What Would You Do for a Klondike Bar?® New Game Draws Inspiration From Famous Challenge

All Things Equal Partners With Klondike® to Create Board Game Based on Iconic Slogan

MIAMI BEACH, FL--(Marketwired - Aug 20, 2013) - We have all heard the challenge. Many of us have even faced the challenge. You can now play the challenge Americans have been singing for 30 years, 'What Would You Do for a Klondike Bar®?'

All Things Equal, maker of the award-winning Loaded Questions® and Awkward Family Photos® games, has partnered with Klondike® for a hilarious new board game that dares families and friends to conquer hundreds of creative, courageous and cockamamie challenges, all in the name of the iconic slogan.

"A Klondike bar is the ultimate symbol for everything we crave, but which we can only obtain through sheer will and determination," said Eric Poses, president of All Things Equal. "The comedic nature of that sacrifice and the randomness with which people approach the Klondike slogan provide the perfect foundation for a memorable game night. And while players can't eat the game's mini Klondike bars, they can enjoy outdueling their friends and family to win the game. Then, of course, they can make a trip to the freezer and celebrate with a real one."

The 300 head-to-head challenges require quick thinking, creativity and a willingness to laugh at yourself and with others. Players will find themselves asking for a date while grunting like a caveman, coming up with a funny new use for bacon, quickly answering a provocative trivia question or completing an absurd trivial act for a chance to win one of the six Klondike bar flavors needed to win the game. The reward for besting your fellow players is a take-home Champion Card and bragging rights that you answered the call, 'What Would You Do for a Klondike Bar?'

"The 'What Would You Do for a Klondike Bar?' board game is a great format for bringing our iconic slogan to life," says Peter Harbour, Brand Development Director of Frozen Novelties at Unilever. "The game fully engages the brand's comedic spirit, while encouraging players to end their game night with delicious, celebratory Klondike bars."

The 'What Would You Do for a Klondike Bar®?' board game is Made in the USA and now available at Amazon.com for $24.99. The game will debut at Fred Meyer, select Target and Toys R Us locations, and hundreds of specialty stores later this year. For more details, visit www.familyandpartygames.com.
