WARNING: FURT BOARD GAME CAUSES BELLY LAUGHS AND CRAZY STUNTS
San Diego, CA – June 15, 2011 – Just in time for the holidays, Wiggity Bang Games, creators of the award-winning Quelf, have introduced FURT, a new party game sure to inspire fun and frivolity at any tension-filled family gathering.
It’s an all too familiar holiday scene for many: a peaceful family dinner and Dad gets on his political soapbox, Aunt Flo wants to know if you have anyone “special” in your life and Grandma can’t stop talking about her diverticulitis. Now there’s hope. FURT, a befuzzling, laughter erupting game, promises to be the antidote to tense moments and inappropriate questions.
In FURT, players race to be first into the fiery mouth of the FURT volcano with each roll of the color-coded die. Along the way, they might find themselves speaking like a robot, impersonating a stamp collector, doing fork acupuncture on their neighbor, or acting like a sugar donut, just to name a few.
“FURT is perfect for game nights, girls’ nights, family get-togethers, road trips to Vegas, frozen winter evenings in the Midwest, high school detention, prison riots, peace treaty talks and jury duty,” said Matthew Rivaldi, Wiggity Bang Chief Dang (aka president). “Any gathering that needs a good laugh added into the mix should be a FURT occasion.”
FURT has six unique categories that ask players to unleash their hidden talents, reveal things about themselves and crank up their imaginations, including:
In addition to the cards, FURT has some other wacky components in play:
Players win by being the first to make it to the mouth of the FURT volcano and withstanding the ultimate Straight-Faced Challenge, in which other players take turns saying funny words to try to make them laugh.
FURT will have a suggested retail price of $29.95 and will be available online and from select retailers starting in July 2011. For more information, visit http://www.wiggitybang.com.
