Celebrate Christmas throughout the year with the Asterix Quiz!

Games and contests

For a few lucky fans Christmas has come early. For the October quiz, Virginie LOUCHEL, Ophélie HERBEZ, Isabelle BLANC, Christian BODENEZ and Brice Ménage walked away with the album Asterix in Spain, whilst Tatiana CHEVRAY, Stéphanie RUDELLE, Béa COLICHET, Alexandre BALDET and Gaétan TORCHIA won the album Cherche et Trouve Idéfix [Find Dogmatix] during November’s session.

For everyone else, the celebrations continue with several Blu-ray versions of the animated film Asterix in Britain up for grabs for those taking part in our new Quiz.

Whilst waiting for the new “live” film based on the album of the same name (planned for 2012), there is nothing quite like a return to the classics to keep us occupied!

Video Games to be Won!

Games and contests

Asterix in 2009 means 50 years of success in the world of comic books. What is less well known is that it is also marks 25 years of video game history! For proof, take the first Asterix video game, produced in 1984 under the sober title of Asterix. Now of course, given that technology has progressed over the past 25 years at the speed of light thanks to a quaff of magic potion, the screen shots of yesteryear do tend to bring an indulgent smile to our face…

But at a time when "vintage" games are now "cult" items and music from the most famous games is played in concert by symphony orchestras, we shouldn't forget that this game left its mark on history. If the truth is to be known, it even brought out a cold sweat on the brows of the most brilliant gamers since it determined the winners at the formidable national and regional championship finals that were in fashion back then.

Today, Asterix and his friends are back with a brand-new game for the Nintendo DS. "Asterix - These Romans are Crazy!" is going to test your reflexes. This "party game", as the Gauls now call them, will lead you through a series of adventures via a sort of snakes and ladders game comprised of 20 mini-games that take you through four different universes:

  • the Gaulish village
  • the Roman camp
  • the forest
  • the seashore.

Everything it takes to thrill fans of all ages and enjoy fun with your family! The game offers a 2-player mode, playing by turns on the same Nintendo DS™.

By Toutatis, now this is something to be celebrated in our virtual Village! So, throughout the month of December, five "Asterix - These Romans are Crazy!" games can be won thanks to our Asterix Quiz! Here's wishing you all good luck!
