Jeopardy!, Tension, This That & Everything and Urban Myth

Has your 'life' become nothing more than a 'trivial pursuit'?  Has your time become 'monopolized' and mundane?  Are you ready to take a 'risk' and take-on a new 'operation'?

The best way to do that is to expand your mind, face new challenges and increase your knowledge.

Forget TV, movies and video games.  What you need is a good old-fashioned dose of game play and Outset Media has just the games for you!

Each and everyone is guaranteed to test your knowledge, perfect your gaming skills and hone your competitive edge.

Four new games will challenge you and your entire family, ages 12 and up.

My wife and I are big fans of the TV show Jeopardy!.  Most evenings we sit and watch and match our knowledge against the contestants.  Unfortunately Jeopardy! only comes on once a day so its not always convenient for us to watch as we may have other things to do that take up our schedules.

Never fear! Outset Media has the answer with its new Jeopardy! Deluxe Edition that proves every bit as exciting and challenging as the TV version.

One player is the host while other players take on the tough questions derived from all different areas of knowledge such as history, popular culture, etc.

Just like the TV series players play Jeopardy!, Double Jeopardy! and Final Jeopardy!-all of which are timed.  The game includes 252 Cards, 6 Game Stands and 1 Bell.      

Feeling a little tense?  You ain't seen nothing yet! The Tension game ups the ante as it challenges you to make 10 correct matches in under 60 seconds!

All gamers have to do is match the answers on game cards!  It's fast, fun, frantic and frustrating!  It's Tension. Two hundred Double-sided Cards, an Answer Tracker, a 1 Minute Sand Timer, a Game Board and 2 Pawns are included.

Is your team up to the challenge?

So you think you know it all?  Want to prove it?  This That & Everything will put your knowledge to the test as you attempt to describe six people, places and things in 30 seconds!

It takes a real team effort and lightening fast answers to win this game.  Do you have the brains to pull it off?

Game contents include 396 Cards, a Score Pad, a 30-Second Timer and Instructions.
Are you ready for the truth?  The truth is in here with Urban Myth.

Not everything you've heard or read it true.  Many of the things we take as facts are nothing more than hearsay and products of overactive imaginations.

In Urban Myth you're tested to determine if you can tell the truth from myth.

Two or more players must differentiate between pop-culture myth and fact in a game that is sure to challenge just how savvy gamers are.

Completely unique, Urban Myth includes 6 Game tokens, 6 True/Myth Voting Cards, 500 Game Cards, 1 Game Board and 1 Instruction sheet.

As with all the new Outset Media games Urban Myth comes packaged in a heavy paper stock box that will stand up to years of play, colorful game pieces and cards and easy-to-follow instructions.

I can't wait to play each game with my friends and family.  All the game provide a great way to learn new facts while having a wonderful time with those we love.
