Wine.woot sells first edition of Wine Teasers game

December 5, 2009 at 3:45 pm Leave a comment

The first edition version of Wine Teasers wine game recently had a quick sellout at wine.woot.

Some people were wondering if the  Wine Teasers edition for sale at wine.woot was the same as the edition for sale at amazon.com and at the Cork Jester’s Wine Teasers website.

The answer is NO, it’s a completely different edition.

The first edition game is not available on the retail market. The ONLY place you can get it is at wine.woot, where they sell it every now and then, either by itself or bundled with another wine accessory. Just one more great reason to visit the wine.woot site on a regular basis!

What’s the difference between the two editions?

First, Jennifer Rosen, Cork Jester, did the content for the second edition, not the first. As the publisher and creator of the first edition, I can tell you that Jennifer’s expertise, witty writing, and insider wine knowledge is the reason that the 2nd edition got all the outstanding media reviews and is still selling like gangbusters today.

While we at Fine Wine Games, Inc. still have fond thoughts about the 1st edition (probably because we had so much of our own blood, sweat, and tears invested in it), and people did like it, the 2nd edition is the current hot retail product and the only Wine Teasers game that’s available at Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble stores (not online), and other stores across the country.

Major differences in the two editions include:

  • Second edition is the Jennifer Rosen edition with the Cork Jester brand.
  • Second edition has all new content – no content from the first edition is duplicated in the 2nd edition
  • Second edition includes labels, descriptions, tasting notes, etc. of real-life wines. First edition describes generic wines.
  • Second edition has replaced the dice with another method of chance. It’s 100% paper product, no dice required to play.
  • Second edition has completely different packaging – it’s burgundy colored, not green, and still fits in a purse or pocket.
  • Second edition is still for sale at MSRP at Amazon.com – because it continues to sell so well, Amazon has never seen the need to discount the price (whereas almost all wine game competitors have had their price reduced by Amazon). That means it’s worth every penny people pay for it.

So for those of you looking for a great wine gift, a stocking stuffer, or just something fun to do with the holiday guests, head over to the how to buy page and grab a game or two in time for the partying!

And don’t forget to check in on a regular basis at wine.woot – they’re sure to have the first edition showing up again every now and then.

What is Wine Teasers?

Wine Teasers Wine Game

Cork Jester's Wine Teasers wine game is a trendy, educational game that combines trivia, hints, chance, and even the occasional diabolical maneuver to provide a fun and unpretentious wine learning experience. Teams of players answer questions, discuss topics, loot virtual wines from each other, and have a fun, educational experience along the way. Wine Teasers’ motto, “The FUN way to learn wine,” describes the game perfectly
