Fans of NBC’s The Office have had reason to celebrate recently thanks to a few new developments.
Cardinal, the game maker behind such sitcom based hits as “Golden Girls: Any Way You Slice It,” has released a new Dunder-Mifflin based game that’s sure to have you saying “that’s what she said.”
The Office: Downsizing, currently available on Amazon, is a game of workplace survival in which players choose their favorite character and attempt to make it to the weekend without getting canned. According to the description, it all starts by choosing a side.
“Be part of Team Michael, intent on exposing Toby as the Scranton Strangler. Be part of Team Toby, just itching to issue a pink slip (or two or three). Orrr, BE TOBY in disguise! Each day of the week comes with a new email from HR and enough episode-specific gameplay references to separate the avid show watcher from the hard-core Dunder Mifflin devotee.”
The game, suitable for 5-10 players, comes with everything you’ll need to ascend the corporate level all the way to middle management. Complete with name badges, a dry erase board and your very own Dundie Award, this game is sure to be a hit next time you have 20-30 minutes to kill.
The game is currently on sale for $11.99 on Amazon and makes a great gift for that secret Santa exchange coming up in a few months.
Also announced this week, a new podcast featuring Pam and Angela will launch this fall.
Real-life pals Jenna Fisher and Angela Kinsey are reuniting once again for Office Ladies, a weekly podcast where the pair will answer fan questions and share behind the scenes details. The first episode debuts October 16th and will be available on multiple podcast platforms.
I’m not sure why they didn’t call it That’s What She Said.
