Cryptozooic Entertainment has added two new titles to its list of licensed card games, which previously included Cartoon Network Crossover Crisis Deck-Building Game, Adventure Time Card Wars, Attack on Titan Deck-Building Game, and Rick and Morty: Close Rick-Counters of the Rick Kind Deck-Building Game. Cartoon Network Crossover Crisis: Animation Annihilation Deck-Building Game is a new stand-alone expansion, which will play like its successful predecessor, and be 100% compatible, adding more Cartoon Network characters to the pool.
In addition, a new “Wonder” keyword explores the childlike sense of wonder from these cartoons. In Teen Titans GO! Deck-Building Game, 2 players can take on the roles of their favorite Teen Titan characters, Robin, Starfire, Beast Boy, Raven and Cyborg, taking on a pile of 6 supervillains. Most points after the villains are defeated determines the winner. Teen Titans GO! Comes with 164 cards, and 6 oversized hero cards.
Cartoon Network Crossover Crisis: Animation Annihilation Deck-Building Game and Teen Titans GO! Deck-Building Game are due for release in November 2017.
Origins is one of the biggest conventions in the US for gaming, and they have been giving out their awards for the best each year.
