The Big Bang Theory is one the top-rated shows on television right now and if you're anything like us you probably can't get enough of it. So, if the five nights a week of syndication, cameos by geek legends such as Stan Lee and the new episodes airing every Thursday night aren't enough for you head over to Facebook and check out the new Big Bang Theory social game, Mystic Warlords of Ka'a.
“Facebook is the ideal gaming platform to launch a fun, social game based on the enormously popular The Big Bang Theory franchise with its huge built-in fan base,” said Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Production and Development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “We worked closely with Warner Bros. Television to create an authentic ‘Mystic Warlords of Ka’a’ game experience where fans can play for a just a few minutes or dive in deeper for more strategic challenges with friends.”
The game has been up and running for a couple months now and brings the characters' favorite card game to life in a digital collectible card game on Facebook. The game is free and fans of deck building games like Magic the Gathering should feel at home. We can choose between two game modes – “Duel Mode” features casual, quick and easy matches and “Battle Mode” delves deeper into the strategy. Both modes can be played with friends or characters from the hit show. Friends can also trade rare cards from their virtual collection.
“We’re truly excited to bring viewers of ‘The Big Bang Theory’ the total immersive experience that is the Mystic Warlords of Ka’a game,” said Lisa Gregorian, Chief Marketing Officer, Warner Bros. Television Group. “With over 16 million ‘likes’ on Facebook, the show is a social media phenomenon, and the game lets fans interact with their favorite characters — Leonard, Penny, Howard, Raj and, eventually, Sheldon — at any time, enriching their social experience.”
The Big Bang Theory airs Thursdays at 8/7c on CBS.
