Cryptozoic Announces Rick and Morty: The Rickshank Rickdemption Deck-Building Game

Cryptozoic always did have really long titles for games. This one certainly clocks in there as one of their longer ones. It's the Rick and Morty: The Rickshank Rickdemption Deck-Building Game. 9 words. 7 if you don't count the "and" or "the." So, what's the game going to have, besides taking up lots of space on sell sheets with a title like that? Let's have a look.

Cryptozoic Announces Batman Ninja Set For DC Deck-Building Game

It's always interesting to see a classic character we all know and place them into different cultures and see how they might've been envisioned if they had originally be created in those cultures. In this case, what if Batman had been created in Japan, and was a ninja instead of a detective? Well, you can see how that'd work out on your game tables with DC Deck-Building Game Crossover Pack 8: Batman Ninja, coming soon from Cryptozoic.

Cryptozoic Announces DC Spyfall

The greatest superheroes in the DC universe are gathering together for a secret meeting. However, everything isn't as it seems. One of them isn't who they say they are.

I'm Pickle Rick!

The DC Deck-Building Game is getting a new expansion. This one is Crossover Pack 7: New Gods. In it, players can take on the role of one of the New Gods, both heroes and villains.

Million Dollars, But... The Game Coming From Cryptozoic and Rooster Teeth

If I had a million dollars we wouldn't have to walk to the store.
If I had a million dollars we'd take a limousine 'cause it costs more.
If I had a million dollars we wouldn't have to eat Kraft dinner.
Though saying what you'd do if you had a million dollars is jumping the gun. First, you've gotta get the million dollars. And that's not so easy. What've you got to do? That's up to the other players in Million Dollars, But... The Game. Cryptozoic has teamed up with Rooster Teeth to give this originally-Kickstarter-funded game a much wider release.

The Ricks Must Be Crazy Card Game Coming May 30th

I'm woefully behind on watching certain shows that I've been meaning to look at for quite some time. Rick & Morty is one of them. I've seen a shotgun of episodes here and there, but I really mean to buckle in and just go through the series. Then, I'll have a better handle of what's going on in The Ricks Must be Crazy, the new card game coming from Cryptozoic. Well, I've got until the 30th, as that's when the game will hit shelves.

Cryptozoic Running Cult: Choose Your God Wisely Kickstarter

There's a lot of deities out there. Priests and cultists are always trying to find more recruits to join their religion. With more followers comes more power for your god. It's a race for not just the souls of those in the cult, but for everyone. That's what you'll be doing in Cult, the new board game from Cryptozoic that's up on Kickstarter now.

Cryptozoic To Launch Cult: Choose Your God Wisely Board Game Kickstarter

I don't know what happens after we die. I don't know if there's any god or gods out there in the universe, watching. But if you're part of a cult, you're pretty sure there is. But what god do you follow? That's the first choice you need to make in Cult: Choose Your God Wisely, a new board game coming to Kickstarter from Cryptozoic and Idrology. It will launch next week on the 28th.

Cryptozoic Previews Toy Fair Previews

Yeah, I know, it's a funny headline, but it's what we've got. Cryptozoic has posted up a preview of the games that they will be previewing at New York Toy Fair 2018 (which is less than a week away). They'll have two Rick and Morty games, two DC Deck-Building sets, and a pair of standalone board games.

The Arrival Now Available From Cryptozoic

I had really thought about making the headline, "Cryptozoic announces the arrival of The Arrival" but decided against it. Still, obviously I made it the opening to the post. Anyway, The Arrival puts players in control of a Tribe, and they are looking to gain more territory in ancient Ireland from the other Tribes, as well as the demon-like Fomori. It was originally a limited release at Essen, but the rest of us can now get a hold of the game.

Cryptozoic Announces Teen Titans Go! Deck-Building Game

Well, this game's name is at least a bit shorter than what Cryptozoic has been putting out lately. This time around, they take on Teen Titans Go! with a new Deck-Building game, appropriately titled the Teen Titans Go! Deck-Building Game (one thing you have to say, you know exactly what you're getting when you read that name). So grab a cup of hot salad water and get ready to fight!

Cryptozoic Announces Release of Epic Spell Wars of the Battle Wizards: Melee at Murdershroom Marsh

You know... I don't think anyone makes games with names as long as Cryptozoic does. Full disclosure, I'm copy/pasting that name in this article. I've got to much to do to type out Epic Spell Wars of the Battle Wizards: Melee at Murdershroom Marsh every time I want to mention Epic Spell Wars of the Battle Wizards: Melee at Murdershroom Marsh. I mean, there's just so many words in Epic Spell Wars of the Battle Wizards: Melee at Murdershroom Marsh, that if I were to simply type out Epic Spell Wars of the Battle Wizards: Melee at Murdershroom Marsh every time, that'd be the second half of my day!
Anyway, the expansion's coming later this month.

Cryptozoic Announces DC Deck-Building Game: Confrontations

Comic books are filled with confrontations. I mean, it wouldn't be all that interesting if Superman just went to work as Clark Kent, had a standard day where nothing happened, and then went home at night. Not really thrilling. So you've got supervillains and even rogue superheroes and all other sorts of things going on. If you want to play some of those out on your tabletop, especially as a group effort, you can check out the new expansion for the DC Deck-Building Game. It's called, appropriately enough, Confrontations. It's due out in just under 2 weeks.

Rick and Morty: Close Rick-Counters of the Rick Kind Deck-Building Game Coming November 15th

I mean... I've seen games with long names before. But I think this one wins the overall record. Cryptozoic has announced that their new deck-building card game will be available on November 15th. The name of the game? Rick and Morty: Close Rick-Counters of the Rick Kind Deck-Building Game. Yes, I'm copy/pasting that, because it takes too long to type out Rick and Morty: Close Rick-Counters of the Rick Kind Deck-Building Game when you want to talk about the Rick and Morty: Close Rick-Counters of the Rick Kind Deck-Building Game.
