Cryptozoic Entertainment and Cartoon Network Enterprises announced the limited release of Rick and Morty: The Pickle Rick Game at San Diego Comic-Con, July 19-22, and Gen Con, August 2-5, followed by a full retail release this September.
Cryptozoic also plans to make a limited quantity of the game available for purchase on its eStore during the summer.
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. It will subsequently be available at retailers nationwide this September for a suggested retail price of $45.
