Archer: The Danger Zone! Board Game Nominated For 2015 Origins Award
Lake Forest, CA – June 2, 2015 – Cryptozoic Entertainment (www.cryptozoic.com) will again exhibit this year at the Origins Game Fair. Cryptozoic’s booth can be found in Hall D, the main gaming hall. Their booth, #D-201, will feature game demos, new products, tournaments and retail sales. Members of the Cryptozoic team will also be on hand to answer questions from fans and press.
New Products Launching at Origins
The SPYFALL deduction card game and Adventure Time Card Wars: Ice King vs. Marceline trading card game will be available to purchase for the first time at Origins before they are released to the general public.
SPYFALL is an easy-to-learn card game of bluffing, probing questions, clever answers and suspicion. At the start of each round, players receive a secret card informing them of the group's location – a casino, space station, pirate ship, circus, (30 unique locations), except that one player receives the SPY card instead of the location. The Spy doesn’t know where they are, but wins the round if they can figure it out before they blow their cover.
The new expansion of the Adventure Time Card Wars game will be demonstrated and sold. In this release, the Ice King and his IcyLands deck take on Marceline’s dark and crafty Useless Swamps & NiceLands deck. Featuring the first all-new Landscape including 96 percent new cards, this Collector’s Pack gives you over 45 never-before-seen cards.
