One of the surprise hit comics of this past year was the “Rick and Morty” Dungeons & Dragons crossover from IDW. Seriously- it was the hot funny papers title that some shops couldn’t keep on the shelves. Who knew?
Anyhow- Wizards of the Coast and Adult Swim figured “WHY STOP AT COMICS?”, and have made their tabletop roleplaying adventure game available today via Amazon. And it’s on sale!
Play D&D through the lenses of the mad narcissistic genius, Rick Sanchez, from the animated Cartoon Network series, Rick and Morty—the Rick Way!
This tabletop roleplaying game boxed set blends the world of Dungeons & Dragons with mad narcissistic genius, Rick Sanchez’s power gaming sensibilities, nostalgia, sarcastic metacommentary, and the reasons why people play D&D in the first place.
• Following the hugely popular comic book series Rick and Morty vs. Dungeons & Dragons, this boxed set is co-authored by Jim Zub (co-writer of comic book series) with new art by Troy Little (illustrator of comic book series).
• This complete campaign experience includes the following components: (1) 64-page rulebook annotated by Rick (2) 32-page original adventure for levels 1–3 (3) 4-panel folding Dungeon Master screen featuring new art (4) 5 ready-to-play character sheets (6) 11 dice
• A great companion to the comic book series, and a perfect gift for the Rick and Morty/D&D fan in your life.
The game is expected to start shipping on November 19th 2019.
There is also this companion book for the game, available exclusively at GameStop.
In one of the biggest comic book crossovers ever, Morty goes to Rick for help to learn about Dungeons & Dragons, the game all the cool kids at his school are playing; naturally, things go horribly wrong as Rick, Morty, and the whole Smith family find themselves on an epic quest with no escape in sight.
“Rick and Morty” will return to Adult Swim for a 70-episode 4th season, pushing the animated series well over the 100 episode mark. No date for the return is known yet, but you can pick up seasons 1-3 here.
