Batman: The Animated Series Dice Game Now Available

The Batman: The Animated Series show was one of the highest quality cartoon products I feel I’ve seen. It really captured the dark, dense world of Gotham and the inhabitants thereof.

Well, the Batman: The Animated Series Dice Game isn’t quite so dark, but it is just as fun. It’s also available now.
