NEW YORK, Nov. 26, 2012 /CNW/ - Imagination will release Fifty Shades of Grey: Party Game, a new party game, approved by author E L James, that allows all players to "Release their Inner Goddess!" This is the first in a series of fun, social party games that will be available in the U.S. and Canada, United Kingdom and Australia on Monday December 10, 2012. The game will be released internationally in time for Valentine's Day 2013.
The three novels in the Fifty Shades trilogy (Fifty Shades of Grey, Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed) are published by Vintage Books in the U.S. and Canada and by Arrow in the U.K. and have collectively sold more than 50 million copies worldwide.
Romantic, liberating and totally fun, the Fifty Shades of Grey: Party Game will entertain and surprise you as it reveals how you see your friends and how your friends see you. All players listen to the vanilla style question before secretly voting on which of the eight pre-determined friends they believe is best matched to the question. When everyone's ready the answers are revealed for all to see! Once all the 'Oohs' & 'Ahhs' have died down any player that picked the same friend as the reader wins an Inner Goddess token. Bonus tokens can also be won, and watch out for the special 'Twitchy Palms' questions that are worth double! The first player to collect 20 tokens wins the game and a ride in Charlie Tango ... if only!
"We are delighted to be partnering with E L James on this project," said Shane Yeend, CEO Imagination. "The Fifty Shades books are a bona fide cultural phenomenon, and they offer an exciting new play pattern for our range of party games that allows everyone to finally reveal their Inner Goddess."
And players that want to add a little extra spice to their Fifty Shades of Grey Party Game can also buy the 'Red Room' Expansion Pack that promises to raise the temperature in this fun party game, and will have everyone talking long after the game has finished.
The game will be available from pre Christmas at Amazon.com; Barnes & Noble; Books A Million; Calendar Club; Hastings & Urban Outfitters in the USA and other major retailers. In the UK at ASDA, JD Williams & WH Smith. Pre orders can be placed at bn.com and www.amazon.co.uk.
