and the Newborns in order to collect the Scene cards. There was quite a bit of buzz when this game first hit the shelves since it featured over 100 images from the film on the cards, more than had been released by Summit at the time. This one also comes with Cullen and Volturi crest playing pieces.
If you want something a bit more modern than a simple board game, why not try the Scene It? games. First up you choose a playing piece for your team with a choice of Charlie’s house, a baseball, Bella’s truck, and Edward’s piano. Then you begin playing by answering traditional trivia questions and DVD-based puzzles, using Fate cards to throw your opponents off course. And the DVD is hosted by head of the Cullen clan Carlisle (Peter Facinelli), featuring hundreds of video clips, sound bites and images from Twilight.
And to add to the excitement of Eclipse, Scene It? have just released a Twilight Saga version of the DVD-based game. That means there’s three films worth of trivia, clips and images as well as three times the fun. New features include mini-games and bonus activities, meaning this is a lot more than your average movie trivia game. Perfect to pass the time on rainy days or take along on a picnic, we can’t wait to get our hands on the new Eclipse board game and Twilight Saga Scene It?
