Classic Hasbro Game BOGGLE Coming to New TV Game Show
Entertainment One (eOne), with Keller/Noll and Hasbro Studios, announces the new series, Boggle Battle. The game show takes the classic Hasbro game BOGGLE and turns it into laugh-out-loud, yell-at-your-TV family fun. The show taps into the love of dedicated BOGGLE fans and introduces the game to a whole new audience. The head-to-head competitive fun with friends and family starts with Boggle Battle.
Reinventing the classic game, show creators Cleve Keller and Dave Noll (Chopped, Winsanity!) combine the BOGGLE game's inventive gameplay with pop culture topics to create a fast-paced, laugh-out-loud television experience. Boggle Battle puts contestants' pop culture knowledge to the test, as three teams of three face off in elimination rounds with categories ranging from Harry Potter or Marvel to GAME OF THRONES or the NBA.
Gameplay is intense and takes place in the new super-sized, bright and colorful version of the BOGGLE board. With increasing levels of difficulty and multiple rounds of elimination, the series features play-along moments for viewers at home. Each episode builds towards one team moving on to play a final round of Super BOGGLE, and a chance to win big prizes.
"With impressive visuals, new categories and the clock always counting down, Boggle Battle will add a new level of hilarity and excitement to the game show world," said Cleve Keller and Dave Noll. "Viewers and contestants alike will be stumbling over each other to shout out creative answers while trying to beat the clock."
"The BOGGLE game has always been a crowd favorite, and Cleve and Dave have a found an innovative and engaging way to bring the addictive game to television," said Tara Long, EVP, Alternative Programming, eOne Television. "The unique, fast-paced gameplay will appeal to audiences in the US and around the world."
"The BOGGLE game is fast-moving, challenging and fun and has been a mainstay of game nights since it was introduced in the 70's," said Josh Feldman, Co-Head of Storytelling at Hasbro Studios. "Boggle Battle will appeal to the many die-hard BOGGLE fans around the world."
