Twisted Fish memory game wins Creative Child Magazine’s Game of the Year

June 8, 2009

Creative Child Magazine recently named McNeill Designs’ original game “Twisted Fish” the Best Family Game of the Year for 2007. Creative Child Magazine is a bi-monthly publication that provides parents with the latest information on how to nurture their child’s creativity.

As Best Family Game of the Year 2007, Twisted Fish was one of over 1,000 products reviewed by Creative Child Magazine’s child play testers and a panel of judges including child psychologists and child educators.

The game, released in 2006, takes the old favorite “Go Fish” and casts it into the 21st century. “Twisted Fish offers guaranteed laugh-out-loud fun for the entire family and features outrageously humorous fishy characters, as well as tantalizingly unpredictable Zinger cards,” says company President Martin Uniacke.

Twisted Fish also showcases original illustrations by Hollywood special-effects artist Jody Fedele, providing a unique glimpse of what’s really going on under the sea. “The characters parody the good (and bad!) in human behavior,” explains Fedele, “and keep players laughing at their fishy antics.”

Game play also involves the use of “Zinger cards” which offer a unique opportunity for a complete reversal of fortune. “The inclusion of the Zingers means that game play is unpredictable and your luck can change at any moment,” says Uniacke. “Divine Intervention,” “Two-Fisted Fisherman,” and “Dead Scuba Diver” are just a few examples of hilarious Zinger cards that add an extra element of fun, suspense, and difficulty.
