Rick and Morty: The Ricks Must Be Crazy Multiverse Game is an engine-building tabletop game designed for two to four players ages 17 and up. Players take on the roles of Rick, Morty, Zeep, and Kyle as they introduce Power Supplies to different worlds, and then try to use the resulting Power to activate Contraptions before their opponents.
Based on the Rick and Morty episode “The Ricks Must Be Crazy,” from season two of the Adult Swim series, gameplay takes place in four Verses with unique attributes: the Rickverse, Microverse, Miniverse, and Teenyverse.
“This is an engine-building game in a way,” says Matt Hyra, the game’s lead designer. “Except that Power Supplies don’t have ownership, so if you can predict where a Power surplus will appear, you can take advantage of it … if your opponents don’t get to it first!” The game was also designed by Cory Jones.
During the Action Phase, players spend Actions to move to different Verses where they can build Power Supplies and Contraptions. Then, during the Power-Up Phase, Power generates from the bottom Verse up, and players utilize it to play One-Shot cards, use Character Abilities, and power their Contraptions. The player who scores the needed Victory Points by building Power Supplies and activating Contraptions will win the game.
Rick and Morty fans can grab this game at major retailers on May 30 for $20.
