Cryptozoic Announces DC Deck Building Expansion Pack 4

Aug 12, 2018

Cryptozoic Entertainment announced the release of DC Deck-Building Game: Crisis Expansion Pack 4.

The expansion can be added to any game in the popular DC Deck-Building Game series to introduce cooperative play, Unity cards that can combine for powerful effects, and Personal Crisis cards that directly affect the owner of the card.

“Personal Crises are a new twist we wanted to explore after the world-altering Crises of the previous three expansions,” explained Matt Dunn, the game’s lead designer. “DC’s Teen Titans stories have always explored the relationships as much as crime-fighting, and that is reflected in the up-close-and-personal nature of the Crisis effects in this set.”

In the expansion, the keyword “Unity” is found on several Ongoing cards. When a Unity card is played, the player gains the benefit of that card, as well as well the benefits of any other Unity cards that are already in play. Therefore, gameplay rewards teamwork, as players can take advantage of each other’s Unity cards.

The set’s Personal Crisis cards cause Ongoing detrimental effects that impact individual members of the team, frequently hampering them in some way. Despite being targeted at one player, Personal Crises can end up taking down the whole team by depleting the main deck. The other players can help a player overcome a Personal Crisis, underlining again that teamwork is the key to victory.

Though the game works with any DC Deck-Building Game base set, it is optimized to work with DC Deck-Building Game: Teen Titans. It features Crisis versions of eight DC Teen Titans Super Heroes and comes with six DC Super Hero cards based on the Titans, original members of the Teen Titans who are all grown up: Arsenal, Donna Troy, Nightwing, Omen, Tempest, and The Flash.

Teen Titans Go! Deck Building Game Announced by Cryptozoic

Nov 22, 2017

Cryptozoic Entertainment announced the November 29 release of Teen Titans Go! Deck-Building Game.

In this two-player game based on the popular TV show Teen Titans Go!, each player becomes a member of the team—Robin, Starfire, Cyborg, Beast Boy, or Raven—and engages in a friendly competition to take down DC Super-Villains such as Blackfire and the H.I.V.E. Five. Each player starts with one DC Super Hero, but is able to recruit “Sidekicks,” other Titans who can help the player. Each DC Super Hero has a Sidekick version on the back with information on how to recruit it.

In the game, players can have multiple Sidekicks, gaining full access to the abilities on their cards. Potential Sidekicks are comprised of all the DC Super Heroes that are not chosen at the start of play. Players can recruit and steal them by playing specific cards, which can create an additional level of conflict as players take Sidekicks away from their competitors.

Teen Titans Go! Deck-Building Game will be available at retailers nationwide November 29 for a suggested retail price of $25. The game utilizes Cryptozoic’s popular Cerberus Engine, meaning it can be combined with other Cerberus deck-building games to expand game play.

Cryptozoic and Cartoon Network Enterprises Announce Release of Rick and Morty: Close Rick-Counters of the Rick Kind Deck-Building Game

Nov 6, 2017

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.
