New story-based line offers epic escapades & great solitaire literacy boosters
Newton, MA – Looking for an antidote to the “summer reading slide?” Gamewright has just the solution: Cardventures – a brand new series of games that play like interactive books where you control the story! Start each Cardventure by selecting a card and reading the narrative text. Then choose one of the options at the bottom, which leads to another card. Follow the story from card to card until you reach an end point. Then play again by choosing a different start card for an entirely new adventure!
Gamewright launches Cardventures with two titles: Stowaway 52 and Jump Ship! In Stowaway 52 you’ve snuck aboard an alien ship that’s about to attack Earth and it’s up to you to stop it. In Jump Ship! you take on the role of a pirate captain, leaping from ship to ship in search of treasure. Both titles not only make great parent-child “read together” activities but are also wonderful tools for luring back reluctant readers. They are a must-have for developing language and vocabulary, as well as enhancing decision making skills. Cardventures are for one or more players, ages 8+ and are available in stores now, with a suggested retail price of $9.99.
