Cryptozoic Announces Partnership with Tower Guard Games to Release Train Heist Board Game

After Successful Kickstarter Campaign, Acclaimed Game Will Receive Wide Retail Release in 2017 Lake Forest, CA – October 7, 2016 – Cryptozoic Entertainment, leading creator of board games, trading cards, and collectibles, today announced its partnership with Tower Guard Games for a wide release of Train Heist in early 2017.

In this cooperative board game of “rightin’ wrongs and robbin’ trains,” 2 to 4 players take the role of a band of cowboys who work together to stop the corrupt Sheriff and the rich folks of Notting County from stealing all of the townsfolk's earnings. Creator Sean McDonald ran a successful Kickstarter campaign for the game in 2015 that earned double its initial funding goal. Reviews for the game were overwhelmingly positive and it stayed on BoardGameGeek’s “Hotness” list for most of 2015. As the publisher for the game, Cryptozoic will provide a widespread retail release and help it find a much larger audience.
