Techno Source Continues the Revolution in Gaming|
Range of Interactive Games for the Entire Family Being Showcased at the February American International Toy Fair in New York City, Booth #3055
New York, February 17, 2008 – Techno Source continues to revolutionize gaming at the American International Toy Fair (February 17 – 20, 2008 in New York City) with the unveiling of Guess What I Am! ™, an interactive, fun family game that incorporates role-play and classic guessing exercises while helping to develop kids' deductive reasoning skills, and X vs. Y, an electronic battle of the sexes game for adults.
The company also will introduce new tabletop and handheld versions of its popular Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader?™ game as well as Phase 10®, the first electronic version of the best-selling, rummy-like card game. All items are expected to be in store for fall 2008.
"This is going to be an exciting year for us at Techno Source," says Eric Levin, Executive Vice President of Techno Source. "Following on the heels of our successful launch of the award-winning Rubik's Revolution™, we are continuing the gaming revolution by adding creative, new offerings in many categories that appeal to every member of the family. X vs. Y is a fast-paced, edgy tabletop game for adults that is sure to get everyone talking at parties and couple get-togethers. Guess What I Am! ™ is our first non-electronic, interactive game, which we expect to become a staple on the game shelf."
2008 Product Highlights:
Guess What I Am! ™ is a tabletop game that puts a hilarious new twist on a classic guessing game. Place your face through the space of the mystery card, transform into one of 30 silly characters, and let the guessing begin. Roll the die to ask yes or no questions like "Do I play sports?" or "Do I have fur?" to narrow down the list of possible characters. Keep track on the tally pad and cross off the characters to figure out who you are. First player to guess correctly wins. It features four games in one and is simple enough for kids to play alone or with their friends. Ages 3+, $15.99

Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader? Tabletop Game is an electronic tabletop based on the top-rated TV game show, Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader?

The clever tabletop game is shaped like a chalkboard and features a wireless remote that resembles an eraser. The remote allows players to "beam" in their answers, use the cheat features, or drop out—just like real TV show contestants.

Players must correctly answer 11 questions in a row to win one million dollars, but this time there are no classmates to help. So one wrong answer ends the game. Its pocket-sized pencil shape design with built-in key clip allows players to take the Pop Quiz Edition with them anywhere. The game features five subjects with 500 questions. Ages 8+, $9.99
Phase 10 is an electronic version of the best-selling, rummy-like card game. It allows players to take on 1 to 3 computer-controlled opponents.
