Brussels, June 5, 2023 – Repos Production today announced their newest hilarious tournament-style party game, Champions!, from legendary designers Grégoire Largey, Franck Crittin and Sébastien Pauchon. Champions! will be available in US hobby stores and online beginning June 23, 2023.
Who likes pineapple on their pizza – Marilyn Monroe or Sherlock Holmes? Who writes corny poetry – The Little Mermaid or Elvis? In Champions!, players will try to predict the outcome of each duel and the overall tournament champion through competitive debate and silly persuasion. Then, players vote for the most expected winner of each duel and earn points if their character wins. Finally, votes are tallied and the Champion is crowned.
"We are generally better known for our strategic games," explains Franck Crittin. "A party game is a work of distillation. Everything seems obvious... but it's far from simple. The challenge of Champions! was to create unlikely duels without resorting to vulgar or dubious humor."
"Party games bond people, they create common memories," continues Sébastien Pauchon. "Once, I played to discover new games. Now, it's the people I play with that interest me. The players make the game, that's for sure. A party game shared with the right people is an unparalleled experience."
Champions! is expected to be another major success from Repos Production and each round of brings laughter and persuasive debating to the game table. Fans of award-winning party games like Times Up! and Cards Against Humanity are sure to love Champions!.
