Games and puzzles specialist Gibsons launches Card Game for Rebel Girls

Gibsons has extended its licensing partnership with the team behind the Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls book series to introduce its latest offering to celebrate history’s queens, activists, scientists, artists and sporting champions with the Card Game for Rebel Girls.

Originally published on the back of a successful Kickstarter project, the Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls books are the brainchild of Elena Favilli and Francesca Cavallo, who decided to write the books to highlight the achievements of history’s under-represented female role models.

The stories have since gone on to sell over 4.5 million copies worldwide, and has formed the focus of a growing licensing programme.

Card Game for Rebel Girls is latest of those licensed product offerings. The aim of the of the game is to collect and complete sets of Character Cards to score as many Rebel Reward points as possible. Each Rebel Reward Card requires a different team of Rebel Girls to complete the task, so players must use their Character Card’s strengths and the handy Wild Cards to build a squad of strong girls.

There are five categories of Rebel Girls in the game: Champions, Warriors, Leaders, Pioneers, and Creators. Characters such as Harriet Tubman, the Bronte sisters, Eva Peron, Hypatia, Boudicca, Katia Krafft, Wilma Rudolph and Junk Tabei are all included.

The game allows players to learn a little more about each Rebel Girl and what their achievements have been throughout history. Each card has a small blurb to describe the characters and what made them special and unique.

‘This empowering card game is perfect for children aged six and up and includes personalised certificates for any rebel who is inspired to achieve greatness in their own lives,’ read a statement from Gibsons.

‘Whilst learning about incredible women throughout history, the Card Game for Rebel Girls also encourages players to be bold, work hard and remember to be proud of everything they have achieved.’

Earlier this year Gibsons released two Jigsaw Puzzles for Rebel Girls. Available in 100 and 500 pieces, each puzzle has a slightly different design and features vibrant and imaginative illustrations by talented female artists from around the globe.

‘The Rebel Girls range is an empowering collection for both young girls and boys, showcasing the history and achievements of women of the past and present. Gibsons are proud to be a part of this important mission to inspire and instil confidence in our children,’ concluded the firm.
