D&D VS Rick and Morty: The RPG Adventure Reviews

Bravo, Bard: “There is plenty here to please any fan of the show, and does well to highlight what makes the show loved by many. As an introductory product it works well; new players will be able to run this adventure with minimal effort, allowing them to focus on the fun new experience it brings. “

ComicBook.com: “Dungeons & Dragons vs. Rick and Morty is a hoot, and I’d be willing to play again in a heartbeat. Anyone looking to spice things up at the gaming table would do well to seriously consider it.”

Dice Monkey: ” There’s also just a lot of really weird stuff going on there. For myself, I would probably throw one or two of these rooms into a mad scientist dungeon, or use it as a bizarre level of the Dungeon of the Mad Mage.”

Dungeons & Donuts: “It’s a suitably meta and sci-fi twist on a D&D adventure that’s sure to please die-hard fans of the show most of all.”

EN World: “The Rulebook also does an excellent job of explaining how a role-playing game works, better than most. Ignore some of Rick’s ravings about power, and it has solid DMing advice.”

Gamespot: “This set gives you the tools to start playing in a simplified format before you dive into a major campaign–because D&D has a huge learning curve, this is a nice way to dip your feet into the water.”

Gaming Gang: 8/10 “Dungeons & Dragons Vs Rick and Morty will sure to please those who dig the Adult Swim show and are looking to give D&D a try. The included adventure is intersting, if a bit lightweight, and contains plenty of nods to the animated series.”

Geek Dad: ” I think the theme and execution of the Dungeons & Dragons vs Rick and Morty set are exquisite. The set stays true to the themes, humor, and characters of the show, highlighting some of the most meme-worthy moments in the show’s history. While I wouldn’t play this set with kids under 16, I think it’s a roaring good time to play with adults.”

Geek Tyrant: “If you enjoy Rick and Morty and want to try D&D, or you want to try to get your friends into D&D, D&D vs Rick and Morty is a great tool to help with that. Heck, even if you already play and like Rick and Morty, this would be a fantastic dungeon crawl to run and I’m sure you and your friends would never forget.”

Geek Wire: “The Lost Dungeon of Rickedness is an adventure made just like Gygax used to do it, with constant action, harsh punishments for stupidity, rewards for creative problem-solving, and most crucially, no rhyme or reason to it at all.”

IGN: “it’s clear that the team behind this crossover is incredibly invested in striking a great balance between paying homage to and reverently adapting the source material while also making the adventure accessible to new players”

io9: “it was great to take a break from the norm and embrace the silly, stupid fun of Dungeons & Dragons. In the world of Rick and Morty, anything is possible…everything is encouraging.”

The Gamer: “DMs will be easily able to bring out the more bizarre, Rick-infused properties of the dungeon to get genuine laughs and gasps from players. In some ways, the dungeons is designed to prey upon the expectations of veteran adventurers.”

Nerdvana: “In true Rick and Morty fashion, both the rulebook and adventure encourage you to throw out the material presented when convenient or necessary, making it your own in an appropriately subversive Rickth Edition.”

Tribality: “I think it would be a ton of fun to run for players looking for a silly dungeon, especially as a break from a serious campaign. If you are a fan of the show or comic and want to run a Rick & Morty mini-campaign, then this box set is worth the price.”

Rick and Morty VS D&D II #1 Reviews!

Bubble Blabber: 8/10 “an excellent start to what should be another brilliant series…The adventures are only going to get bigger and badder from here.”

But Why Tho?: 10/10 “It captures every ounce of essence from the show. It pays homage in an honest way to the Dnd routes, without sacrificing on the comedic nature of Rick And Morty.”

Caped-Joel: 8.5/10 “Zub really expands on the concept in interesting ways while also taking time to make a lot of clever and funny observations about just how popular Dungeons & Dragons has gotten over the past couple years as a cultural phenomenon.”

Convention Collective: “The art in this book is so darn fun. All the small details in D&D weapons and worlds are lovingly placed and a joy to look at. The environments are so carefully crafted and make it easy to see the panels come to life as you read.”

Do You Even Comic Book?: 9/10 “This book is precisely what it promises to be and has a fun time with the lore of both series that fans of both series can enjoy.”

Fanboy Factor: “It’s a maelstrom of mayhem, foul-mouthed mouthing-off, consumer satirism and just plain Painscape!”

Hero Press: “perfectly captures both the voice of the Rick and Morty show and the essence of freewheeling Dungeons & Dragons fun in this hilarious new chapter in the lives of our crass protagonists.”

Kabooooom: 10/10 “Jim Zub does a fantastic job of depicting gamer humor through the lens of Rick & Morty, with Rick insulting nerds by calling them bard-lovers. Troy Little’s art captures the look of the show well enough, while bringing in some suitably nightmarish creatures straight from the Monster Manual”

Pullbox: 10/10 “This is a perfect team for seemingly perfect project!…A must have for any D&D or Adult Swim fan!”

Villain Media: “Fueled by absurdities and hilarious visual gags, Rick and Morty vs. Dungeons & Dragons: Chapter II: Painscape #1 lands its wisecracks with ease.”
