Gen Con 2019: Cryptozoic and Hobby World Announce a Spyfall: Time Travel Limited Release

Spyfall: Time Travel

Cryptozoic Entertainment and Hobby World have announced the limited release of Spyfall: Time Travel at Gen Con, August 1-4, followed by a full retail release in September. Fans who purchase the game at Cryptozoic’s Booth #503 at Gen Con, the annual tabletop convention in Indianapolis, will receive the exclusive Dracula’s Castle Location Deck, while supplies last.

In this latest social deduction card game in the popular Spyfall series, 2-8 players take on roles in memorable locations from history, as well as some futuristic locations. The twist is that one of the players is secretly a spy and does not know the location. In the intense timed rounds, the non-spy players ask questions and give answers to deduce which one of them is the spy without giving away the location, while the spy player tries to figure out the location before his or her identity is revealed. The locations include the Colosseum, the French Revolution, Leonardo’s Studio, and a Lunar Base, among many others across time.

The game is played over an agreed-upon number of rounds with the winner being the player who scores the most points. Each time the spy wins, that player earns points, and can score bonus points for stopping the game to guess the location correctly or convincing other players to accuse someone else of being the spy. When the non-spies win, each of those players earns a point, with an additional point given to any player who initiates the accusation of the spy.

The game features 2- and 3-player variants, as well as a team variant for 7 or more players, adding even more ways to play. It is fully compatible with previous games in the Spyfall series.

Spyfall: Time Travel will be sold in limited prerelease quantities at Gen Con, August 1-4, and will subsequently be available at retailers across the U.S. in September for a retail price of $25.

The game is for 2-8 players age 13+ with playtime listed at 15 minutes. The game is designed by Alexander Ushan, developed by Petr Tyulenev, and art by Sergey Dulin, Anton Kvasovarov, and uildrim. Contents feature 240 Location cards, 30 resealable bags, and 1 rulebook.

DC Spyfall Debuts at Gen Con Follow By a Retail Release a Week Later

Cryptozoic Entertainment and Warner Bros. Consumer Products, on behalf of DC Entertainment, have announced the limited release of DC Spyfall at Gen ConAugust 2-5, followed by a full retail release on August 8.

In this new iteration of the social deduction game Spyfall, 3-8 players take on the roles of DC’s greatest Super Heroes as they have a secret meeting at an iconic location, such as the Batcave, Daily Planet, or the Fortress of Solitude. The twist is that one of them is secretly The Joker in disguise. In the intense 8-minute rounds, the non-Joker players ask questions and give answers to deduce which one of them is the Clown Prince of Crime without giving away the location, while The Joker player tries to figure out the location before his or her identity is revealed.

DC Spyfall features four modules that add even more variety to the classic Spyfall gameplay. The Powered-Up Module gives each player an Ability card that can provide a One-Shot ability or give that player a restriction. When playing with the Harley Quinn Helper Module, one player is secretly Harley Quinn and tries to help The Joker player win without knowing that player’s identity or revealing his or her own identity

Creating even more zany gameplay are the last two modules. The Joker’s Jest Module introduces an all-Joker deck that can result in everyone playing as The Joker. The player who stops play and correctly recognizes that everyone has Joker cards is the winner. Finally, the Multiverse Madness Module gives most or all of the players different Location cards. It is up to a player to recognize this and get a majority of the others to agree with him or her.

DC Spyfall will be available in limited quantities at Cryptozoic’s Booth #601 at Gen Con before hitting retailers nationwide August 8 for a suggested retail price of $25. At Gen Con, fans who purchase the game will receive a promo The Swamp Location deck. In addition, anyone who spends $15 at Cryptozoic’s booth will get a free Comic Book Convention Location deck.

The game is for 3-8 players ages 13+ and takes between 15 and 45 minutes. Created by Alexander Ushan, additional modules were designed by Matt Hyra and Dekan Wheeler with art by Rob Mommaerts.

The game includes 196 cards including: 1 Ability Deck (12 Cards), 2 Multiverse Decks (8 Cards Each), 1 The Joker Deck (8 Cards), and 20 Standard Location Decks (8 Cards Each). Also included are 24 resealable bags and a mission briefing booklet.
