CRYPTOZOIC ENTERTAINMENT™ ANNOUNCES RUMBLE IN R’LYEH EXPANSION FOR PENNY ARCADE THE GAME: GAMERS VS. EVIL

Irvine, CA. December 16, 2011 – Cryptozoic Entertainment, developer and publisher of the World of Warcraft® Trading Card Game and The Walking Dead™ Board Game, is pleased to announce that it has completed development on Penny Arcade The Game: Rumble in R’lyeh, the first expansion for Penny Arcade The Game: Gamers Vs. Evil, the deck-building game based on the popular web comic.  With Penny Arcade The Game: Rumble in R’lyeh, evil is back with a vengeance! Fan-favorite Cthulhu, the Great Old One himself, is waking from his long slumber and plans to wreak havoc over the Earth. Who dares stand in his way?!

Penny Arcade The Game: Gamers vs. Evil was well received as a comically entertaining entry into the deck-building game genre. Penny Arcade The Game: Rumble in R’lyeh follows up on the success we’ve built and expands the crazy ride we started with the original game,” said Scott Gaeta, COO at Cryptozoic Entertainment.  “Penny Arcade The Game: Rumble in R’lyeh will be a stand-alone expansion and does not require the original game to play, so it will be accessible to both new players and fans of the original game.”

The expansion will add new Hero cards, Gamer cards and Evil cards, featuring an all-new cast of crazy characters from the comic series including Professor Necro-Dead, Highly Trained Badgers, Frank Karapyss the Crabomancer, and the Great Old One herself…Tycho’s Grandma!  Penny Arcade The Game: Rumble in R’lyeh will also introduce new Gold cards to the mix. These cards require both Tokens and Power to acquire and count as both green and red cards, so the combinations and synergy with the previous set will create completely new strategies for players.                                                                                                                                                                             

Designed for 2-4 players, Penny Arcade The Game: Rumble in R’lyeh will be available for a MSRP of $45.00.  For more information on the 2012 release of Penny Arcade The Game: Rumble in R’lyeh, please visit www.cryptozoic.com.
