SPYFALL Card Game from Cryptozoic Entertainment Wins Award from Shut Up & Sit Down 

Party game earns award from popular board game website 

Lake Forest, CA – July 24, 2015 – Cryptozoic Entertainment (cryptozoic.com) announces their game, SPYFALL is the recipient of the inaugural "Shut Up & Sit Down Recommends" award. Since 2011, the Shut Up & Sit Down website (shutupandsitdown.com) offers the world's best board game reviews. 

Cryptozoic Entertainment released the English language version of SPYFALL in June 2015, and is its exclusive worldwide distributor. Hobby World is the game publisher. The first print run of the English language game sold out in the first month of its release. The release of the next print run is planned for October 2015. SPYFALL will be available at hobby gaming retailers, comic book specialty, traditional book stores, Amazon.com and other fine retailers.

SPYFALL is an easy-to-learn card game of bluffing, probing questions, clever answers and suspicion. At the start of each round, players receive a secret card informing them of the group's location – a casino, space station, pirate ship, circus, (30 unique locations), except one player receives the SPY card instead of the location. The Spy doesn’t know where they are, but wins the round if they can figure it out before blowing their cover.

Quintin Smith, Managing Editor of Shut Up & Sit Down said, "We're proud to award Spyfall our highest accolade, the prestigious Shut Up & Sit Down Recommends badge. Alexandr Ushan has designed something equal parts funny and tense, smart and silly. And while we're not sure how that's possible, we do want everybody to know that this game comes with our seal of quality."
