Cryptozoic and Cartoon Network Enterprises Will Release Rick and Morty: Anatomy Park — The Game
Tile-Laying Game Based on Adult Swim’s Rick and Morty TV Series Lets Players Build a Theme Park Inside a Human Body
Lake Forest, CA – June 27, 2017 – Cryptozoic Entertainment, leading creator of board games, trading cards, and collectibles, and Cartoon Network Enterprises today announced the July 12 release of Rick and Morty: Anatomy Park — The Game. Based on the “Anatomy Park” episode of Adult Swim’s popular Rick and Morty animated TV series, the theme park-building, tile-laying game sends 2-4 players into the body of Ruben, a homeless department store Santa, in order to save the microscopic amusement park built from his organs. Players must design the best park possible by placing Tiles while simultaneously avoiding and fighting Diseases.
“We have all the fan-favorite rides and attractions from the episode, plus a host of new ones as well,” said Matt Hyra, Lead Game Designer at Cryptozoic. “Every Tile, whether from the show or a new creation, features original art by Robb Mommaerts. It’s a grossly beautiful game!”
In Rick and Morty: Anatomy Park — The Game, players become characters from the episode—choosing from Rick, Morty, Dr. Xenon Bloom, Annie, Poncho, and Roger—as they try to build Anatomy Park. Most of a player’s turn is devoted to the Move and Action Phases, which consist of one Move and one Action each turn. During the Move Phase, a player can move his or her Character, a Tile, or all Diseases. Every time a player moves a Tile, he or she must draw a Bodily Reaction Card to reflect that Ruben’s internal organs are being shifted around. A Bodily Reaction Card can force the player to act out the (usually embarrassing) title of the card and result in various immediate or short-term ongoing effects, or it can cause a new Disease—such as Tuberculosis and Hepatitis A—to show up inside Ruben.
During the Action Phase, there are five Actions that can be chosen: Draw, Place a Tile, Play a Focus Group, Shoot a Disease, or Exit. Each Tile (types include Attraction, Food, and Ride) will score a certain number of Victory Points when placed in the park, with some Tiles scoring more points if placed next to specific other Tiles.
The winner is the player who scores the most Victory Points at the end of the game, which occurs when one of three conditions is met: drawing the first Heart Attack from the Bodily Reaction deck (giving players two rounds until the game ends), drawing the second Heart Attack, or running out of Tiles twice.
Rick and Morty: Anatomy Park — The Game will be available at retailers nationwide July 12 for a suggested retail price of $30.
