Griddly Games, which is based in “hockey country” Canada, has a unique insight to the hockey fan psyche. “Nothing beats playoff hockey. Teams and fans look forward to NHL’s ‘second season’, but even for the most devoted fan, between periods and off-days, seem like forever,” according to Reisa Schwartzman, president of Griddly Games. “We’ve made sure to stock the shelves, especially in playoff contending cities, with Griddly Headz Hockey games so that fans can stay in the game throughout the playoffs and the off-season.”

This year, as the regular season records dictated:
- Montreal Canadiens vs. Boston Bruins;
- Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Ottawa Senators;
- Washington Capitals vs. Philadelphia Flyers;
- New Jersey Devils vs. New York Rangers;
- Detroit Red Wings vs. Nashville Predators;
- San Jose Sharks vs. Calgary Flames;
Minnesota Wild vs. Colorado Avalanche; - and Anaheim Ducks vs. Dallas Stars, Each face off is full of excitement for fans to enjoy watching hockey games and playing Griddly Headz Hockey games for the next several weeks.

Griddly Headz board games (MSRP $29.99, for 2-4 players, ages 8 and up) are a unique and innovative line of sports themed games, that can be played without knowing everything about a particular sport or team. The high-sticking action of Griddly Headz Hockey, in particular, has players looking for a power play roll of the dice to score against their opponents. Other products in the Griddly Headz line include Griddly Headz Football, Griddly Headz Baseball, and Griddly Headz Racing NASCAR®.

The sports-related game play in the Griddly Headz games are named for elements of the particular sport, but are common challenges for players to engage strategy, alliances and a bit of luck. Each turn electrifies all of the players from the first roll of the dice to the final frenzied seconds.”
