The titles demoed at Cryptozoic’s booth include:
Challenge of the Superfriends Card Game: Based on the classic TV series, this game uses Cryptozoic’s new Gryphon card game engine for fast-paced, easy-to-learn gameplay for 2-4 players. Taking on the roles of Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and Batman and Robin, all players simultaneously reveal their Power Cards to call forth allies or Super Powers that can change the course of the battle against the Legion of Doom.
Rick and Morty: Looks Who’s Purging Now Card Game: Based on the popular TV show episode, this game utilizes Cryptozoic’s new Gryphon card game engine to deliver gameplay that unfolds at lightning speed and is easy to learn. It features simultaneous play, as 2 to 4 players become Rick, Morty, and others and play their Weapon Cards simultaneously to rack up kills during the annual Festival.
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 from the DC Universe. In the game, 2-4 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.
Epic Spell WarsTM of the Battle Wizards: ANNIHILAGEDDON Deck-Building Game: The first Epic Spell Wars deck-building game features the popular series’ trademark mature themes and art. In the game, 2-5 players battle each other for magical Mayhem, Spell, Wizard, Treasure, and Creature cards (among other card types) to win the Annihilageddon trophy.
