Spotlight Licensing has brokered a deal with Rather Dashing Games to develop a new card game inspired by the "Downton Abbey" movie.
Rather Dashing's card game aims to weave in moments from the feature film. It sees players take on the roles of the upstairs family and downstairs staff as they work to get the Abbey ready for the arrival of the King and Queen.
"My wife and I have been fans since the very first season, so I'm thrilled at the prospect of adding my game design to the amazing world of 'Downton Abbey,'" says Mike Richie, game designer and co-founder, Rather Dashing Games.
Rather Dashing has designed the title for gamers ages 12 and up. To win a game, players compete to capture cards depicting critical moments of resolution, revelation and emotional closure from the film. Players receive points according to the moments collected.
"The Downton Abbey movie featured some of Downton's grandest, wittiest, and most dramatic moments and we love the idea of Rather Dashing using that as inspiration for a fun and engaging game which fans will enjoy playing with family and friends," says Carole Postal, president, Spotlight Licensing.
Rather Dashing's "Downton Abbey" card game will launch this holiday season. The game adds to the growing list of partners for the "Downtown Abbey" property. Earlier this year, Spotlight Licensing announced a deal that will see Bonavista Optics create a "Downton Abbey"-inspired line of custom sunglasses and eyeglasses.
