Award-Winning Game Publisher, Breaking Games, Announces Revolutionary Self-Rolling Dice & New Games at Toy Fair 2016

Along With Nearly 10 New Games, Breaking Games to Unveil Boogie Dice, the World's First Sound-Activated, Self-Rolling Dice; Booth 6411, First Level

NETCONG, NJ--(Marketwired - Feb 11, 2016) - Breaking Games, an award-winning game publisher and manufacturer, announced at Toy Fair this year that they will be launching nearly 10 new games, along with a true game changer, Boogie Dice, the world's first sound-activated, fully balanced, electronic self-rolling dice.

"Ad Magic launched its publishing arm -- Breaking Games -- at Toy Fair last year. In just one short year, we've published nearly 15 games and have won several industry awards," said Shari Spiro, CEO of Breaking Games. "At this year's Toy Fair, not only are we introducing a multitude of family, educational, adult, and strategy games but we are beyond excited to debut Boogie Dice, the world's first self-rolling, sound activated, programmable, gaming dice. Our goal is to bring games -- whether a board game, card game, new technology -- in a way that's new and refreshing, so people will be continually entertained."

Breaking Games is at Booth 6411, First Level, where it will have many of its game developers there to explain and showcase their game, along with Boogie Dice. Slated for October 2016 launch at an MSRP of $45, Boogie Dice was designed as a universal gaming accessory and can replace any standard static dice. Users clap their hands, snap their fingers or bang the table, and the dice will start to "boogie." Boogie Dice are jam-packed with unique features and abilities, including sound detector, motion sensor, timer, and randomizer. 

"Boogie Dice has already been getting a lot of attention from the gaming community and influencers," said Boogie Dice creator, Nimrod Back. "Together with Breaking Games, we'll be able to provide much better dice, but more importantly, we'll be able to release more Boogie Dice-based games and increase the value for each Boogie Dice player."

About Breaking Games
Founded by Shari Spiro of AdMagic -- the company that manufactured Cards Against Humanity and Exploding Kittens -- Breaking Games is dedicated to getting our client's games into the hands of people who love to play them. We are unique in that we promote the game and the designer above the company because they are the stars. We encourage our designers to guide the process of marketing with their own unique insight, while providing vital support for manufacturing, planning, shipping, warehousing, customs entries, GST and VAT, and sales. We are unique in that we prefer as many designers as possible demo live at our booth if they are available to travel. We partner with some clients rather than publish -- because many prefer this and would prefer to have us stay "in the game." All designers have different needs and we try to tailor our agreements to the designer.
