Cryptozoic and Warner Bros. Consumer Products Announce Release of
Social Deduction Game in Which One Player Is Secretly The Joker Will Debut at Gen Con at Cryptozoic’s Booth #601
Lake Forest, CA – July 31, 2018 – Cryptozoic Entertainment, leading creator of board games, trading cards, and physical and digital collectibles, and Warner Bros. Consumer Products, on behalf of DC Entertainment, today announced the limited release of DC Spyfall at Gen Con, August 2-5, followed by a full retail release on August 8.
In this new iteration of the social deduction game Spyfall, 3-8 players take on the roles of DC’s greatest Super Heroes as they have a secret meeting at an iconic location, such as the Batcave, Daily Planet, or the Fortress of Solitude. The twist is that one of them is secretly The Joker in disguise. In the intense 8-minute rounds, the non-Joker players ask questions and give answers to deduce which one of them is the Clown Prince of Crime without giving away the location, while The Joker player tries to figure out the location before his or her identity is revealed.
“You don’t need to be a DC superfan to play,” explained Matt Hyra, Cryptozoic’s R&D Lead. “Maybe not everyone knows about Atlantis as it relates to the DC Universe, for example, but everyone can talk about it being underwater. Each location also has a brief description on it, so players can learn as they play.”
DC Spyfall features four modules that add even more variety to the classic Spyfall gameplay. The Powered-Up Module gives each player an Ability card that can provide a One-Shot ability or give that player a restriction. When playing with the Harley Quinn Helper Module, one player is secretly Harley Quinn and tries to help The Joker player win without knowing that player’s identity or revealing his or her own identity
Creating even more zany gameplay are the last two modules. The Joker’s Jest Module introduces an all-Joker deck that can result in everyone playing as The Joker. The player who stops play and correctly recognizes that everyone has Joker cards is the winner. Finally, the Multiverse Madness Module gives most or all of the players different Location cards. It is up to a player to recognize this and get a majority of the others to agree with him or her.
DC Spyfall will be available in limited quantities at Cryptozoic’s Booth #601 at Gen Con before hitting retailers nationwide August 8 for a suggested retail price of $25. At Gen Con, fans who purchase the game will receive a promo The Swamp Location deck. In addition, anyone who spends $15 at Cryptozoic’s booth will get a free Comic Book Convention Location deck.
