ACD Distribution posted an article cluing us in on three new releases coming out in June of 2016 from Cryptozoic Entertainment. First is Rick and Morty: Total Rickall Card Game which is a cooperative deduction card game based on the cartoon episode of the same name. Parasites have infiltrated your home and are masquerading as family members and close friends, it is up to you and your friends to figure out who the parasites are and take them out. The game is for 2 to 5 players and plays in only 30 minutes.
Next is a social deduction game that is similar to Good Cop, Bad Cop called Internal Affairs. This game takes a much gritty approach to the game but has some similar mechanisms in the multiple faction cards where the majority you have determines which team your on, and the end game condition is to reveal two people of the opposing team to win. However, to make it unique you also have the possibility of changing teams mid game, allowing you to switch sides if you see the opposing team about to win. The game plays a crowd of 2 to 8 players and will play in about 20 minutes.
Last is the next expansion set for the Adventure Time Card Wars game, Doubles Tournament, which turns this two player game into a four player team game. While the expansion includes new landscapes, heroes, and a load of new cards, it has a focus on team play and so includes rules for having a 2v2 game of Adventure Time Card Wars. The good news is that even if you don’t play the new team version, a lot of the cards in the set still work for the standard 2 player version of the game so don’t pass on this if you aren’t interested in the higher player count. The new team version plays 4 people and will last up to 45 minutes.

It seems someone always has their own agenda when this “team” gets together for a mission. In this mode, players are still working together, but everyone has their own definition of what a “win” really is. One player may even be secretly working against the rest of the team.
