Cryptozoic and Don’t Panic Games Announce Release of Attack on Titan: The Last Stand

Board Game Based on Hit Anime Series Features Unique Vertical Gameplay and 15-Inch Tall Titan

Lake Forest, CA – July 10, 2017 Cryptozoic Entertainment, leading creator of board games, trading cards, and collectibles, in partnership with Don’t Panic Games, today announced the July 26 release of Attack on Titan: The Last Stand. Based on the popular Attack on Titan anime series, this 2-5 player asymmetric board game puts one player in the role of a fearsome Titan, while the other players are brave Heroes trying to protect the Tower that guards the last human city. Designed by the award-winning Antoine Bauza and Ludovic Maublanc, the game requires strategic utilization of dice and features unique vertical gameplay, as the Heroes move up and down both the Tower and the 15-inch tall Titan Standee.

“Players are going to love the unique play experience crafted by Antoine and Ludo,” said Adam Sblendorio, Vice President of Creative at Cryptozoic. “They’ve captured the essence of an epic fight between humans and a monstrous Titan, creatively using a Titan itself as the setting for the battle.”

In Attack on Titan: The Last Stand, up to 4 players become Heroes, with choices including fan-favorite characters Eren, Mikasa, and Armin. Each Hero has a standee and a card with distinctive abilities that the player must utilize in order to take down the Titan. Teamwork is key to victory, as the Hero players need to work together to use Tactics Cards that have powerful effects. Players each roll five custom dice that let them move between the different Levels of the Titan and Tower, attack with Cannons or swords, and dodge devastating blows. Players can re-roll these dice as many times as they want, with one caveat: Every time they roll a Titan symbol, they lose that die.

The dice with the Titan symbol can be used by the Titan player, who can choose to be either a Basic, Destructive, Deviant, or Voracious Titan. During each round, the Titan’s first Action Card is placed face up, and the second one face down. Therefore, the Hero players know what the Titan intends to do with the first Action Card, and may try to thwart his plans by allocating the dice symbols shown on the card. But since the second Action Card is a complete mystery (and can be deadly), the Heroes may sometimes choose to suffer the effects of the first Action Card so they can keep their symbols for the hidden card.

If the Titan eats all 12 Citizens, destroys all six cannons, or crushes a Hero’s three hearts, humanity’s last stand fails and the Titan wins. Just like the anime, the Heroes can only win one way: They must kill the Titan by slashing his neck. With eight different Heroes and four Titans—each with a separate oversized card and deck—every game will be markedly different.

Attack on Titan: The Last Stand will be available at retailers nationwide July 26 for a suggested retail price of $40.
