OK this is very exciting so thanks to FortBoyard.net for the list and pictures, it’s this year’s batch of new games!
By the looks of it there are just three new tests and ten new adventures, although by the sounds of it some of these new adventures may well be tests. Of note, Gagarin is this year’s twist on Pere Fouras’ riddle – now they must try and solve it whilst being spun round in a gyroscope. From the Earth to the Moon is a reversioning of the Chapel Clock, and Red Alert is a reversioning of Topkapi, both of which were great games but it’s a shame they don’t have new ideas. At least a number of the old games are going to have visually themed rooms.
The Percolator and the Cold Room are listed as adventures but sound more like key tests. Otherwise 101 Ways to Leave a Gameshow seems to have inspired the Inverse Tyrolene (no news as to whether this will be played in tandem with old ship Tyrolene that’s been bought back for the special night time editions) and the Anvil. The Elastic Jump is back with a new focus, just as much on the rest of the team as the jumpee.
Very much looking forward to it, as there are still details yet to be discerned – rule changes, new challenges in the Hall of Judgement and the Council.
The first episode is on July 7th and Saturdays thereafter, but it will be taking a short break for the Olympics.
