Cryptozoic Entertainment: FOOD FIGHT!
Hot and fresh, Food Fight will be available for demo and purchase at the Cryptozoic booth #1749. It’s their first foray into the board game category, and it’s also their first unique IP. Everything you see is cooked to perfection with the flavor of “fans first!” Mascots like the Toast Master General can give your army an edge when it comes to mealtime, but beware the dog. You don’t want your perfectly plated meal to end up kibble.
Gen Con attendees will have the first opportunity to try out the new games releasing from Cryptozoic this fall. Stop by their booth or the demo tables outside of room #139 to try these awesome games!

- THE WALKING DEAD BOARD GAME: In this game, only the strong survive. The weak turn into walkers, and then turn against their former friends! Fight your way through zombie-infested Atlanta with your fellow survivors. Take on the role of Rick, Andrea, or one of the other hapless survivors and scrounge for sweet weapons like a Shotgun or Crossbow. Keep your eyes open for new allies, but watch your back! When supplies start running low, it’s every man for himself.
