LOS ANGELES, CA, June 17, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Interact Games LLC today, announced the summer kickoff of Personalogy, [Amazon.com, $20] a provocative, pocket-sized card game for ages 16 and older. The game was created by Los Angeles-based Michelle Burke and UK-based Lilamani de Silva. Co-founders of Interact Games LLC, Burke and de Silva sought to inspire and challenge people to put their electronic devices down and have a conversation. The game fits as easily as a smartphone in your purse or beach bag.
In a May 6, 2014 article in the New York Times reported that Amazon saw double-digit percentage increases on sales of board games from 2012 to 2013. Bruce Whitehill, board game inventor and editor of The Big Game Hunter, lauded Personalogy as a laugh-out-loud experience. "We were all laughing at the same time."
"Many of our questions are off-the-wall, some downright absurd," says Michelle Burke, author, communications consultant/strategist and co-founder of Interact Games LLC. "With the explosion of smartphones, the art of conversation borders on extinction. I noticed a trend when going out to restaurants or bars seeing people sitting together and just looking at their phones. We wanted to find a fun way to get people talking and laughing."
The game consists of 120 topical and intriguing questions, each with multiple-choice answers. Players are challenged to guess what answer their opponent will most likely select and why. Your 'opponent' can be your best friend, partner, sibling, those you just met at happy hour or simply a group of people vacationing together. Questions cover everything from lifestyle, pop culture, psychobabble, to sports and dating. Following is a sample question:
What candy best reflects my personality and why?
a. Snickers Bar
b. Everlasting Gobstopper
c. Hot Tamales
d. Champagne Truffle
e. Pay Day
"Personalogy encourages players to share stories," says Interact Games LLC co-founder Lilamani de Silva, a trained biochemist and former UK television producer. "The interactive component of describing the "why" is what generates surprises - even to long-married couples who thought they really knew each other. Personalogy improves 'face time' and is an antidote for road trips, planes, trains and vacations."
A photo contest launches today in which players post photos of the Personalogy game on Facebook in signature fun locations or vacation settings. Winners will receive free games or Amazon gift cards throughout the summer.
