Cryptozoic Entertainment and Cartoon Network Enterprises announced the November 15 release of Rick and Morty: Close Rick-Counters of the Rick Kind Deck-Building Game.

Based on the Season 1 episode of Adult Swim’s hit series Rick and Morty that features a multitude of Ricks and Mortys from different realities, the deck-building game allows 2-5 players to become various versions of Rick as they try to take down the Council of Ricks and Evil Rick. This competitive game utilizes Cryptozoic’s popular Cerberus Engine in new ways, as players use Portal Guns to access the otherworldly Location deck, which includes many of the bizarre places Rick and Morty visit in the fan-favorite TV series.

“With new card types ‘Rick’ and ‘Morty,’ you know you’re going to see a ton of the various wacky Ricks and Mortys found in the episode,” commented Cryptozoic’s Matt Hyra, the game’s Lead Designer. “But don’t worry, the rest of the family is included. Beth, Summer, and Jerry are the worthless three cards that clog your deck early in the game. When you see some of the cards that interact with those three, you might not want to get rid of them.”

In the game, the Location stack features many of the outlandish worlds Rick and Morty travel to in “Close Rick-Counters of the Rick Kind” and other episodes from the series. Each time a player employs a Portal Gun, he or she may flip up the top card of the Location deck and utilize that Location during his or her turn. The player even has the option to pay the cost of the Location to add it to his or her deck.

Rick and Morty: Close Rick-Counters of the Rick Kind Deck-Building Game will be available at retailers nationwide November 15 for a suggested retail price of $40. The first run of the game will include a “Promo Rick” oversized Rick card in every box.

The game adds an element of surprise with cards that have the new keyword “Wonder,” which lets a player play the top card of the main deck, then add it to the the Line-Up of cards at the center of play. If a player likes the effect, he or she can buy the card from the Line-Up right away. Since this is a deck-building game, the more cards a player has to choose from, the better.

Cryptozoic Announces Rick and Morty: Anatomy Park

June 30, 2017

Cryptozoic Entertainment, leading creator of board games, trading cards, and collectibles, and Cartoon Network Enterprises today announced the July 12 release of Rick and Morty: Anatomy Park — The Game. Based on the “Anatomy Park” episode of Adult Swim’s popular Rick and Morty animated TV series, the theme park-building, tile-laying game sends 2-4 players into the body of Ruben, a homeless department store Santa, in order to save the microscopic amusement park built from his organs. Players must design the best park possible by placing Tiles while simultaneously avoiding and fighting Diseases.

In Rick and Morty: Anatomy Park — The Game, players become characters from the episode—choosing from Rick, Morty, Dr. Xenon Bloom, Annie, Poncho, and Roger—as they try to build Anatomy Park. Most of a player’s turn is devoted to the Move and Action Phases, which consist of one Move and one Action each turn. During the Move Phase, a player can move his or her Character, a Tile, or all Diseases. Every time a player moves a Tile, he or she must draw a Bodily Reaction Card to reflect that Ruben’s internal organs are being shifted around. A Bodily Reaction Card can force the player to act out the (usually embarrassing) title of the card and result in various immediate or short-term ongoing effects, or it can cause a new Disease—such as Tuberculosis and Hepatitis A—to show up inside Ruben.

During the Action Phase, there are five Actions that can be chosen: Draw, Place a Tile, Play a Focus Group, Shoot a Disease, or Exit. Each Tile (types include Attraction, Food, and Ride) will score a certain number of Victory Points when placed in the park, with some Tiles scoring more points if placed next to specific other Tiles.

The winner is the player who scores the most Victory Points at the end of the game, which occurs when one of three conditions is met: drawing the first Heart Attack from the Bodily Reaction deck (giving players two rounds until the game ends), drawing the second Heart Attack, or running out of Tiles twice.
