Promo of the Week

SciFi pushes 'Tin'

PROMO OF THE WEEK

SciFi Channel is playing games with the nation’s TV writers. Literally.

To hype “Tin Man” — the upcoming six-hour twisted take on “The Wizard of Oz” — the cabler sent journos an elaborate board game, complete with metal tokens based on characters from the miniseries. This game seems much tougher than Monopoly, however, with complicated rules and instructions (“If a player gets to Azkadellia’s Prison, he or she may not leave until rolling an odd number”).

It isn’t first potentially collectible “Tin Man” promo produced by SciFi: Over the summer, it distribbed “Tin Man” comicbooks at Comic-Con.

Several of those comics have landed on Ebay — but the board game isn’t on the auction site. Yet.
