If you loved the Bob Ross: Art of Chill board game, the geniuses behind that colorful journey though zen have delivered a brand new experience. Nobody can deny the appeal and seduction behind Kenny G’s saxophone, and what better way to further enjoy the curly haired smoothness than in a board game. The developer released some information in their latest press release:
Nashville, June 25, 2019 — Big G Creative, the brainpower behind the Bob Ross: Art of Chill board game, has done it again. Based on the daily trials in the life of world-renowned saxophone superstar Kenny G, Keepin’ It Saxy arrives this week exclusively in Target stores nationwide. A cooperative card game for ages twelve and up, Keepin’ It Saxy allows players to work together and use the power of smooth jazz to keep Kenny G in the groove.
During each round, players collect, trade, and match sound cards and move a lifelike Kenny G game piece through his day from morning to evening. Working as a team, players must overcome a series of setbacks faced by the smooth jazz artist like a lost wallet, a broken sax reed, a traffic jam in Malibu, running out of hair product, and mismatched socks.
“We encourage players to put on some Kenny G and sit back, relax and enjoy our new game with friends,” said Shannon Swindle, Product and Communications Manager, Big G Creative. “Kenny G has a great sense of humor, and Keepin’ It Saxy captures that sense of fun and brings a groovy time to game night.”
“I never imagined that following a day in my life would be turned into a game that is so much fun,” said Kenny G. “Keepin’ it Saxy is a great combination of what I celebrate in life: Music, laughter, and spending time with friends and family.”
As players work together to complete events, they try to maintain their stash of Groove Tokens. If players finish the last round and still have at least one token on the board, players win. For added fun, players can scat out the riffs on the cards when they complete an event. Don’t be surprised to hear friends say, “Biddle Scoodily Bop!” when they make a move.
Keepin’ It Saxy contains one Kenny G mover, a game board, 16 groove tokens, 62 sax cards, 36 event cards, three dice, one first player marker and instructions. Perfect for parties and jazzy nights, the game takes an average of thirty minutes to complete. Available exclusively at Target stores nationwide and Target.com. SRP $19.99.
