Dream Phone, The Secret Admirer Board Game. Phone his number, listen to the clues, who, who, who has a crush on you? The object of the game is to be the first player to work out who the Secret Admirer is. There is only one Secret Admirer per game and his identity changes for each new game. The Dream Phone has many calling functions dialing a guy, using the phone book and speed dial. When you are ready to guess your Secret Admirer press the question mark icon on the phone, you can dial the guy’s number, use the speed dial function or select from the phonebook list to make your guess. The guy will answer your call and will tell you whether you are right or not by saying either ‘sorry not me’ or ‘I am going to a party, wanna come?’ The Dream Phone can also call you, it is the Phantom Caller. During the game the phone will ring without anyone having made a call. The girl on the line will tell everyone a special clue, it’s a free clue but make sure you write the information down on your clue as you cannot call hear back to hear it again. The phone will display which player goes first. Five easy steps to playing Dream Phone pick a boy to call, dial a number and read your clue, search the game board, discard and draw a card, end your turn and pass the phone.
Prepare for a girl’s night in of giggles with the Dream Phone board game. This is a fun update of the original game from the 80′s, adding a new dimension of mystery with texting. You’ll receive texts and calls on the mobile phone giving clues as to who the secret admirer is – you have to be the first to guess who he is to win. Will he be dark haired and handsome or blond and sporty? Requires 3 x AAA batteries, not included.

We were pleased to be asked by Amazon to speak on the panel at the Amazon App Developers London Meet Up last night. Henry Bennett (co-founder of Island Wall Entertainment / Deluxe Apps Department) spoke about the huge success of the Classic Catch Phrase App on the Amazon App Store, where the app has rarely been out of the top 3 paid apps on the store since its launch last year.
Henry was very pleased to share the stage with Peter Sleeman (P2 Games), Saad Chaudri (Miniclip) and Ian Harper (Future Games).
As a company, we are huge fans of the Amazon App Store due to both the volume of paid apps that can be achieved but also the ability to easily communicate with the Store team.

This is the second time the App has featured is Style magazine, (the first being in June 2009) and shows that despite its great age (in app terms) the idea still resonates today.
