Friday 7th September 2018 saw the launch of Strictly Come Dancing: The Board Game from Ideal Games.
Strictly judge Craig Revel Horwood – whose voice features in the game – was joined by professional dancer and Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two star Ian Waite at the press launch. Guests were treated to a group dance lesson, which focused on steps from the Cha Cha Cha, as well as the chance to try out the new board game. The launch came ahead of the new series of Strictly Come Dancing, which aired on Saturday night at 7.35pm.
Strictly Come Dancing: The Board Game captures all the fun and excitement of the popular BBC show. Players pair with an in-game professional dancer and journey through training where they must answer trivia questions, take on challenges and perform mini dance-offs. The two players who make it to the game’s ‘live final’ can perform a dance to one of the six tunes that are played on the revolving glitterball speaker, or alternatively can take on the finger Cha Cha challenge.
Craig Revel Horwood commented: “I think Strictly Come Dancing: The Board Game will be fabulous enjoyment for all. It means everyone can join in some Strictly Come Dancing inspired, fun which gets a 10 from me.”
