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.

Cryptozoic and Igrology Team Up for Cult: Choose Your God Wisely

Cryptozoic Entertainment and Igrology are currently running a Kickstarter campaign for Cult: Choose Your God Wisely. Designed by Konstantin Seleznev, with art by Anton Kvasovarov, the board game allows 2-5 players to send their Priests to Locations in the Eternal City as they battle to bring their deity victory over the minds and souls of humanity. The initial funding goal for the campaign is $20,000, with several stretch goals planned if that amount is reached. It’s currently $8,000 short with 13 days to go.

In Cult: Choose Your God Wisely, each player chooses a God for their Cult to follow, with this deity having special abilities that can aid him or her. Gameplay consists of two phases. In the Intention Phase, players place their free Priests onto Locations on the board, with more Locations becoming available as a Cult gains Followers. During the Resolution Phase, a winner is determined in each Location based on the Influence of the players’ Priests, with Miracle and Intrigue Cards capable of changing the outcome of each conflict dramatically. The player who wins a Location is able to use its unique benefits, while the other present players receive alms for their cause in the form of coins.

A player can win the game in a variety of ways: building five Altars, controlling four Fanatical Mobs, or performing the Summoning of his or her God twice. The game is for 2-5 players ages 12+. A game plays in 90 minutes.

The game comes with the game board, 75 Priest Tokens, 5 Patriarchs, 45 Followers Tokens, 30 Miracle Cards, 30 Intrigue Cards, 30 License Cards, 1 Supremacy Card, 8 Cult Sheets, 16 Fanatical Mob Tokens, and 100 Coin Tokens.

You can get a single copy of the deluxe version of the game available for a $50 pledge.
