A movie sequel to Space Jam – Space Jam 2 is currently in development at Warner Bros. and will be released in cinemas in 2019.

Rick and Morty Tabletop Games

Board games and trading cards company – Cryptozoic Entertainment have announced that they are working with Cartoon Network Enterprises to develop two new tabletop games based on two episodes of the popular animated Adult Swim show – Rick and Morty. The two new games are called “Rick and Morty: Anatomy Park Game” and “Rick and Morty: Close Rick-Counters of the Rick Kind Deck-Building Game”. Both games have been previewed at Cryptozoic’s booth at the Toy Fair, Rick and Morty: Anatomy Park Game is due to be released on 12th July 2017 and Rick and Morty: Close Rick-Counters of the Rick Kind Deck-Building Game will be released some time in the fourth quarter of 2017. Production on Rick and Morty Season 3 is now in progress.

Rick and Morty: Anatomy Park Game Description from the Cryptozoic Entertainment Press Release:

Rick and Morty: Anatomy Park Game is based on the first season episode “Anatomy Park,” in which Rick shrinks Morty and sends him into the body of Ruben, a homeless man in a Santa suit. It turns out that, in a joint venture with an eccentric and well-funded amoeba, Rick has built a microscopic amusement park inside a human body that will make them rich beyond their wildest dreams. Morty’s mission is to save the very strange park before it is overrun by the diseases that are running rampant.

The strategy game puts 2-4 players into Anatomy Park, deep inside of Ruben’s body. After choosing from six characters, players must design the best park possible by placing tiles while simultaneously avoiding and fighting Diseases, such as Tuberculosis and Hepatitis A. Certain actions (e.g., moving Ride Tiles around) shift around Ruben’s internal organs during gameplay and cause players to draw Bodily Reaction Cards, which result in unexpected effects and force players to act out embarrassing bodily functions. There are multiple game-ending conditions in which Ruben can live or die, affecting players and their final scores in various ways.

Rick and Morty: Close Rick-Counters of the Rick Kind Deck-Building Game Description from the Cryptozoic Press Release:

Rick and Morty: Close Rick-Counters of the Rick Kind Deck-Building Game is based on the Season 1 episode “Close Rick-Counters of the Rick Kind,” in which a group of Ricks from alternate realities arrive and accuse the show’s Rick of murdering other Ricks. After being taken to the Council of Ricks, Rick and Morty escape to track down the evil Rick who appears to be the one behind the murders and the kidnapping of numerous Mortys. However, the true motivations and identity of the villain turn out to be much more complicated.

The deck-building game uses Cryptozoic’s popular Cerberus Engine as various versions of Rick serve as both players’ oversized Hero cards and the Villainous Council of Ricks. Each player’s deck starts with the following cards: seven Genius Waves cards that give you Power, one Beth, one Jerry, and one Summer. The Beth, Jerry, and Summer cards do nothing, but can activate other cards. The “Kick” stack in other Cerberus games is now the Portal Gun stack. The Portal Gun activates the Portal deck, which transports a player’s Hero to a random Location from the episode or other popular places from the series. That player may then utilize that Location during his or her turn and has the option of paying the cost of the Location to put it into his/her deck.
