Hasbro: NAKNAK


Hear the clicks -- Feel the need to collect and stack -- Compete in a building and balancing act! The hottest new way to play is here -- the vertical, clickable world of Hasbro, Inc.'s NAKNAK.

NAKNAK, the first ever STACKING BATTLE figures, combines creativity, coordination, competition, collectibility and coolness into one great brand. NAKNAK is a world of cool collectible, stackable figures with names like GROOVYNAK, CHILLYNAK, ZO'NAK and GRUNTNAK figures. Kids' creativity will shine through while competing with others in captivating stacking contests called "NAKNAK Challenges," or engaging in a solo stacking challenge.

NAKNAK figures have a distinctive clicking sound that is sure to make NAKNAK a household sound as well as a household word. Each NAKNAK character can be posed into 80 different positions and belongs to groups called NAKNAK CLIKS, such as ROBO-NAKS, HUMANAKS, ALIENAKS figures and more. Hasbro will introduce more than 90 different NAKNAK figures throughout 2003, with each NAKNAK CLIK bringing new sculpts and designs that give kids additional stacking options and new challenges.

How many NAKNAK figures can you stack? NAKNAK Challenges are very captivating on your own or against one or more opponents. Players roll the NAKNAK Challenge Dice to direct the pose and location during a players' turn. The NAKNAK STACKER die tells the player where to place a figure -- on top of the stack, or on the ground (playing surface). The NAKNAK NAKITUDE die tells the player how to pose the figure on the stack or ground -- by "hand," "foot," or "wild," which is the player's choice. If a player knocks the stack over, that player loses his figure to the opponent. The players take back their figures, and another round begins. The object, to have the most NAKNAK figures left at the end of the challenge, is accomplished by creative clicking and stacking and a steady hand that doesn't knock the stack over!

To help kids learn about this awesome new way to play, Hasbro will take the NAKNAK craze on the road in the spring, with special events in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and Orlando. Kids in those cities won't want to miss this chance showcase their stacking abilities and get free NAKNAK samples and goodies.

NAKNAK figures are now available where Hasbro toys and games are sold. A range of NAKNAK items will also be available such as a carrying case, play sets, an Ultimate Stacking Competition set and NAK-CESSORIES so kids can find new ways to collect, stack and challenge.
