Cryptozoic and Cartoon Network Enterprises Announce Release of Cartoon Network Crossover Crisis: Animation Annihilation Deck-Building Game
November 6, 2017

Second Game in Series Features Fan-Favorite Characters from Various Cartoon Network TV Series and New Gameplay Elements

Lake Forest, CA – November 3, 2017 Cryptozoic Entertainment, leading creator of board games, trading cards, and collectibles, and Cartoon Network Enterprises today announced the November 15 release of Cartoon Network Crossover Crisis: Animation Annihilation Deck-Building Game. The game allows 2-4 players to become characters from fan-favorite Cartoon Network shows such as The Powerpuff Girls, Adventure Time, Uncle Grandpa, Cow and Chicken, The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy, and Ed, Edd n Eddy. The game utilizes Cryptozoic’s popular Cerberus Engine, which has players build up their decks with the goal of defeating as many Nemeses as possible. It is a follow-up to the original Cartoon Network Crossover Crisis Deck-Building Game, adding more characters and features, such as the new keyword “Wonder.” Though standalone, the game can be combined with the first one for an even bigger experience.

 

“It’s been a real treat to work with both some of the hottest properties of today and some of the classic shows that older fans—like myself—hold near and dear to their hearts,” said Cryptozoic’s Matt Dunn, Lead Designer of the game. “The game serves as a wonderful entry point for those looking to dip their toes into the world of tabletop gaming, while still offering new and exciting twists for seasoned veterans of the genre.”

The game adds an element of surprise with cards that have the new keyword “Wonder,” which lets a player play the top card of the main deck, then add it to the the Line-Up of cards at the center of play. If a player likes the effect, he or she can buy the card from the Line-Up right away. Since this is a deck-building game, the more cards a player has to choose from, the better.

Cartoon Network Crossover Crisis: Animation Annihilation Deck-Building Game will be available at retailers nationwide November 15 for a suggested retail price of $25.

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
