Cryptozoic Will Demo Latest Games at BGG.CON 2018
New Rick and Morty Deck-Building Game and DC Deck-Building Game: Rivals — Green Lantern vs. Sinestro Are Among Tabletop Games to Be Demoed at Booth #104
Lake Forest, CA – November 8, 2018 – Cryptozoic Entertainment, leading creator of board games, trading cards, and physical and digital collectibles, today announced that it will demo recently released tabletop games at BGG.CON 2018, November 14-18 in the Hyatt Regency DFW at the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport. Bringing game players, designers, and publishers together, the annual convention is hosted by BoardGameGeek, the popular and influential website for tabletop gaming.
Cryptozoic will be at Booth #104 in the Made in Texas (MIT) room demoing two tabletop games that were just released: Rick and Morty: The Rickshank Rickdemption Deck-Building Game and DC Deck-Building Game: Rivals — Green Lantern vs. Sinestro. In addition, Cryptozoic will demo Cult: Choose Your God Wisely before it is available at the end of this year, as well as recent releases Rick and Morty: The Pickle Rick Game and Pantone™: The Game.
All of these titles except Cult will be sold at the show through Common Ground Games, which will be at Booth #112 in the MIT room. They will also sell selected other games from Cryptozoic’s catalog.
“BGG.CON is one of the best events of the year for tabletop gamers due to its vast library of games, enthusiastic players, and well-organized play areas,” said Adam Sblendorio, Vice President of Creative at Cryptozoic. “We are extremely excited to be able to introduce players to our latest DC Deck-Building Game release, our new Rick and Morty deck-building game, and Cult: Choose Your God Wisely. We can’t wait to meet all the different gamers at the show and hear what they think!”
Cryptozoic will demo several 2018 games at the show, including:
Rick and Morty: The Rickshank Rickdemption Deck-Building Game: In this sequel to Rick and Morty: Close Rick-Counters of the Rick Kind Deck-Building Game, 2-5 players must buy powerful cards—like the Szechuan Sauce card—to build up their decks and take down the Galactic Federation and Seal Team Ricks. The game includes a set of Council cards that cause players to cast votes (using Access Tokens) in order to bid for cards, punish a player, or make all players lose cards. At the end of the game, the player who has accumulated the most Victory Points from the cards in his or her deck wins. It can be combined with the first game for an even bigger experience.
DC Deck-Building Game: Rivals — Green Lantern vs. Sinestro: In this deck-building game that utilizes Cryptozoic’s popular Cerberus Engine, two players become iconic rivals Green Lantern and Sinestro and engage in direct Confrontations. As the game progresses, players buy more powerful cards and attack and defend until their opponent’s three oversized Character cards are defeated. Cryptozoic has also made available DC Deck-Building Game: 2018 Organized Play Kit 2, which includes instructions for stores to run tournaments for the DC Deck-Building Game, as well as a limited-edition Playmat, 12 Gypsy Hero Promo Cards, and a Gypsy poster. Retailers can order it from their distributors.
Cult: Choose Your God Wisely: This 2-5 player board game is a worker/Priest placement game with a unique take on in-game currency: Followers. Players choose Gods (each with special abilities) and send their Priests to places in the Eternal City in an attempt to bring their deities victory over the minds and souls of humanity. Followers are gained and sacrificed and Altars are built to the different Gods as they clash in this exciting new take on the genre. The game can be played now on Tabletopia, a virtual platform for board games co-founded by Igrology, before arriving at retailers later this year.
PantoneTM: The Game: In this easy-to-learn competitive party game, 2-20 players try to recognize characters from pop culture who are represented only by abstract arrangements of colors, inspired by Pantone™, the world’s leading color expert. Designed by Scott Rogers (Rayguns and Rocketships, the God of War video game series), the game has garnered glowing reviews from many outlets, including highly regarded podcast and YouTube channel The Dice Tower.
Rick and Morty: The Pickle Rick Game: This intense 1-2 player game is based on the hugely popular “Pickle Rick” episode of Adult Swim’s Rick and Morty. One player becomes Pickle Rick as he tries to escape a heavily armed compound, while the other player takes on the roles of both the Russians and Jaguar as they try to stop him. Adding to the off-the-wall fun is the collectible Pickle Rick game case that measures approximately 12.75 inches tall and holds all of the game’s components, including custom Pickle Rick and Jaguar playing pieces!
