Score Entertainment announces the release of Fruits Basket the Card Game

September 9, 2005 (Dallas, TX) – Score Entertainment, a leading manufacture of trading card games, introduces the Fruits Basket Card Game to the 2006 Score Entertainment line up.

Fruits Basket Card Game, scheduled to release in the first quarter of 2006, marks the first time Score Entertainment has ever released a single purchase game. Each deck sells for a suggested retail price of $9.99 and contains 121 cards including a poker deck of 54 cards, a play deck of 53 cards and 14 character cards.

The multiplayer game is based off of the Japanese animation Fruits Basket and the manga, created by Natsuki Takaya. Like in the anime, every member of the Sohma family, even Kyo, represents an animal in the Chinese Zodiac. Tohru is the center of the card game and works with players to befriend members of the Sohma family.

Fruits Basket card game encompasses the theme of friendship like the television program. Players work with the Tohru character card to befriend all the characters in the Chinese Zodiac. The goal for each player is to make friends with the Zodiac-cursed characters. The player with the most friends wins the game.

While making friends with the Fruits Basket Zodiac-cursed characters, players can also befriend each other during the game. Players have the option to entertain and strengthen their relationships by sharing experiences from their own past, prompted by questions on the cards. This interaction makes Fruits Basket more than just a card game; Fruits Basket is an experience that brings friends closer together.

“We are thrilled with the opportunity to bring fans this outstanding property, Fruits Basket, in a card game. The game reaches out to players who want to share their love of the characters in the show, with their own circle of friends,” said Gregory Marques, Score Entertainment Game Designer.
