This holiday season, give the Boomer in your life the perfect gift, Boom Again; the “cultural trivia” board game from the creator of Taboo, Outburst, and Super Scattergories. If you have a Baby Boom parent, friend or relative on your holiday list, you know how difficult it can be to find a gift that they can really appreciate. Boom Again will take those Baby Boomers back to warm, fun memories of growing up—and breaks he mold of conventional trivia games.
Boom Again is packaged in a “cigar box” — just like the ones where Boomers kept their prized possessions. Authentic touchstones become the game tokens, including a real metal skate key, the center insert adapter from a 45 rpm record, a “Students For Kennedy” campaign button, a Vietnam-Era dog tag, and a working roach clip. The game even includes a “Boomer’s Little Helper” magnifier, just in case players forget their readers.
This board game will be perfect for our upcoming friends game night, reliving the time when we grew up. Enjoying see how much we have retained from those years to answer fun questions.
About Boom Again:
He’s the guy who conceived Boom Again and assembled and led the team all the way to here.
Brian Hersch is actually a pretty famous game guy. He invented Taboo, and Outburst, and Malarkey, and Super Scattergories, and over 40 other games that have been published. His games have sold over 50 million copies – so fair to say he knows how to craft a fun game.
Brian’s Boomer credentials stretch back to two appearances on Kids Say the Darndest Things. Fifty years later, in a chance airport chat, Art Linkletter assured him that a second appearance only happened if a kid was a smart ass the first time!
Boom Again speaks directly to the generation who grew up in the ‘50s, ‘60s, and ‘70s. Designed to be played by two players—or two teams, Boom Again features over 2,200 questions drawing from advertising slogans and jingles, politics and social movements, movies, music, and television. The game takes players on a journey from The Twist right up to Disco; from American Bandstand to Soul Train; Doris Day all the way to Janis Joplin; poodle skirts to mini-skirts; from Hula Hoops to The Pill. It includes the anti-war movement, the sexual revolution, and the drug culture that were a huge part of every Boomer’s life experience.
The content is arranged in highly accessible categories:
Things We Heard — Music, jingles, famous speeches, lyrics, catchphrases
Things We Saw —TV shows, movies, commercials, magazines, sporting events
Things We Learned in School —The “3 R’s,” clubs, dances, school yard games
In The News — Politics, sports, world events and conflicts, Sunday comics
Stuff We Learned On the Street — Backyard games, fashion, cars, social changes, dances.
The game retails for $45.00 (which includes shipping and handling in the continental United States) and is available at BoomAgain.com.
