The Sunday Giveaway: The “Be a Broadway Star” Board Game!

Be A Broadway Star Board GameBelieve it or not, the Holidays are here.

You can tell by the number of tourists arriving in Times Square and the number of A Christmas Carol productions around the country.

So for this week’s giveaway, we thought we’d give out what has become one of the top theater gifts of the last few years:  our Be A Broadway Star board game!

Didn’t know we created a board game?  Well, we did!  Yep, it was one of those shower moments of mine (“How come Broadway doesn’t have a board game?”), and we released it three years ago (click here to read the original announcement).  It was in a bunch of top gift lists, was featured on the Today Show and is one of Amazon’s Top Selling Gifts every holiday season.

What is it like to play?  Imagine the game Life . . . with a touch of charades thrown in (click here to see our commercial).

But forget imagining, because one of you is going to get it for free!

Here’s how you can win your very own Be A Broadway Star board game.

In the game, we have these “Make or Break” cards (which are everyone’s favorite).  They’re like Community Chest or Chance cards in Monopoly.  The only difference is that they include tasks that you have to do before you get your “prize.”  Some cards make you sing a Sondheim lyric or speak in an accent, or perform an interpretive dance.  You know, the type of stuff you might be called upon to do in an audition with an evil casting director behind the table.

Make up your own “Make Or Break” card task and put it in the comment sections, and we’ll pick one who’ll win the game!

Good luck!  I hope you “Make It!”
