In order to grow its TV licensed board games, following the the launch of Take Me Out, Esdevium is keen to press ahead with another title.

The board game will stay faithful to the TV show where players must bluff their way to victory, reading from cards based on various rounds from the show including Quick Fire Lies; Ring Of Truth and This Is My…. Players are split into two teams to do battle against each other.

The TV show itself, recently won Best Comedy Panel Show at the 2011 British Comedy Awards and is now in its fifth series and achieving its highest ever audiences, peaking at just over 4 million. You can catch the new series every Friday evening on BBC One.

‘Would I Lie To You?’ and ‘Take Me Out’ board games are properties of Rocket Games and are distributed in the UK by Esdevium Games. Take Me Out will also be available throughout 2012, with the new series running until April.
