Today we’re getting a look at three new Rick and Morty games that will be coming out later this year. If you’re a Rick and Morty fan you’re not going to want to miss this!
Rick and Morty have been gaining popularity with every episode they release, and it looks like it will be getting the celebrity treatment with three games planned for 2018. Let’s see what Cryptozoic Entertainment had to say about the new Rick and Morty games they will be previewing at Toy Fair, February 17-20 at the Javits Center in New York City.
Release Date: Q2, 2018
In this engine-building game, 2-4 players take on the roles of Rick, Morty, Zeep, and Kyle as they introduce Power-making technology to different worlds, and then try to get that Power 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. Players spend Actions to build Power Supplies and Contraptions and move to different `Verses. At the end of each round, Power generates from the bottom ’Verse up, and players utilize it to play One-Shot abilities, use Character Abilities, and power-up their Contraptions.
- 60 Game Cards
- 32 Build/Control Tokens
- 5 Action Tokens
- 4 Oversized ’Verse Tiles
- 4 Oversized Character Cards
- 4 VP Tracking Tokens
- 4 Character Standees
- 1 First Player Token
- 1 Power/VP Track
- 1 Power Tracking Token
A 2-4 player game that’s based on “The Ricks Must Be Crazy” episode where Rick created a mini world to power his vehicle and told the inhabitants that the middle finger meant “peace amongst worlds” seems like it’s going to keep you entertained on the concept alone! Stack that with the fact that you have to introduce Power-making technology to different worlds, and then try to get it before your opponent, this could make for a fun-filled game with a lot of “peace amongst worlds” being thrown.
Rick and Morty: The Pickle Rick Game:
This intense 1-2 player game is based on the hugely popular “Pickle Rick” episode of Adult Swim’s Rick and Morty. 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 game includes both Pickle Rick and Jaguar miniatures that are moved across a dynamic board made up of tiles that are constantly being added, rotated, and flipped. Adding to the off-the-wall fun is the game’s packaging: It looks like a pickle!
Pickle Rick has to be one of the fan favorites, that is if you could narrow it down to just a couple “best” episodes. This is going to be a 1-2 player game where one player plays Pickle Rick trying to escape the Russian compound and the other player plays as the Russians and Jaguar. The board is dynamic, which simply means that it will change as the game goes on, and tiles will be added. You’ll get both a Pickle Rick and Jaguar mini, and the best part is the packaging is in the shape of a Pickle. What more could you ask for?
Rick and Morty: The Rickshank Rickdemption Deck-Building Game:
Box art not final
This 2-4 player sequel to Rick and Morty: Close Rick-Counters of the Rick Kind Deck-Building Game features a set of Council cards that cause players to vote to enact new rules, dramatic one-time effects, and other mysterious situations. Access Tokens give players votes and chances to devalue the Galactic Federation currency from 1 to 0. The game exudes off-the-wall Rick and Morty art and gameplay, even including a Szechuan Sauce card.
The Rickshank Redemption is a 2-4 player deck-building game is a sequel to the Close Rick-Counters of the Rick Kind Deck-Building game. It will feature new Council cards, Access Tokens, and a Szechuan Sauce card which we can’t wait to see what that one does.
All three of these games seem like they’re going to be a lot of fun, and we can’t wait to find out more. Make sure you’re checking back in with us for the latest updates.
