Cryptozoic and Rooster Teeth Announce Partnership to Release
Million Dollars, But... The Game

Companies Will Work Together to Bring Party Game Based on the Popular Series from Rooster Teeth to Hobby Stores and Other Retailers Nationwide


Lake Forest, CA – May 17, 2018 – Cryptozoic Entertainment, leading creator of board games, trading cards, and collectibles, and Rooster Teeth, pioneering media and entertainment company responsible for some of the biggest online series in history, today announced a partnership to release Million Dollars, But... The Game in July. Based on Rooster Teeth’s wildly popular series Million Dollars, But…, the addictive, easy-to-learn game has players put their morals and imagination to the test, posing the question, “What would you do for a million dollars?” After a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2016 that earned over $1 million, the game has been sold online and received a limited retail release. The partnership between Cryptozoic and Rooster Teeth will result in a much wider release for Million Dollars, But… The Game, making it available at hobby stores and other retailers nationwide.

Million Dollars, But… The Game

“At Cryptozoic, we’re huge fans of Rooster Teeth’s content and have loved playing Million Dollars, But... The Game at our game nights for a while,” said Jamie Kiskis, VP of Marketing & Product Development at Cryptozoic Entertainment. “So, when we saw an opportunity to partner with them to get the game into hobby stores, it was a no-brainer. It has already been a ton of fun to work with their team. We think it’s a partnership that will benefit both companies and lead to more collaborations in the near future.”

Burnie Burns, co-founder and Chief Creative Officer at Rooster Teeth, commented on the partnership:

"I'm thrilled folks will be able to buy Million Dollars, But... wherever they shop for games thanks to this partnership with Cryptozoic. Imagining friends and families gathering over a round of Million Dollars, But... makes me happy but I want to be perfectly clear that I accept no responsibility for what it does to their personal relationships. By reading this quote, you agree to this.”

In Million Dollars, But... The Game, 2-6 players (or more) each take four black Trigger Cards and four gold Rule Cards at the start of every round. After one player is chosen as the judge, the other players each create a scenario—using one Trigger and one Rule card—that proposes a situation in which someone gets a million dollars, but must do something distasteful in return. The judge reads these scenarios aloud and, then, the other players glorify or downplay the various scenarios. The winner of the round is the player who creates the scenario that the judge decides he or she would not do. The overall winner is the first player to win five rounds.

Million Dollars, But... The Game will be available at retailers nationwide in July for a suggested retail price of $25.
