Cryptozoic Releases Trio of Stephen Rhodes Games

Cryptozoic Entertainment has announced the release of three new games from Stephen Rhodes, a prolific designer who is known for creating board games such as The Big Book of Madness and Kingdom Death.

Cryptozoic has released three new games by Stephen Rhodes. The games are called Guilds of Ravnica, Dominaria, and Ixalan.

22 September 2021 – Cryptozoic Has Released a Stephen Rhodes Trilogy. Let’s Dig for Treasure, Let’s Summon Demons, and Don’t Talk to Strangers are three games based on the work of Steven Rhodes that will be released on September 28 by a prominent producer of tabletop games, trading cards, and collectibles. Rhodes is most recognized for his unconventional reimaginings of 1970s and 1980s children’s activity books. Dynomite Games, an old-school sub-brand of Cryptozoic, created the games, which reflect the games’ hilarious vintage settings.

Each 2-6 person game offers fast-paced, easy-to-learn action with little setup time, as well as hidden depth for dedicated players. The games will be available at Spencer’s and hobby shops worldwide in time for Halloween and the Christmas season, after a successful Kickstarter campaign in late 2020.  

“Seeing how my ideas have been transformed into a bigger universe of their own has been a really fascinating experience,” Steven Rhodes remarked. “Cryptozoic has done an amazing job of capturing the vintage feel and twisted comedy of my artwork to create such a fun and collectable collection of games.”

“We’re big admirers of Steven Rhodes’ work, so creating three games inspired by his dark and funny sensibility was incredible,” said Cryptozoic co-founder Cory Jones. “Our aim with the Dynomite Games brand is to offer hobby gaming principles to casual board game players, in addition to having very beautiful graphics. Although each of these bite-sized games has genuine strategic aspects, the fundamental rules may be taught in about five minutes! They’re all a lot of fun and have something for everyone.”

On September 28, all three games based on Steven Rhodes’ work will be available for $19.99 in shops worldwide.
