DC Deck-Building Game: Rivals — Green Lantern vs. Sinestro, Out Soon!

Cryptozoic Entertainment and Warner Bros. Consumer Products have announced the October 31 release of DC Deck-Building Game: Rivals — Green Lantern vs. Sinestro. In this deck-building game that utilizes Cryptozoic’s popular Cerberus Engine, two players become iconic DC rivals Green Lantern and Sinestro and engage in direct Confrontations. As the game progresses, players buy more powerful cards and attack and defend until their opponent’s three oversized Character cards are defeated.

In the game, a player can either take a Normal Turn, buying cards to build up his or her deck, or a Confrontation Turn, challenging his or her opponent directly. During a Confrontation, a player must have Power equal or exceeding his or her opponent’s current oversized Character to defeat it. Green Lantern and Sinestro each have three unique Character cards, each with more formidable abilities and a higher cost than the previous one.

The winner is the player who defeats his or her opponent’s final Character card first or, if they are unable to refill the Line-Up at any point, the player who has the most Victory Points.

The game is fully compatible with the other games in the Confrontations line: DC Deck-Building Game: Confrontations and DC Deck-Building Game: Rivals — Batman vs. The Joker. It can also be combined with other Cerberus Engine deck-building games to create a custom game experience.

Designed by Nathaniel Yamaguchi, the game is for two players ages 15 and up and should take about 30 minutes. The set includes 98 game cards including; 60 main deck cards, 14 punch starter cards, 6 vulnerability starter cards, 8 hard-light construct cards, 10 weakness cards, 6 oversized DC character cards, and a rulebook.

DC Deck-Building Game: Rivals — Green Lantern vs. Sinestrowill be available at retailers nationwide starting October 31 for a suggested retail price of $20.

To coincide with the game’s release, Cryptozoic will also make available DC Deck-Building Game: 2018 Organized Play Kit 2, which includes instructions for stores to run tournaments for this and other games in the DC Deck-Building Game series. It includes a limited-edition Playmat, 12 Gypsy Hero Promo Cards, and a Gypsy poster. Retailers can order it from their distributors.

New Expansion to Clank! A Deck Building Adventure announced: Clank! The Mummy’s Curse!

Renegade Game Studios and Dire Wolf Digital have announced that Clank! A Deck-Building Adventure fans will soon have a new expansion to add to their collection! Clank! The Mummy’s Curse, releasing in March, explores a new pyramid themed board with new monsters and challenges to face in the tombs.

Untold riches await you inside the pyramids of the Ancients – but they are well protected. An undying Mummy guardian spreads a vile curse to those who would rob its tomb. And, inevitably, the treasure has attracted a dragon. Can you escape the fearsome Croxobek?

Clank! A Deck-Building Adventure has been extremely successful since its premiere at Gen Con in 2016. Designed by and co-published with Dire Wolf Digital, Clank! expanded in March 2017 with Clank! Sunken Treasures. Now Clank! The Mummy’s Curse further expands the fun, adding a wandering mummy to avoid, and new artifacts to acquire in the depths of the pyramid!

Clank! The Mummy’s Curse will be available this Spring at friendly local game stores everywhere. This expansion to Clank! A Deck-Building Adventure is ideal for 2-4 adventurers that are at least 12 years old. We expect that it will take most treasure hunters about 30-60 minutes to escape, if they are quick, quiet, and lucky!

DC Deck-Building Game: Confrontations is Out November 29

Cryptozoic Entertainment have announced the November 29 release of DC Deck-Building Game: Confrontations. In the 2-4 player team vs. team game, each player selects a DC Super Hero (Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, or Zatanna) or DC Super-Villain (Lex Luthor, Circe, Ocean Master, or Felix Faust) and joins another player on his or her team for a clash against two opponents. The game uses Cryptozoic’s popular Cerberus Engine, which has players build up their decks with the goal of defeating one of their opponents. The new keyword “Assist” on many cards allows a player to lend some help to his or her teammate. Though standalone, the game can be combined with any of the variations of the DC Deck-Building Game to create an even larger experience.

The game is best played 2v2 but there’s also 2 and 3 player variant rules.

In the game, each player’s DC Super Hero or DC Super-Villain has three unique versions—when one is knocked down by the opposing team, the player replaces it with the next one, which has boosted abilities and is even more difficult to take down. In order to defeat their opponents, players have to work together, taking advantage of cards with the keyword “Assist,” which allows a card to be played during a teammate’s turn and gives that teammate all the benefits.

DC Deck-Building Game: Confrontations will be available at retailers nationwide November 29 for a suggested retail price of $40.
