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.

Cryptozoic Entertainment and Cartoon Network Enterprises announced the May 30 release of Rick and Morty: The Ricks Must Be Crazy Multiverse Game. In this engine-building tabletop game, 2-4 players take on the roles of Rick, Morty, Zeep, and Kyle as they introduce Power Supplies to different worlds, and then try to use the resulting Power to activate Contraptions before their opponents. Based on the Rick and Morty episode “The Ricks Must Be Crazy,” gameplay takes place in four “’Verses” with unique attributes: the Rickverse, Microverse, Miniverse, and Teenyverse.
“This is an engine-building game in a way,” said Matt Hyra, the game’s Lead Designer. “Except that Power Supplies don’t have ownership, so if you can predict where a Power surplus will appear, you can take advantage of it … if your opponents don’t get to it first!”
During the Action Phase, players spend Actions to move to different ’Verses where they can build Power Supplies and Contraptions. Then, during the Power-Up Phase, Power generates from the bottom ’Verse up, and players utilize it to play One-Shot cards, use Character Abilities, and power-up their Contraptions. The winner is the player who scores the needed Victory Points by building Power Supplies and activating Contraptions.
Rick and Morty: The Ricks Must Be Crazy Multiverse Game will be available at retailers nationwide starting May 30 and at Origins Game Fair (June 13-17 at the Greater Columbus Convention Center) for a suggested retail price of $20.
2-4 players, ages 17+, 30-45 minutes
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.

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.
