Hamburg, 04/20/2016 –
On the occasion of this anniversary, we take a look at one of McCarthy’s great strategy games: The Power Game!

Start from the beginning. Brian McCarthy is a pioneer. No, he’s a revolutionary! Always in search of new ways and always on the look-out for the perfect strategy game! The game should be as easy as possible and just subjected to few regulations! At the same time, the strategic complexity should be as high as possible. The result was the Power Game!

Developed and produced back in the seventies, the Power Game achieved large sales. Several millions of games were sold worldwide! All in all it’s one of the most successful board games across Northern Europe!

40 years later, the Power Game is launched again as a superb digital
re-birth of the game! Again, McCarthy found new possibilities to entertain the community of gamers from all over the world!
Thanks to new technologies, it’s possible to play the classic board game on your Phone and Tablet. Play alone against the AI or challenge your friends – everywhere and at all times!
The game is available for free on the App Store – try it out!

Today, on April the 20th, the time has come – the game developer Brian McCarthy celebrates his 75th birthday. The LITE Games Team wishes him all the best and wants to thank him for the inspiration!
In the matter of games, McCarthy is a real forerunner and we hope to experience even more innovations on your part!
