DC Deck-Building Game Expansion Pack 2 is a Crisis

DC Deck-Building Game Expansion Pack 2Cryptozoic is adding a new expansion to their fun DC Deck-Building Game. The Crisis Expansion Pack 2 includes six new Super Heroes and main deck cards. The expansion also includes “Impossible Mode” Super-villains, and the eight Super Heroes and 12 Super-Villains from Heroes United have been revamped for cooperative play. That’s the same formula Cryptozoic followed for their first expansion which introduced cooperative play, and included new version of heroes and villains previously seen.

In the first expansion you had to beat various events based on some of the iconic moments in DC Comics history as well as defeat villains like you regularly do in the game. It changes up the main game enough and expands the already impressive replay value of the game.

Since it is an expansion, it requires the DC Comics Deck-Building Game, Heroes Unite, or Forever Evil base games to play.

The release includes 61 game cards, 14 oversized Super Hero Cards, and rules. MRP is $20.00.

The expansion will be released in February.

Stop the presses! Stories are coming in from around the world, but you have a limited amount of money, a few reporters, and a race against all the other newspapers to get your publication out first!

Stories require writing and photos, but advertising, headlines, interviews and features will all help boost your attention and your reputation!

Players place their reporters to claim stories, fit their stories into their paper’s layout, and get money from advertising or extra stories. Other reporters can bump yours if they have more money, so keeping a few dollars around will be helpful. Your newspaper has a specialty, so stories that match your readership will earn you more points. If you’re the first to press, you’ll score more points, but the best stories and the most complete newspaper will be the winner!
