July 15, 2018

In the game, one player plays as Pickle Rick as he tries to escape a heavily armed compound, while the other player takes on the roles of both the Russians and Jaguar as they try to stop him. The Pickle Rick player uses weapons cards to dole out damage and Air Vents to get out of jams as he or she tries to get to the Rooftop. The Pickle Rick and Jaguar miniatures are moved across a dynamic board made up of tiles that are constantly being added, rotated, and flipped. Once play is over, everything can be placed right back into the Pickle Rick game case.

Rick and Morty: The Pickle Rick Game will initially be available in limited quantities at Cryptozoic’s Booth #115 at San Diego Comic-Con, at Booth #601 at Gen Con, and via Cryptozoic’s eStore.

Cryptozoic Releases Wallet, a 2-7 Player Party Game

July 12, 2018

Cryptozoic Entertainment announced the July 11 release of Wallet.

In this party game, 2-7 players compete to find money and an ID that will convince the cops of their innocence. The game is played using an actual wallet with multiple pockets and zippered areas that allow players both to take game cards and put them back, as they try to improve their own chances at victory and lead their opponents into traps. Each fast-paced round lasts only 10 minutes, and an entire match is over in just 30 minutes.

Wallet is a party game in the truest sense: easy-to-learn, fast, filled with surprises, and loads of fun!” commented Adam Sblendorio, Vice President of Creative at Cryptozoic. “We think players will have a great time reaching into the wallet to find currencies from around the world and the IDs of colorful characters. And when they’re done playing, the whole game can be stored right in the wallet!”

The objective in Wallet to collect as many Victory Points as possible by being the richest innocent player at the end of each round. A player is normally declared innocent if he or she has exactly one ID, no more than 500 currency units (CU), and no more than two types of currencies at the end of the round. However, some cards and IDs alter these conditions by adding various restrictions and bonuses.

During a turn, a player can perform one of the following actions: take a card from the wallet,  put a card from his or her hand in the wallet, buy an ID, or flip an Hourglass card. A round is over when all six Hourglass cards are flipped. At the end of the third round, the player with the most Victory Points is declared the winner.
