ALL PRE-ORDER COPIES OF THE GAME TO INCLUDE EXCLUSIVE CHEW #1 VARIANT COMIC
Today, IDW Games announced the official release date for the first in a series of CHEW tabletop games. CHEW: Cases of the FDA will be available in May of 2015. This fast-paced, high-laughs card game features art by Rob Guillory, including a brand-new box cover, as well as text by CHEW creator and writer, John Layman. IDW Games tapped designer Kevin Wilson (Descent, X-Files, Arkham Horror) to create an appropriately over-the-top card game worthy of the CHEW name.
Based on the Eisner Award-winning comic series, CHEW: Cases of the FDA card game seats 2-5 players and is playable in about 30 minutes. Players compete to close cases pulled directly from the pages of the ongoing comic book. They’ll enlist partners like John Colby, Amelia Minz, and even Buttercup the lion, while simultaneously sending fiendish villains and cultists out to sabotage their rivals’ investigations. As an added bonus, all pre-ordered copies of the game will include an exclusive variant edition of CHEW #1 featuring Guillory’s homage to Dogs Playing Poker packaging artwork, as well as 20 pink CHOG plastic minis that will change color in future printings.
Head to your Friendly Local Game Store to pre-order CHEW: Cases of the FDA and while you wait for the game to finish baking to perfection, visit the IDW Games website, “like” us on facebook, and follow @idwgames on twitter for more bite-sized teasers.
Tony Chu is a cop with a secret. A weird secret. Tony Chu is Cibopathic, which means he gets psychic impressions from whatever he eats. It also means he's a hell of a detective, as long as he doesn't mind nibbling on the corpse of a murder victim to figure out whodunit, and why. It`s a dirty job, and Tony has to eat terrible things in the name of justice. And if that wasn`t bad enough, the government has figured out Tony Chu`s secret. They have plans for him… whether he likes it or not. Presenting the Harvey award and multiple Eisner award winning, New York Times Best Selling series about cops, crooks, cooks, cannibals and clairvoyants, written by JOHN LAYMAN (Detective Comics, Marvel Zombies vs. Army of Darkness, Marvel Identity Wars annuals and PUFFED) with mind-blowing art by ROB GUILLORY.
