Buffalo Games, LLC and Buzzfeed have teamed up to release a new line of party games.

The set of games includes BuzzFeed Ultimate 2000’s Trivia and Buzzfeed Listicles. The 2000’s trivia will contain over 400 questions crammed with pictures, questions and challenges based on movies, television, toys, tech and trends of the decade mentioned in past BuzzFeed articles. For instance, what type of fruit did the viral video “Peanut Butter Jelly Time” feature?  The game can be played with 2+ players, ages 14 and up.

Listicles, a frantic race to compile a list based on hilarious categories, pays homage to the unique and unusual list articles that frequently appear on BuzzFeed’s website. In this game, players race the clock to create unique lists based on categories like things your rich friend had growing up and people you wouldn’t want to be trapped in an elevator with. Players gain bonus points by starting their list items with the letter designated for the round and can also be awarded points if they have the most WTF or OMG items on their list!

Cooking Chaos is a collaborative kitchen cook-off featuring popular comfort food recipes from Tasty, BuzzFeed’s massively popular global food brand. In this game, players race to collect ingredient cards to make dishes like the famous bacon-wrapped mashed potato-stuffed meatloaf. To emerge victorious, players have to overcome obstacle cards like a Burned Tongue (no talking until you finish your next recipe: charades only) or a Cut Finger (only use one hand until you complete your next recipe).

“We believe that when we combine BuzzFeed’s unique voice and style with our experience creating fun and engaging games, the end result will be a set of games that people are going to want to play again and again,” says Ben Jamesson, Buffalo Games vice president of marketing and product development. “Working with BuzzFeed will allow us to tap into the millions of people that love their content globally and expose them to games that they will find interesting and compelling.”

Listicles will be released exclusively at Target and 2000s Trivia will be available from major retailers in Fall 2020.

P.S. For those of you still pondering that featured fruit question from earlier, it was a banana. You’re welcome.
