BURBANK, Calif. - September 22, 2011 - Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announces the launch of The Big Bang Theory: Mystic Warlords of Ka'a, a new game playable on Facebook.

The Big Bang Theory also recently launched in off-network syndication, airing five nights per week on the Fox Television Stations and broadcast stations around the country, as well as on TBS.

"Facebook is the ideal gaming platform to launch a fun, social game based on the enormously popular The Big Bang Theory franchise with its huge built-in fan base," said Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Production and Development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. "We worked closely with Warner Bros. Television to create an authentic 'Mystic Warlords of Ka'a' game experience where fans can play for a just a few minutes or dive in deeper for more strategic challenges with friends."

The Big Bang Theory: Mystic Warlords of Ka'a brings the characters' favorite card game from the hit comedy to life in an all new digital collectible card game on Facebook. Fans can play with characters from the series, as well as challenge their friends in the in-depth and accessible gameplay. The game features two play modes: "Duel Mode," a casual game providing quick and easy matches, and "Battle Mode," where players explore the more strategic elements of the card game, battling it out and challenging their friends. Players can also collect and trade rare cards with one another.

"We're truly excited to bring viewers of 'The Big Bang Theory' the total immersive experience that is the Mystic Warlords of Ka'a game," said Lisa Gregorian, Chief Marketing Officer, Warner Bros. Television Group. "With over 16 million 'likes' on Facebook, the show is a social media phenomenon, and the game lets fans interact with their favorite characters - Leonard, Penny, Howard, Raj and, eventually, Sheldon - at any time, enriching their social experience."
