This week, Adelaide is in a frenzy.
With the cricket season kicking off, the test match about to hit Adelaide Oval, and the Big Bash dates ready to roll out over the Summer, fans are gearing up for all the action.
Between matches, there’s a new way to stay entertained thanks to a partnership between Cricket Australia, the Seven Network and Imagination Gaming.
Beware though, you might actually find a reason to put your iphone down and have some human interaction …
A brand new, limited edition tabletop cricket game called BIG BASH SMASH, has launched, and it looks like good fun.
The official tabletop game of the Big Bash, BIG BASH SMASH, is the best of cricket games smashed up and delivered in a quick, sharp and explosive tabletop game for the whole family.
Shane Yeend, CEO, Imagination Gaming said “BBL has become a cultural phenomenon and games have a long history of bringing families together
to enjoy hours of fun, and now Australian families can bring their love of BBL to Family Game Nights this Summer.”
“People are looking for genuine social experiences and reasons to disconnect from their phones and reconnect with each other. Tabletop gaming is growing, with data predicting usage to grow more than 9% annually from 2017-2023.”
Cricket Australia Head of Big Bash Leagues Alistair Dobson said “The Big Bash Leagues have been lighting up lounge rooms around Australia for the last eight summers, and there’s no doubt the BIG BASH SMASH is going to be a great addition this summer.”
BIG BASH SMASH will feature a heavy duty, crease-resistant neoprene cricket field mat, with up to 22 players able to participate in three different game modes.
Fans will be able to play a traditional match in Twenty20, be the first to 50 runs in the 50 Run Challenge, or see who can score the most runs in one over in a Super Over game!
Fans can download the free BIG BASH SMASH scoreboard companion app, keep score with a digital scoreboard and capture the action with a slow-motion replay, just like the real thing available for Apple and Android devices.
BIG BASH SMASH – Tabletop Game, is now available, while stocks last, exclusively from GiftBox Stores and GiftBox.com.au.
