Gamers have been really supportive of our DC Deck-Building Game and Epic Spell Wars series, so we can’t wait to hear what they think about the latest releases.”

Cryptozoic will demo and sell the following games:

Rick and Morty: The Morty Zone Dice Game: Based on the Season 4 premiere episode of Adult Swim’s Rick and Morty, the competitive roll-and-write game lets 2-4 players roll colored dice and check off numbers on their dry-erase Fate Boards to score points. Players can use Rick cards to reroll or remove some dice and can score additional points by meeting goals on Public Bonus Cards and Secret Death Crystal Tokens and by fulfilling Smith Family Bonuses.

DC Deck-Building Game Crossover Pack 8: Batman Ninja:  Based on the Batman Ninja animated feature, this expansion for the popular DC Deck-Building Game series is set in feudal Japan and allows 2-5 players to become Super Heroes who battle Super-Villains in giant castles that come to life. Moreover, it introduces cards with the keyword “Ninjutsu” that provide effects that can be invaluable to victory, particularly when the Super-Villains merge to form one final challenge. In addition, fans can buy the Gorilla Grodd Promo Card for $5 and the Batman Ninja Playmat for $25. Both items are Cryptozoic Exclusives and can also be purchased on the company’s eStore.

DC Deck-Building Game: Rebirth: This entry in the popular DC Deck-Building Game series breaks fresh ground with linked Campaign Scenarios, character progression, and character movement between iconic locations. In the game, 1-4 players become members of the Justice League and move their standees to find cards for their decks and defeat dastardly Villains. Each Scenario includes special rules, new cards, and different locations. Fans can also order the Cryptozoic-exclusive Rebirth Playmat for $30 on the company’s eStore.

Epic Spell Wars of the Battle Wizards: ANNIHILAGEDDON Deck-Building Game: The first Epic Spell Wars deck-building game features the trademark over-the-top, mature humor and art that fans have come to expect from the series. It utilizes Cryptozoic’s Cerberus Engine in innovative ways as 2-5 players become Wizards and try to buy magical Spell, Wizard, Treasure, and Creature cards—among other card types—in order to defeat their opponents and become the Annihilageddon Tournament Champion.

Spyfall: Time Travel: In this latest social deduction card game in the popular Spyfall series, 2-8 players take on roles in memorable locations from history, as well as some futuristic locations. In the intense timed rounds, the non-spy players ask questions and give answers to deduce which one of them is the spy without giving away the location, while the spy player tries to figure out the location before his or her identity is revealed. The locations include the Colosseum, the French Revolution, Leonardo’s Studio, and a Lunar Base, among many others across time.
