Geewa Climbers

Websitegeewa.com/climbers
Launch Date2008

A multi-player game for up to 4 players. Guessing famous quotes and news headlines. Loosely based on the popular Hangman game - with a twist.

The game consists of several rounds where the players simultaneously attempt to guess a famous quote or a news headline letter by letter. A successful round ensures your mountaineer climbs up the face of the rock. However, an unsuccessful round means an unwelcome descent. The first to the top wins! If 2 or more players reach the summit at the same time then the player that would potentially reach the highest altitude wins.
