Vancouver, BC – (June 17, 2011) – Griddly Games has some Oversight to know the right moves for colorful game play this year, when the company releases its new abstract strategy game, OVERSIGHT.
An all-new, original game, Griddly Games’ new Oversight (MSRP $19.95, for 2 – 4 players ages 7 and up) is a fast-paced 4-in-a-row game. With a 4-color checker style block board, Oversight adds movable squares and tokens (with patterns adorned for color-blind, color challenged players) for a completely fun challenge to outwit your opponents to get four in a row.
Because the game is based solely on getting the four in a row, the game is ideal for international and multi-language availability. The directions are printed in English, Spanish, German and French.
Reisa Schwartzman, president and founder of Griddly Games, said. “Oversight is a colorful twist on a classic game strategy. Oversight is a simple concept, but when each player has his or her own vision of where the 4-in-a-row will be formed, the colors may not line up as planned. It’s classic game fun.”
To play Oversight, players, on their turn, can either place a token on the board, or shift an entire row or column of moveable squares over by one space. The rules are simple but the game gets increasingly challenging as players learn from their mistakes and predict their opponents’ moves.
Oversight joins Griddly Games’ Wise Alec family trivia game, Words of the Wise and Chronicles of the Mind brain games, and the company’s Griddly Headz™ sports-themed strategy games that include the top-selling Griddly Headz NASCAR® Racing Game, Griddly Headz Baseball and Griddly Headz Hockey.
