Press release from: Small Monsters Games

Small Monsters Games will be demoing their casual card games: Captain Action, Takeout: The Card Game, and more at the Atomic Toybox Entertainment booth # 3921 as part of the rollout of the exclusive Captain Action Card Game redesign. The new packaging by Kerry Callen, creator of Halo and Sprocket and contributor to Mad magazine, will debut at this year’s SDCC. Atomic Toybox is offering 75 signed decks as a show exclusive. Small Monsters Games titles will be on sale at the Atomic Toybox Entertainment booth (#3921) throughout the weekend with interactive demos of the games.

Small Monsters Games developed and released the Captain Action Card Game in partnership with Captain Action Enterprises in 2016. In homage to the original 1967 Captain Action card game, Small Monsters’ redesign also features a three-in-one system, providing three different games from one deck. Unlike the first card game, though, the anniversary redesign has staggered difficulty levels, so even the littlest Captain Action fans can enjoy a game.

In addition to the signed Captain Action packs, Small Monsters games will also have an SDCC exclusive Takeout expansion card. Takeout is a social set-building card game for 2-4 players, where players take on the role of travelers trying to order Chinese food. The object of the game is to get one dish of each flavor (sweet, sour, salty, spicy and bitter) and a cold drink into your meal, before any of your friends do. Use your superior chopstick skills or a Mandarin-English phrasebook to attack your friends. The 2019 SDCC expansion card adds an exciting new dish to the Takeout menu. Copies of Takeout will be available from Atomic Toybox Entertainment during the convention.

Small Monsters Games will also be part of the Captain Action panel on Thursday, July 18th from 4:00 pm to 5:00pm in Room 32AB. Harold Sipe and Meg Stivison will be discussing the development of the Captain Action game and the recent art update to the deck, as well as helping to judge the fifth annual Fan Art Contest event that invites fans to submit fan artwork of Captain Action, including photos of any of the Captain Action figures from the character’s fifty-year history.
