Cryptozoic Entertainment Announces Exciting New Customizable Racing Board Game

Launching in August, Hot Rod Creeps Pits Players against Each Other

in a One-of-a-Kind Racing Game

Irvine, CA (July 18, 2012)—Cryptozoic Entertainment™, the premier developer of licensed and original games including The Walking Dead™ Board Game and Epic Spell Wars of the Battle Wizards: Duel at Mt. Skullzfyre, is proud to announce Hot Rod Creeps,an exciting and new original board game that takes competitive racing to an all-new level. Launching in August, Hot Rod Creeps brings all the action of over-the-top racing to the tabletop. The battle begins as players customize their own devilish racetracks using the more than 50 interlocking track tiles that are included in the game. Once the track is complete, players race their own team of cars using custom 20-card decks as their “gas tank” to speed their cars around the track. Hot Rod Creeps is a fun and easy-to-learn game that is perfect both causal and competitive players.

“This is just a really fun game,” said Cory Jones, president and chief creative officer at Cryptozoic. “We’ve had a blast creating it, and we’ve focused on making sure that each race can be as unique and challenging as players want. At 30-45 minutes a game, it’s fast-paced racing excitement the whole way through.”

In Hot Rod Creeps, two to six players can choose from among six Hot Rod teams: Epic Battle Wizards, Monsters, Rockabilly, Food Fight, Aliens, The Underworld, and Monsters. Each team has its own theme, strategy and deck. To race around the track, players must decide whether to proceed cautiously or to take risks and amp up their speed with the powerful but dangerous Nitro deck. Each player’s Hot Rod can also be customized with special upgrades like engines, wheels, weapons and pit crews to help boost its chances of crushing the competition.

Available in local hobby stores and from online retailers in August for an MSRP of $45.00, Hot Rod Creepsis a one-of-a-kind customizable racing game that lets players devise racetracks that are as wild and crazy as they want. With the construction of each new racetrack, players get the thrill of a brand new race.
