Even though playing games is typically how Rick and Morty end up putting the multiverse in jeopardy, the dimension-hopping duo are about to embark upon the journey of their lives with the help of a tabletop classic.

At some point in every comic book superhero's life, they find themselves contemplating the nature of their existence and asking themselves, "What's the point of all this? Why guard the galaxy?
