The Op Announces their Newest Rising Game, The Batman Who Laughs Rising
Do you hear that laughing? That’s The Batman Who Laughs, the subject of The Op‘s latest “Rising” game, The Batman Who Laughs Rising. Our sister site Board Game Today has the news that DC’s breakout villain is the focus of a new game coming out later this year.
The Batman Who Laughs is a twisted version of Batman from the Dark Multiverse, one where he was infected with Joker Toxin. Yes, it’s the brains and cunning of Batman mixed with the pure anarchy of the Joker!
The multiverse’s disturbing cross between The Caped Crusader and The Joker is the epicenter of conflict in The Op’s newest cooperative card and dice game, in which players work together and recruit key Super Heroes to dominate a host of Super-Villains. In The Batman Who Laughs Rising, a passage from the Dark Multiverse has allowed the most dangerous evildoers to infiltrate Gotham City, and these Dark Knights alongside their menacing leader are eager to do their worst to the city.
Save the multiverse and do battle with Power, Purpose, Determination, and
Justice with four starting heroes: Wonder Woman, Green Lantern,
Hawkgirl, and Batman, each with their own teams and special abilities.
Prominently on the opposition stands a custom sculpted, full color figure of The Batman Who Laughs, crazed and commanding a fistful of chained Evil Robins.
As the demonic leader doles out damage wherever he turns, regain control by empowering Allies such as Harley Quinn, The Flash, and Cyborg, whose
skills can complete objectives or help recover what is lost to darkness. Take out villainous versions of Batman such as The Merciless, The Dawnbreaker, The Murder Machine, and more before facing off with the psychotic Jokerized antagonist himself!
The Batman Who Laughs Rising is the fifth installment of The Op’s cooperative Rising game series of fateful battles, and also features new solo play rules for fans to put an end to the mayhem single-handedly! Made for 1-4 players ages 15 and up, the $49.99 game includes over 200 components and eerie illustrations that will add a uniquely grim visual to your Batman collection this fall
The Batman Who Laughs debuted in DC Comics’ The Casting #1 in September 2017 and created by Greg Capullo and Scott Snyder.
