The clouds above Springfield are parting to reveal the newest addition to The Op’s collection of hit social word games! Start singing the opening theme to Fox’s popular animated series and crowd the living room couch to play CODENAMES: The Simpsons Family Edition, available in stores now!
With its bright yellow box to match your favorite cartoon family, this nostalgia-packed version of Czech Games’ top secret word game is perfect for bringing slapstick antics into your home this holiday season. Featuring memorable scenes and characters spanning the series’ remarkable 30-year run, CODENAMES: The Simpsons Family Edition gives fans a chance to use their knowledge of the show to win this award-winning word and picture deduction challenge.
Players face-off from opposite sides of a grid made of double-sided cards, where they’ll find familiar faces such as The Simpsons family, Ned Flanders, Krusty the Clown, Millhouse, Chief Wiggum, Comic Book Guy, and many others! The Cluemaster on each side must guide their team to reveal the locations of secret cards, but only by using one-word clues and quantities.
That means you wouldn’t be able to isolate Bart, Mr. Burns, and Moe by saying “Left-handed, 3” even if your bank of obscure The Simpsons trivia made that connection! Years of catching every variant of Bart’s chalkboard phrases will come in handy for spotting where the right cards are, especially if you can remember to avoid where other clues didn’t work.
Leading the charge on side of the table is doltish patriarch Homer, with the opposing Team Bart trying to run away with the win. Fans will also catch tri-ocular fish Blinky supplementing the bug-eyed cast, find recognizable Springfield landmarks for the geographically keen, while followers of the Treehouse of Horror episodes can use their Halloween special savvy for a clue-giving advantage.
CODENAMES: The Simpsons Family Edition includes 200 illustrative Springfield Cards, 40 unique Key Cards, 25 Cover Cards for conceal locations, 1 Card Stand to share and view your objectives, and easy-to-learn Instructions. The game is made for 2-8 players ages 8 and up and available now for $24.95 from your favorite local game store or conveniently online. Thank you, come again!
