CategoryTen’s New pandemic-themed board game, Covidopoly, continues to receive rave reviews across the nation in its first month of release

December 14, 2020 - Wilton, Connecticut - A new board game, Covidopoly19, is sweeping the nation in its first month and is becoming one of the hottest 2020 holiday gifts. The idea arose while a family was ensconced at home during the pandemic, having gone through many Netflix shows, card games, chess, checkers and even Monopoly. However, these activities did not particularly relate to recent happenings. The idea then dawned on the founders of the Fairfield County Connecticut company, CategoryTen ( http://www.categoryten.com/ ), to develop a game to cover some aspects of the pandemic in a constructive way - seriously, yet with fun and some humor too - a difficult combination to pull off, leading to the creative juices to flow.

The game has a user-friendly and interactive gameplay, with the game pieces featuring people and objects of significance to the pandemic. The pieces include public figures such as presidents of countries, entertainment celebrities, toilet paper, a mask, ventilator, hospital bed, and other such items.

Covidopoly19 got an amazing reception upon its release, recording massive sales and receiving extremely positive newspaper reviews. The Covidopoly19 story was picked up by News12 Connecticut ( https://connecticut.news12.com/wilton-father-creates-board-game-about-covid-to-raise-money-for-bridgeport-charity ), News2 in The Bronx and a slew of reviews on social media including Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, and YouTube. After a few weeks, toy stores began carrying the game, and Covidopoly19 has continued to sweep the nation as the hot 2020 Christmas or holiday gift.

As reported in the Bulletin “[f]or families looking for something fun to do while being cooped up all day at home during the coronavirus pandemic, there’s a new game in town” (covidopoly19 whose purpose) “was to create something that was not only fun, but was timely and had an educational component as well.” In a recent article, Good Morning Wilton pointed out that CategoryTen has created a way to bring some levity to this angst-ridden era, while also stimulating constructive conversation about some important or overlooked aspects of the pandemic.” With the tagline “Staying Safer During the Pandemic,” the game aims to educate as well as entertain.
Kari Eisenberg, the Company’s Chief Operating Officer, stated that the company “takes pride in the deliberate choice to feature female leaders, such as Angela Merkel and Kamala Harris, in the game. Jacinda Ardern, prime minister of New Zealand, is also included as one of the game pieces. Eisenberg states that Ardern was chosen because “[she] is an outstanding role model for women and everyone” and for her “exceptional leadership during this pandemic” which included some of the most aggressive steps to prevent the spread of the virus of any country in the world.” “While the game pieces of Covidopoly19 provide a snapshot of history, we take particular pride in the accomplishments of these women.”
