We are going to spend all four days demoing games, running tournaments, and giving out prizes. We can’t wait to meet all the fans and kick off an incredible second half of the year!”

Cryptozoic will sell its three newest titles for the first time at the show, along with the first Epic Spell Wars collectible:

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 who buy it at Gen Con will also receive the Training Scenario Card “Learning the Ropes,” while supplies last. In addition, gamers can buy a limited edition playmat for $35.

Epic Spell WarsTM 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 Annilageddon Tournament Champion. Fans who purchase the game or any other Epic Spell Wars game from Cryptozoic at Gen Con will receive the exclusive Studd Spellslammer & The Juice! Promo Card Set, while supplies last. Gamers can also buy a limited edition playmat for $30.

Epic Spell Wars of the Battle Wizards Statue: Based on the popular Epic Spell Wars tabletop games, this 9-inch polyresin statue features Studd Spellslammer and The Juice!, one of the series’s Wizard champions and his sidekick, respectively. Capturing the over-the-top style of the art from the games, each limited edition statue is individually numbered 1-250 and will sell for $66.60.

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. Fans who purchase the game at Cryptozoic’s booth at Gen Con will receive the exclusive Dracula’s Castle Location Deck, while supplies last.
