Sales Handle: Silly, sexy games for couples sell! With more than 43,000 sold, Truth or Dare and its follow-up, Let's Play Doctor (F09; 1,600 sold, 3,500 on freeze) have shown a way to merge our game publishing with our succesful sex publishing. Kiss and Tell's gameplay is vastly different from its predecessors--It's more of a cheeky bachelorette party game--a PG-13/sexy mix of Apples to Apples and Balderdash. Lots of quick game-play, reversals of fortunes (opponents can play trump cards on others, stealing their points or cards or forcing them to change the contents of the story they're telling) and silly-back-and-forth. It's less about telling a 'sexy' story as it making your opponents laugh. --Perfect Valentine's gift/perfect bachelorette party gift. --Chronicle's fun inventive sex publishing has achieved great success: IOU Sex (F05) and Sex Scratchers (F07) have sold over 155K and over 175K respectively; and Position of the Day titles--800K overall. --Utterly unique: Most of the 'sexy' games on the market tend to be downmarket and little off-putting.
Chronicle's publishing with Thrusti Kicki Grabbi brings a level of sophistication and cheeky approachability to the game shelves.
