LEXINGTON, Kentucky, Sept. 10 /Christian Newswire/ -- The Thanksgiving Game, Inc. announces the launch of the first and only game on the market for Thanksgiving, a family game that epitomizes Ephesians 5:20, which tell us to be "always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ." Christian businessman Louie Stotz invented the game for his family to play several years ago as they waited for late dinner guests to arrive. It was an instant hit with his family, so much so that they have played it every year since. The patent-pending game provides a means for celebrants to start a new tradition while observing an old one.
Stotz had never considered doing anything with the game except for his family's enjoyment until a couple of Thanksgivings ago, when his son-in-law remarked that it should be "shared with the world. After prayerful consideration, Stotz enlisted that son-in-law, Tim Lester, to transform his idea into a retail product. Lester took the homemade version and developed it into a boxed game that is available to consumers. Stotz says, "God's hand has been in this project from the start with so many amazing affirmations along the way. I am excited to see how this game will be used for His glory and how it will help families for Thanksgivings year after year."
The game has received rave reviews, and early retail response has been positive. Lester describes the game: "ThanksGiving, ThanksGuessing, and ThanksSharing(TM) are the progressive phases. Participants reflect on their blessings and fill out multiple game 'cards of thanks.' Creativity and competitive strategy come into play, and adventurous players can 'shoot the turkey' for extra points. The game brings families, from 7 to 97-year-olds, closer together and makes the season more relevant in a fun, new way. It focuses attention on what Thanksgiving is all about – realizing the many blessings God has given all Americans, sharing them with loved ones, and doing it all in an interactive, unique manner that would not be possible without playing The Thanksgiving Game™." Lester adds, "It's the perfect gift to take to the host home but it really can be enjoyed any time of year, not just Thanksgiving."
The game has a suggested retail price of $19.99, can be played by 3 to 20 players and is available at Christian bookstores through STL-Distribution.com, and at other retailers. The Thanksgiving Game, Inc. was founded in 2007 with the singular mission of sharing the game with American families. Visit TheThanksgivingGame.com for additional information.
