The Realm of Kings Comes to the Legendary: Marvel Deck Building Game

Legendary: Marvel Deck Building Game Realm of Kings

Upper Deck has released Realm of Kings, the latest expansion for the Legendary: Marvel Deck Building Game.

The Inhumans are a mysterious, powerful race living in the hidden city of Attilan, on Earth’s moon. Strongest of all the Inhumans are the Royal Family led by King Blackagar Boltagon.

Long misunderstood the Inhumans have been treated like a failed experiment and rejected as dangerous monsters. For them, the danger lies everywhere! Not only on the cosmic battlefields of space but it also lurks within the palace walls. While space fleets battle for the destiny of empires, Black Bolt’s brother Maximus schemes a betrayal to seize the throne. In Realm of Kings, players command the unearthly powers of the Inhuman Royal Family and fend off mutinous family members and cosmic conquerors. The challengers are many, and without mercy.

Though armed with new keywords and powerful heroes, this expansion also brings with it powerful threats, from Masterminds both within the royal family and without. Whether you encounter the Terrigen Mist or not, embrace your inherent potentials as you wield the magnificent and multifarious powers of the Inhumans against all comers.

The expansion features 100 playable cards, 5 heroes, 2 new masterminds and villain groups, and a rule sheet. A copy of Legendary: Marvel Deck Building Game is required to play.

DC Deck-Building Game: Crisis Expansion Pack 4 Gets a Limited Release at Gen Con and Full Release August 8

Cryptozoic Entertainment and Warner Bros. Consumer Products, on behalf of DC Entertainment, have announced the limited release of DC Deck-Building Game: Crisis Expansion Pack 4 at Gen ConAugust 2-5, followed by a full retail release on August 8. The expansion can be added to any game in the popular DC Deck-Building Game series to introduce cooperative play, Unity cards that can combine for powerful effects, and Personal Crisis cards that directly affect the owner of the card.

In the expansion, the keyword “Unity” is found on several Ongoing cards. When a Unity card is played, the player gains the benefit of that card, as well as well the benefits of any other Unity cards that are already in play. Therefore, gameplay rewards teamwork, as players can take advantage of each other’s Unity cards.

The set’s Personal Crisis cards cause Ongoing detrimental effects that impact individual members of the team, frequently hampering them in some way. Despite being targeted at one player, Personal Crises can end up taking down the whole team by depleting the main deck. The other players can help a player overcome a Personal Crisis, underlining again that teamwork is the key to victory.

Though the game works with any DC Deck-Building Game base set, it is optimized to work with DC Deck-Building Game: Teen Titans. It features Crisis versions of eight DC Teen Titans Super Heroes and comes with six DC Super Hero cards based on the Titans, original members of the Teen Titans who are all grown up: Arsenal, Donna Troy, Nightwing, Omen, Tempest, and The Flash.

The expansion includes 14 Oversized DC Super Heroes, 9 Impossible DC Super-Villains, 4 Crisis-Only DC Super-Villains, 12 Personal Crisis Cards, 32 Main Deck Cards and a rulebook. The expansion requires a copy of DC Deck-Building Game or one of its standalone expansions: Heroes UniteForever Evil, or Teen Titans.

Teen Titans Go! Deck-Building Game is Out November 29

Cryptozoic Entertainment has announced the November 29 release of Teen Titans Go! Deck-Building Game. In this two-player game based on the popular TV show Teen Titans Go!, each player becomes a member of the team—Robin, Starfire, Cyborg, Beast Boy, or Raven—and engages in a friendly competition to take down DC Super-Villains such as Blackfire and the H.I.V.E. Five. Each player starts with one DC Super Hero, but is able to recruit “Sidekicks,” other Titans who can help the player. Each DC Super Hero has a Sidekick version on the back with information on how to recruit it.

In the game, players can have multiple Sidekicks, gaining full access to the abilities on their cards. Potential Sidekicks are comprised of all the DC Super Heroes that are not chosen at the start of play. Players can recruit and steal them by playing specific cards, which can create an additional level of conflict as players take Sidekicks away from their competitors.

Teen Titans Go! Deck-Building Game will be available at retailers nationwide November 29 for a suggested retail price of $25. The game utilizes Cryptozoic’s popular Cerberus Engine, meaning it can be combined with other Cerberus deck-building games to expand gameplay.

Clank! In! Space! Available at Gen Con!

Renegade Game Studios and Dire Wolf Digital are proud to announce that fans of Clank! A Deck-Building Adventure will soon have a whole new stand-alone adventure to explore, Clank! In! Space! This new big box game will offer players a chance to escape an alien starship using the same exciting system developed in the original Clank! A Deck-Building Adventure.

The evil Lord Eradikus has all but conquered the galaxy, and is now on a victory lap across the sector in his flagship, Eradikus Prime. He may rule with an iron grip, but his most prized artifacts are about to slip through his cyborg claws. You and your fellow thieves have challenged each other to sneak aboard his ship, hack your way into its command module, and steal from him.

Along the way, you’ll recruit allies and snatch up extra loot. But one false step and—Clank! Careless noise draws the attention of Lord Eradikus. Hacking into his command module and stealing his artifacts increases his rage. You’d better hope your friends are louder than you are if you want to make it to an escape pod and get out alive…
