In 2010, Mayfair Games announced the formation of an imprint titled FunFair that would release family-friendly games, such as Tom McMurchie's Tsuro, which was released in a new edition in 2009 from Calliope Games – the company that Mayfair absorbed and remade into FunFair.

Turns out that the first new release from FunFair will likely be Got 'Em from designer Zach Weisman. Here's how Mayfair describes the game in a press release:

Quote:
Seize and capture your friends' pawns in this delightful game with two unique ways to play!

Brainy Got 'Em! offers the strategic challenge of outsmarting and cornering your opponents with deliberately placed walls, while the tricky yet fun-for-all-ages Bright Got 'Em! has the same goal of trapping your opponents, plus colorful surprises that will keep you on your toes!

Surround yourself with friends and family and get ready to enjoy two great games that hold more fun than any four walls can contain!
So! Many! Exclamation! Points! A bit more detail: In the "Bright" version of Got 'Em, players have a hand of three cards that tell you where you can place a wall, how far you can move your pawn and whether you have the ability to remove or pass through a wall already on the board.

Got 'Em is for 2-6 players, ages 10 and up, with a 15-30 minute playing time. The game retails for $30 and has a street date of May 19, 2011.
