Cryptozoic to Demo Games at BGG.CON 2016

Several of Cryptozoic’s Current and Upcoming Games Will Be Showcased at BoardGameGeek’s Annual Convention

Lake Forest, CA – November 9, 2016 – Cryptozoic Entertainment, leading creator of board games, trading cards, and collectibles, today announced that it will be demoing games at BGG.CON 2016, which takes place at the Hyatt Regency DFW Hotel in the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, November 16-20. The prestigious annual gaming convention is run by BoardGameGeek, the influential website for board game hobbyists, with its over 1 million users making up a large percentage of the attendees.

“The BGG.CON attendees are the most discerning in the business, and I think they are really going to like our newest offerings: Poker Assault, Batman: The Animated Series Almost Got ’Im Card Game, and the Attack on Titan Deck-Building Game,” said Matt Hyra, Lead Board Game Designer of Cryptozoic Entertainment. “I look forward to seeing their reactions!”

Cryptozoic will be at Booth #805 in the Aviator’s Hall demoing and offering chances to play many of its current and upcoming game releases, such as:

Attack on Titan Deck-Building Game — This 1-5 player card game is based on the hit anime series in which heroes try to protect the walls of the last remaining human city from the onslaught of giant marauding Titans. The game uses Cryptozoic’s popular Cerberus Engine with the addition of Movement, as well as other unique gameplay features that place players inside the world of Attack on Titan. This is the first Cerberus deck-building title with entirely cooperative play.

Attack on Titan Deck-Building Game

Batman: The Animated Series Almost Got ’Im Card Game — In this 5-8 player social deduction game based on the classic “Almost Got ’Im” episode of Batman: The Animated Series, players become various Villains of the Caped Crusader, one of whom is secretly Batman in disguise. Participants gather cards to form poker hands that activate special abilities, as the Villain players try to find out which one of them is Batman and the Batman player tries to Subdue the Villains before they discover his or her true identity.

 

Batman The Animated Series Almost Got 'Im

Rick and Morty: Mr. Meeseeks’ Box o' Fun Dice and Dares Game — In this adult dice game based on the Rick and Morty episode “Meeseeks and Destroy,” 2-6 players complete Requests and perform Dares to earn points. If a player cannot allocate the required dice to a Request, he or she presses the button on top of the Meeseeks Box and draws a Mr. Meeseeks card for help. If the player still can’t complete the Request, he or she has to do an embarrassing Dare. This can quickly get out of hand, as the player draws more Meeseeks cards and does more Dares turn after turn. If there are too many Meeseeks around, they turn angry and try to kill the player!

Rick and Morty: Total Rickall Cooperative Card Game — Labeled a “#1 New Release” by Amazon, the original printing of the game sold out in less than two weeks. This 2-5 player card game is based on the “Total Rickall” episode of Adult Swim’s Rick and Morty and features the TV show’s trademark zany humor. Players must contend with numerous crazy new characters who have suddenly appeared and determine which of these characters are real and which are parasites that must be exterminated. In Standard Mode, all the players work together, but in Advanced Mode there are hidden roles, as some players have a secret connection with the Parasites.

Poker Assault — The card game transforms poker into an easy-to-learn, 2-4 player game of combat in which players join factions and craft poker hands that the others must try to defend against. Each player chooses to join one of four factions: the Wolf Pack, Vampire Court, Rocket Patrol, or Invaders. The game adds another twist with cards that have special abilities in each deck, as well as formidable Power Cards that players can acquire if they make certain hands.
