CBS comedy “The Big Bang Theory and its geeky cast of characters strike a chord with many people, as the show’s fan page boasts more than 16 million likes, so why did it take so long for the debut of a Facebook game based on the series?

In any event, Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment introduced The Big Bang Theory: Mystic Warlords of Ka’a, a game on the social network, based on a card game favored by the characters on the show.

The game debuted in preview beta mode July 21, and it currently totals more than 60,000 monthly active users.

There are two game modes:

  • Duel Mode, for players who prefer quick and easy games, and
  • Battle Mode, which delves into the more strategic elements of the game.

Users can play with and against “Big Bang Theory characters, challenge friends, and collect and trade cards.

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment senior vice president of production and development Samantha Ryan said:

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. 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.

Warner Brothers Television Group Chief Marketing Officer Lisa Gregorian added:

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. With more than 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.
