The Mr. Meeseeks' Box-O'-Fun Game Recreates All the Stress of the Rick and Morty Episode
Fans of the Adult Swim cartoon Rick and Morty are likely well aware of the Meeseeks Box and the troubles that come with it. ThinkGeek decided to create a game based on the box, which captures all the original stress and repetition from the season one episode, "Meeseeks and Destroy."
As a quick refresher, the Meeseeks Box was a gift from Rick to the Smith family. When the button on top was pushed, a blue figure emerged to help solve any problem the user was having. When the task was completed, the Mr. Meeseeks ceased to exist. The trouble only starts when the user fails to complete their goal. As the Mr. Meeseeks explains, "We are created to serve a singular purpose for which we will go to any lengths to fulfill! Existence is pain to a Meeseeks, Jerry!"
In the Rick and Morty Mr. Meeseeks’ Box-O’-Fun, the game follows a similar narrative. To begin, the player pulls a card with a specific task on it. The player then rolls the dice and tries to get a number that matches the number on the card. If they fail, they must press the button and summon a Mr. Meeseeks. Each blue character can either help with the task or make it even harder to complete. Players can keep drawing cards until the request is complete or opt to complete a dare.
The set comes with 24 dice, 35 request cards, 60 dare cards, 50 Mr. Meeseeks cards, a timer, and a button voiced by Justin Roiland. You can order the game at ThinkGeek for $40.
