Cryptozoic Entertainment has announced that a lot of things to appease the geek appetite for pop culture toys and collectibles. However what really got my eyes on is that the company will be releasing three new board games that is based on currently animated series, Rick & Morty, Attack on Titan, and the classic, Batman: The Animated Series.
So first up,
Rick and Morty: Anatomy Park – The Game
If you’re a fan of the Rick and Morty series, there’s this one episode where Rick actually created an anatomy park inside a homeless person, with his partner Dr. Xenon Bloom (voiced by John Oliver). Anatomy park – The Game builds on that episode by allowing players to re-create the scenes in the series as 2-4 players will now work in order to save the microscopic amusement park.
Here’s a rundown of the contents the board game will be carrying:
- 46 Park Tiles
- 9 Focus Group Tiles
- 24 Bodily Reaction Cards
- 6 Master Plan Cards
- 3 Dice
- 6 Oversized Character Cards
- 6 Character Standees
- 6 Disease Standees
- Lots of Victory Points Tokens
- 30 Control Cubes (5 each of 6 different colors)
Based from the description off the Cryptozoic website, the game will let players experience the same thing as what they did in the episode except the lack of someone who is sabotaging the park.

The second game on Cyptozoic’s list is
Attack on Titan: The Last Stand
The Last Stand pits one player against one player who will be playing as a Titan. Like the series, the game requires strategic utilization of dice and features unique vertical gameplay which is something that rarely been seen in a board game.
Game components include:
- 1 giant Titan standee with 6 platforms
- 20 custom dice
- 1 buildable two-tiered tower
- 12 citizens tokens
- 4 wooden cannons
- 12 heart tokens
- 32 Titan cards
- 7 Tactic cards
- 4 Heroes cards
- 8 player pieces
You can check out with the trailer below:
The game comes with a 15-inch tall Titan Standee with a tower that players can also play around with a tower as well. So it’s going to be interesting to see how things could play out once we get hold a copy of the game.
So for the third and final game, you have:
Batman: The Animated Series Almost Got ‘Im Card Game
Batman: The Animated series earns a special heart in Batman fans since it has sustained a lingering appeal even this day and age. So Cryptozoic Entertainment is scratching that itch with the Almost Got ‘Im Card Game.
