The Ricks Must Be Crazy Multiverse Game
Product DescriptionTake on the roles of Rick, Morty, Zeep, and Kyle and introduce wondrous Power-making technology to the worlds you've created. and then steal most of it for yourself. That is, if your opponents don't get to it first! This is an engine-building game (of sorts) that takes place in the four locations ("`Verses," we call them) from the popular episode "The Ricks Must Be Crazy": the Rick verse, Microverse, Miniverse, and Teenyverse. Due to time dilation and other pseudo-scientific malarkey, the lower you travel in the `Verses, the greater number of Actions you'll have each round. But some of those lower `Verses are a bit primitive, so the Contraptions you build to use all that sweet Power might not work so well! During your turn, you'll spend your Actions to build Power Supplies and Contraptions and even move to a new `Verse to take advantage of some excess Power there. At the end of each round, the Power generates from the bottom 'Verse up, and players can use that Power as it travels from `Verse to `Verse to play One-Shot abilities, use Character Abilities, and power-up their Contraptions. Player order matters in each `Verse, so hopefully your opponents left you some Power to use!.
- Engine-building and Multiverse-exploiting as only Rick and morty could do it
- Competitive game with variable player abilities
- Easy to learn
- 30 to 45 minute playing time
- 2 to 4 player game
Top ReviewsA fun, complex group game

I've played a lot of board games and card games, a favorite is Cards Against Humanity in our house. After 15 minutes of play I feel this game will be another favorite. It's simple enough to learn in 10 minutes yet complex enough to keep advanced players on their toes. I was surprised at the complexity of the rules, to be honest, and the fact there are 2 versions (standard and advanced) allows you to tailor the experience depending on the players. Also it is very small so it's easy to take with you. Worthwhile repurchase if you like board/card games, even if you don't like Rick & Morty. Recommended.

It's an inexpensive $10ish game that delivers a lot of fun. I bought this because I like the show and figured it will probably be decent enough of a game, but my group of friends ended up playing for hours and ignored our pile of games. There's some rules that we're a bit vague but overall it's easy enough to play. Game keeps moving so there's not lull times where you're bored waiting for your turn. Since the cards can change a lot of the board then the gameplay isn't also predictable. Once you play in the harder mode, you'll see this is a bit stacked to where parasites seem to always win.
A great game, sorely lacking in TINY RICK!!!

Really surprised at this one. Bought it on a lark, as my weekly board game night group is all fans of Rick & Morty. We figured this'd be a fun silly game to break out once in a while. Turns out, it is a surprisingly well done game with good mechanics, and it's become one of our favorite warm-up or cool-down games. It's a fun combination of guesswork, secret roles, and memory, as you try to suss out who among the wacky characters are real, and who are parasites. If you clear out all of the parasites, you win! If you kill four real characters, you all lose. In the basic version, you're all hoping to win by the rules, but if you play the advanced version, you could be a parasite yourself! If you are, then you're playing against everyone else! If four real characters are killed, everyone else loses, but you win! All in all, it's a quick, fun, clever little game that I think most gaming groups will enjoy a few quick rounds of, or to break out at parties. Wubba-lubba-dub-dub!
I am super stoked with this purchase!!!

Everybody loved it! It's not like any other board game I've ever played. The references to the episode of the same name are fantastic and the game play is fun. There are two different play styles described in the instructions, but cooperative is the most fun the first few times you play. I am super stoked with this purchase!!! The box is smaller than I thought it would be, but it's a card game so that makes sense.

The show is wonderful, and the character cards are all pretty amusing

I might be biased because we've been playing some really top-rated tabletop games lately, but this one fits firmly in the "just okay" category for me. The show is wonderful, and the character cards are all pretty amusing, but the game just isn't very engaging. The shuffling mechanic (swapping cards, possibly changing parasites to real) honestly just slows things down, and often, you'll be swapping two cards that you already know are identical (both parasites, etc).
If you're a fan of the show, it's good for a couple of plays, but its probably not going to be a game-shelf staple.
A Great Game With Great References

I love this game as a Rick and Morty fan, but even my friends who don't watch the show still have fun playing. I originally played a friend's copy of the game and they told me that it wasn't the easiest to learn. They also told me how poorly the manual describes the directions. Now that I have my own copy I can agree, it could do a much better job of explaining the rules, but it's not too hard. Once the players understand the basics, the game flies by pretty fast. I can't speak to the advanced rules as I haven't tried them out yet.
Overall it's a fun game with some clever mechanics. My only gripe, and it's a small one, is that they reuse a lot of the main characters for different cards. Considering it's a game based on a single TV show, I can understand that it must have been difficult to fill out the roster sometimes. It's by no means a deal breaker, but something I wish was a little better. I'd easily recommend this game, just don't give up if your friends complain about the rules at first, it's worth it to stick with it.
A win in this house

My 15yr old son loves Rick & Morty (not going to lie my husband & I watch it as well haha). We are a board game family & decided to get this game; so glad we got it! It was simple to learn, fun to play, & definitely had us all cracking up!!! I look forward to more Rick & Morty games!
A good game with witty references to the show

I got my regular gaming group together and we downloaded the rules off the Cryptozoic website so we would be familiar with the mechanics before the game arrived. It took a little getting used to the rules of the game, but by the 3rd round we had picked it up and were slaughtering parasites. It's a little simplistic, and there is an odd mechanic of shuffling identities so characters can go from real to parasite and vice versa, but overall we had fun. We were all familiar with the episode and the flavor text and special rules for certain characters like Pencilvester add a nice touch. The real fun is in the advanced play rules where it's everyone for themselves. The games are short, which is nice. It'd be a good game to play a few rounds between other games. After a few plays, we were ready for something else. It's well worth the small investment.
This game is super fun!

My bias will become obvious, because I am a Rick & Morty fanboy.
That said, even if this game were themed around the Golden Girls, it would still be great.
From the get-go though, if you have seen the Total Rickall episode of Rick and Morty, you will recognize everything in this game. The play is fun, and can be done quickly, It's fun to play with 2 people.
You are not competing with each other in this game, which makes it SO fun. You are actively rooting for the other people at the table, in this, I think, it sets the game apart from others.
It combines a need for Memory (trust me if you forget, and Pencilvester is real, you will cry), the need for strategy and coordination with your teammates.
It is possible to play while inebriated, which adds a fun twist.
All in all, this is a super fun game, with lovable characters, fun gameplay and tense moments.
The ONLY downside that I noticed, the initial layout instructions are lacking. Once I figured out the instructions, it made a ton more sense, but it took a bit of doing to figure out the gameplay. Check for a video online or something, you may need a bit more instructions (as I did). Maybe get a Meeseeks to explain it.
But seriously, at this price, buy this game, play this game, love this game.
Decent deduction game for Rick and Morty fans.

I bought this closer to when it came out and back then I don't think it was worth the money but with the price drop its a decent deduction game for the money.
If your group is all Rick and Morty fans this is a fun a little game with 2 modes of play (standard and advanced) that closely matches the parasite episode from the show. If you are playing with people that aren't fans of the show, I would probably pick up a different game like Ultimate Werewolf.
The standard mode is an alright co-op deduction game that is really only for teaching the rules in my opinion. It's pretty hard to lose even with people shooting blindly. I would imagine it would be a good game for kids but given the theme I doubt very many people are playing this with their kids.
The advanced mode should really be called the standard and is much more fun. Some of the rules are kind of weird within it but overall it follows the episode much more closely than standard.
Overall for $10 I would say its a great pickup for a small group deduction game. It's hard to find good ones for smaller groups and this one does the job for me.
