Buffalo, New York – Buffalo Games, LLC and BuzzFeed, the world’s leading digital media publisher, have teamed up to release a new line of party games under its new BuzzFeed Games imprint. The initial launch will include three games available Fall 2020: BuzzFeed 2000’s Trivia, BuzzFeed Listicles, and BuzzFeed’s Tasty- Cooking Chaos.
The set of games provide a fresh and fun twist on the BuzzFeed content that the internet has come to know and love. Each game was created with input from BuzzFeed editors who translated their viral digital content into an IRL experience, enabling BuzzFeed’s massive audience to enjoy their content in a brand new way.
“BuzzFeed is all about driving human connection, and through the BuzzFeed Games imprint we’ll extend our reach beyond the screen and spread joy IRL to our community through lively game nights,” said BuzzFeed’s SVP of Licensing Eric Karp. “We’re so fortunate to be able to team up with the brilliant folks at Buffalo Games to bring this project to life.”
BuzzFeed 2000’s Trivia is a game designed to test your millennial status that will have players scrambling to remember obscure moments from the past decade. It features over 400 questions crammed with pictures, trivia, and challenges based on the movies, TV, toys, tech, and trends of the 2000’s that are frequently featured in BuzzFeed posts. This game is for 2+ players ages 14 and up.
Listicles, a frantic race to compile a list based on hilarious categories, pays homage to the unique and wildly specific list articles that BuzzFeed popularized. Players race the clock to create unique lists based on categories like things your rich friend had growing up and people you wouldn’t want to be trapped in an elevator with. Players gain bonus points by starting their list items with the letter designated for the round and can score extra points if they come up with the most WTF or OMG item!
Cooking Chaos is a collaborative kitchen cook-off featuring popular comfort food recipes from Tasty, BuzzFeed’s massively popular global food brand. In this game, players race to collect ingredient cards to make dishes like the famous bacon-wrapped mashed potato-stuffed meatloaf. To emerge victorious, players have to overcome obstacle cards like a Burned Tongue (no talking until you finish your next recipe: charades only) or a Cut Finger (only use one hand until you complete your next recipe).
“We are thrilled to be partnering with BuzzFeed on this line of games. We are confident that combining BuzzFeed’s unique voice and signature style with our experience creating fun and engaging games will result in a set of games that people will want to play again and again,” said Buffalo Games Vice President of Marketing and Product Development Ben Jamesson. “Working with BuzzFeed will allow us to tap into the hundreds of millions of people that love their content globally and give their massive audience a fun new opportunity to experience and engage with BuzzFeed.”
Listicles will be released exclusively at Target and 2000’s Trivia and Cooking Chaos will be available at major retailers in Fall 2020.
The entire Buffalo Games 2020 product line can be seen at New York Toy Fair, February 22-25, 2020, at the Javits Center in NYC, Booth 251.
