Griddly's Rocket Lander Takes Off

Richmond, BC - (February 13, 2018) - Griddly Games' latest board game, Rocket Lander, launched in late 2017 and is taking off among strategy game enthusiasts and STEM fans.

Because of its space theme, and its math strategy elements, Rocket Lander has quickly 'landed' a faithful following and earned accolades for its fun, and educational, game play. Rocket Lander has already received awards from Family Choice and Dr. Toy, and has now been selected for participation the 2018 MENSA Mind Game award testing.

Reisa Schwartzman, President of Griddly Games, said, 'Rocket Lander is unlike other games because players develop their own strategy in each game to plot the best placements for their rocket to land. Every time you play, your strategy has to change.'

Rocket Lander (MSRP $26.95 for ages 7 and up) is a dice component game with an out of this world, explosive theme. Rocket Lander challenges players to strategically plot a graph on a 3 dimensional axis. The game topic travels through space and around the globe as players escort their ships, search and overtake opponents, and defend a home turf. Of course, the best strategy and a dash of luck help to decide who can land their ship efficiently. Rocket Lander was created by world-renowned game designer, Martin Nedergaard Andersen, who also designed Griddly Games' highly successful word game, Show Me The Kwan.

Other games in the Griddly Games' family of award winning products include Oversight, Show Me The Kwan, Wise Alec™ board game, Wise Alec™ Junior, Wise Alec™ Expansion Packs (Body Works, Bright Ideas, Civilize This, Nature Nuts, and Sports Buffs), Rainbows and Storms, Words of the Wise and Chronicles of the Mind, and the company's Griddly Headz™ NASCAR®, Baseball and Hockey sports-themed games.
