Sci Fi Tin Man Board Game Item: “Tin Man” board game

Company: Sci Fi Channel

Promoting: The Dec. 2 premiere of “Tin Man,” Sci Fi’s reimagining of “The Wizard of Oz”

Description: Like Candyland and similar games, this is essentially a race along a path—in this case, a yellow brick road. If you land on an emerald, you draw a potluck card such as “Toto knows a shortcut; move forward four spaces.”

Better idea: Make your own Sci Fi Channel game cards such as, “ComicCon fans like your pilot; advance two spaces” and “Writers strike—no progress for three turns.”
