Lake Forest, CA – June 1, 2016 – Cryptozoic Entertainment (, leading designer and manufacturer of games, trading cards, and collectible merchandise, is launching a retail product demo program via Publishers Services Inc. (PSI) today. This exclusive program is for brick-and-mortar locations only and allows retailers to purchase select Cryptozoic titles at 75% off MSRP. Each year, retailers can purchase one copy (per retail location) of each available title at the discounted price directly through PSI.

The following games are currently being offered:

Epic Spell Wars: Duel at Mt. Skullzfyre   

Did you know that magical wizards are battling to the death—and beyond—right now!? "Why battle?" you might ask. "What have I got to prove, magic man?" Only who's the most awesomely powerful battle wizard in the entire realm, that's what! As a Battle Wizard in this TableTop-recommended game, you'll put together up to three spell components to craft millions of spell combos. Your spells might kick ass, or they could totally blow . . . it’s up to you to master the magic. Do you have what it takes to use epic spells in a war at Mt. Skullzfyre? Will YOU be the Ultimate Battle Wizard!?!


DC Comics Deck-building Game

In the ever popular DC Comics Deck-building Game, you take on the role of Batman™, Superman™, or one of their brave and heroic allies in the struggle against the forces of Super-Villainy! While you begin armed only with basic combat maneuvers, you will add new, more powerful cards to your deck as you go, with the goal of defeating as many of the DC Comics Super-Villains as you can. In the end, the player who has accumulated the most Victory Points from the cards in his or her deck wins the game!


The Walking Dead Board Game

In The Walking Dead Board Game, only the strong survive. The weak turn into walkers, and then turn against their former friends! Fight your way through walker-infested Atlanta with your fellow survivors. Take on the role of Rick, Andrea, or one of the other hapless survivors and scrounge for killer weapons like a shotgun or crossbow. Keep your eyes open for new allies, but watch your back! When supplies start running low, it’s every man for himself. If you can make it back to camp with enough gear to defend yourself and those you still care for, you win!


The Walking Dead Board Game: The Best Defense

In this co-operative game, players take on the roles of Rick, Glenn, Daryl, Michonne, and other characters from the hit TV series. The Survivors are on the hunt for Walkers and must defend four key Locations in order to stay alive: the Farm, Prison, Town, and Highway. Using oversized Location Tiles, the map board is built at random each game, providing for great replayability. Will your team survive the endless hordes of Walkers?

Portal: The Uncooperative Cake Acquisition Game

With a grinding of gears and some uneasy rumbling, Aperture Laboratories has resumed testing! Your team of Test Subjects have entered the Lab and are ready to perform all sorts of important, dignified, and dangerous testing procedures… all in the pursuit of Cake! It’s a fun and funny fast-paced fight to the finish. And by finish, we mean your team probably died.


Ghostbusters: The Board Game

In this episodic adventure game, one to four players are charged with busting ghosts and sealing gates to the Spirit World. The game is customizable, cooperative, and highly replayable. It features unique illustrations and figures based on original artwork and designs by Dan Schoening, the artist of IDW's Ghostbusters comic book series. Each Ghostbuster has a distinct role and unlocks unique abilities by gaining experience. The game offers modes for different levels of players, making it accessible to beginners and challenging to experts. Now is your chance to save the world!


Additional titles will be offered through the program in the future.
