Based on the Work of the Popular Artist and Hailing from Cryptozoic’s Dynomite Games, Second Set of Easy-to-Learn Games Arrives on Kickstarter Today
Lake Forest, CA – November 24, 2021 – Cryptozoic Entertainment, leading creator of tabletop games, trading cards, and collectibles, today announced the launch of the Kickstarter campaign for Steven Rhodes Games Vol. 2, featuring three titles: Cryptozoology for Beginners, Living Well Is the Best Revenge, and Let’s Call the Exorcist. The games are based on the work of Steven Rhodes, an artist known for his offbeat reimagining of children’s activity books from the 1970s and 1980s. They hail from Dynomite Games, an old-school sub-brand of Cryptozoic that creates games featuring easy-to-learn gameplay with very little setup time, while offering hidden depth to satisfy hardcore gamers.
Prospective backers can check out the Kickstarter page now to pledge for one of the games, two of them, or all three in a Kickstarter Exclusive slipcase. There will be several stretch goals for Kickstarter Exclusive content and upgrades that can be unlocked over the course of the campaign. In addition, backers who missed the first Steven Rhodes Games Kickstarter can pledge to get the Kickstarter Exclusive versions of those three games in a slipcase. Finally, retailers can participate in the campaign via a special tier.
"It’s been a very cool experience to see how my designs have been adapted into a larger world of their own,” said Steven Rhodes. “Cryptozoic has done a phenomenal job of capturing the retro vibe and warped humor of my artwork to produce such a fun and collectible set of high quality games."
“The response to our first Steven Rhodes Games has been overwhelmingly positive, so we are thrilled to work with Steven again on three new games that are inspired by his hilarious art,” said Cory Jones, co-founder of Cryptozoic. “All three titles embody our Dynomite Games brand, as we bring together rules that can be learned in five minutes and real elements of strategy. Whether you’re a casual or hobby gamer, there’s a ton of fun and surprises in each bite-sized game.”
