Cryptozoic Entertainment and DC Comics have launched the Kickstarter campaign for Batman: The Dark Knight Returns – The Game.
Crafted by acclaimed game designers Morgan Dontanville and Daryl Andrews to be accessible to hardcore and casual gamers alike, your skills will be tested across four missions, each featuring their own unique rules, allies, abilities, and epic boss battles. With variable set-up and endless combinations of Fight and Detective cards, each playthrough will throw unique resources and challenges at you.
The Dark Knight Returns is likely the most beloved Batman story ever told. Writer/artist Frank Miller’s four-issue series from 1986 was a watershed moment in comics, as it brought a dark and cinematic feel to the medium. Every Batman story since then owes something to it.
Batman: The Dark Knight Returns – The Game is for ages 14 and up and will be offered in Base Game and Deluxe Edition formats, with the Deluxe Edition featuring 17+ miniature figures and coming in a slick Kickstarter-exclusive slipcase that will look incredible on your bookshelf next to your premium board games and special edition books!
The base game costs $60 while the deluxe edition is $99. The campaign runs until March 19 at 5pm ET.
Mayfair Games has announced that the Steam Map Expansion 5: Boxcar will be released in April 2016.
Steam’s latest expansion delivers a way to store your precious cargo in one place. The box comes with 2 maps in its hold – India (3-5 players) and South Eastern US (2-6 players). In addition, it comes packed with a variety of mini-expansions that can be played with your other Steam maps. New Action Tiles can be added to your games to change the dynamic of previous maps – The Surveyor, The Midnight Express, The Local Payoff, & Corporate Charity. The Gray Market Goods expansion adds a level of mystery to your goods supply and creates dual goods.
We’ve also included the previous mini-expansions that were only found as promos: Demanding Suppliers, City Growth Special Contractors, and the Five Way Town. In addition to all this, we’ve added more track tiles and have created new complex hard curve tracks.
With all this new content, we’ve also included a Universal Display board to be placed beside your expansion maps rather than having to play your expansion on top of the original board.
The box is designed to hold all your Steam Expansions, and with it we’ve created an updated omnibus of all the previous expansions’ rules with more in-depth examples. All in all this is the perfect way to keep track of all your goods.
