Life in the trailer park - A Kelowna company has unveiled the Trailer Park Boys board game and the goal is freedom 35.
The strategy for achieving the goal of owning the trailer park and retiring by age 35 is similar to themes found in the television series, requiring successful illegal practices and transactions to take place in the imaginary world of the game.
High Roller Games creators Derek Hodgins and David Phelps collaborated with Trailer Park Boys productions over four years to bring the game to consumers. The company strives to make games based on themes they are fans of, part of their determination to be passionate about their work and proud of the product.
"As fans of the show and as game designers, the goal was to create something that required strategy, luck and always escalated towards the end," said Phelps. "At the same time, the game had to be easy enough for a fan to enjoy that doesn't play board games that often."
The game consists of collectable figurines, personalized character cards, a large trailer park board featuring great shots of Sunnyvale and over a hundred detailed cards capturing various events from the show.
