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 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.

1986’s Watchmen is one of the most celebrated stories in the history of comics. And now that world is coming to you from Cryptozoic Entertainment in the new Crossover Pack 4: Watchmen for their DC Comics Deck-building Game, available in stores now

This expanded Crossover pack includes Hidden Roles, Villainous Machinations, Challenge Cards, Mastermind Plots, plus new main deck cards and new oversized Super Hero cards.

This Watchmen set adds a new element to deck-building games: Hidden Roles! As in the original story, one of the members of the team has their own ideas on the best way to solve the world’s problems. The Villain must work towards his or her secret plot while not making it too obvious. “Loyal” players will strive to overcome various challenges, though the “Villain” of the story can disguise his or her intentions by helping with these challenges as well. Should the Mastermind Plot become hatched, the Loyal players will certainly have their work cut out for them…

It all adds up to a deck-building experience like nothing you’ve experienced before, yet played out using the best-selling Cerberus Deck-building Game engine!

This is not a standalone product. DC Comics Deck-building Game, Heroes Unite, Forever Evil, or Teen Titans is required to play.
