EA hosts a boardgame bonanza on iPhone

Trivial Pursuit, Scrabble, and Monopoly down to 59p

After taking a stall at the recent 'Great iOS Garage Sale' and getting into the swing of the Ryder Cup with a Tiger Woods PGA Tour price drop, highly Qi rated games publisher Electronic Arts is having another sale.

Three of its iconic iPhone boardgame titles - Trivial Pursuit, Scrabble, and Monopoly - are available now at the bargain basement price of 59p / 99c / €0.79 for that, rather ominous, ‘limited time’.

If you aren’t familiar with this trio of family friendly staples, Trivial Pursuit tests your general knowledge and pop culture awareness, while Scrabble and Monopoly challenge your word-formation and business acumen respectively.

Unsurprisingly, all three of these Hasbro tie-ins have skyrocketed up the UK App Store paid-for charts, currently occupying the #2, 6, and 9 berths.

A fourth title from the video game behemoth, the legendary tumbling blocks title Tetris is undergoing a re-rebirth too.

Having celebrated a Tetris download milestone a few weeks back with a 72-hour promotion, EA has taken advantage of the well-known App Store inverse proportionality rule.

By EA lowering the game’s sticker price to 59p / 99c / €0.79 again, Tetris has risen meteorically onto the Top 10 Paid and Grossing lists.

I believe that’s what Pocket Gamer calls ‘peggling’.
