Cryptozoic and Hobby World Announce Release of Spyfall: Time Travel

Latest Social Deduction Card Game in Popular Series Features Locations from the Past and Future and Will First Be Available at Gen Con at Cryptozoic’s Booth #503

Lake Forest, CA – July 26, 2019 – Cryptozoic Entertainment, leading creator of tabletop games, trading cards, and physical and digital collectibles, and Hobby World, leading Russian publisher of tabletop games, announced the limited release of Spyfall: Time Travel at Gen Con, August 1-4, followed by a full retail release in September. Fans who purchase the game at Cryptozoic’s Booth #503 at Gen Con, the annual tabletop convention in Indianapolis, will receive the exclusive Dracula’s Castle Location Deck, while supplies last.

In this latest social deduction card game in the popular Spyfall series, 2-8 players take on roles in memorable locations from history, as well as some futuristic locations. The twist is that one of the players is secretly a spy and does not know the location. In the intense timed rounds, the non-spy players ask questions and give answers to deduce which one of them is the spy without giving away the location, while the spy player tries to figure out the location before his or her identity is revealed. The locations include the Colosseum, the French Revolution, Leonardo’s Studio, and a Lunar Base, among many others across time.

Spyfall: Time Travel

“In Spyfall: Time Travel, you don’t just have to think about where a location is, but when in time it is, adding a whole new level of complexity and fun!” said Dekan Wheeler, Games Production Manager at Cryptozoic. “As with all Spyfall games, you have to come up with questions and answers that help you figure out the location or the identity of the spy, while being careful not to give away too much to the other players. It can be a tough balance, but that’s part of what makes it the perfect party game.”

The game is played over an agreed-upon number of rounds with the winner being the player who scores the most points. Each time the spy wins, that player earns points, and can score bonus points for stopping the game to guess the location correctly or convincing other players to accuse someone else of being the spy. When the non-spies win, each of those players earns a point, with an additional point given to any player who initiates the accusation of the spy.

The game features 2- and 3-player variants, as well as a team variant for 7 or more players, adding even more ways to play. It is fully compatible with previous games in the Spyfall series.

Spyfall: Time Travel will be sold in limited prerelease quantities at Gen Con, August 1-4, and will subsequently be available at retailers across the U.S. in September for a retail price of $25.
