July 12th 2007: Northamptonshire, UK: Oxygen Games kicks off the Christmas party season with two celebrity-hosted quizzes.
Cheggers' Party Quiz and Alan Hansen's Sports Challenge will be in the shops from November 2007, just in time for the Christmas season, and will be available on everybody's pet party consoles, Wii and PlayStation®2, as well as PC CD ROM.
Guaranteed to have something for everyone - much like its devilishly dishy host! - Cheggers' Party Quiz is jam-packed with thousands of entertainment questions, all brought into your front room by the eternally ebullient host, Keith Chegwin!
Challenging quiz and party game fans to Party with Cheggers this Christmas, Cheggers' Party Quiz is the most wonderfully wacky party quiz to hit consoles yet!
Enthusing about the project, Oxygen CEO Jim Scott said:
"Who doesn't love Cheggers? Or know who he is for that matter? Incredibly marketable, Cheggers is the perfect choice for the Christmas Season's interactive party game purchasers. Cheggers is a household name, and every household knows he's guaranteed entertainment!"
Somewhat in contrast, Oxygen Games offers up something in a more serious vein for the other side of the quiz game marketin the shape of Alan Hansen's Sports Challenge.
Guaranteed to put sports know-it-alls' knowledge to the ultimate test, popular soccer pundit Hansen dares players to face his sometimes acerbic wit, whilst struggling to avoid being labelled 'diabolical', and eventually come top of the quiz leader-board.
Sorting the men from the boys this Christmas, Alan Hansen's Sports Challenge is all about Serious Sport, Serious Challenge and Serious Fun!
Jim Scott continued:
"Hansen is a legend, and with his natural dry wit, he will bring a great twist to the world of serious sports quizzes. Not only is he respected by men but the ladies love him too! We're expecting there to be more than sports fans heading to the shops for our Sports Challenge this Christmas!"
Party with Cheggers, or brave Hansen's astringent drollness this Christmas with Cheggers' Quiz Party and Alan Hansen's Sports Challenge, out on Wii and PlayStation®2 and PC in November 2007.
