Well, this game’s name is at least a bit shorter than what Cryptozoic has been putting out lately.

Cryptozoic Announces DC Deck-Building Game: Confrontations

Comic books are filled with confrontations. I mean, it wouldn’t be all that interesting if Superman just went to work as Clark Kent, had a standard day where nothing happened, and then went home at night. Not really thrilling. So you’ve got supervillains and even rogue superheroes and all other sorts of things going on. If you want to play some of those out on your tabletop, especially as a group effort, you can check out the new expansion for the DC Deck-Building Game. It’s called, appropriately enough, Confrontations. It’s due out in just under 2 weeks.

Cryptozoic Announces Multiverse Box For DC Deck-Building Game

Game storage is something we all have fought with at some point, I’m sure. This can particularly be troublesome with games that have lots of expansions. You want to have all the parts together, but the original box the game came in might not really be able to hold everything. So you are forced to figure out your own solution. In the case of the DC Deck-Building Game, however, Cryptozoic is helping you out with the Multiverse Box. Though it’s more than just a big box to place your cards and expansions, it has its own expansion cards, as well as rules for using all your previous sets together in one.

WizKids Previews Elseworlds Batman For HeroClix

So, the previous Batman preview garnered some discussion, mostly about physique. Not sure this one will have as much of that, but still, it might.

WizKids Previews Green Arrow For HeroClix

It has been a very long time (since high school gym class) since I’ve shot a bow and arrow. At the time, we used two hands. Well, some people don’t have two hands, so they have to improvise.

Venom Hulk will be getting a mini in the new set for HeroClix, and you can get a look at it here.

USAopoly Announces Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 – Gear Up and Rock Out! Card Game

You know, I really should get around to seeing Guardians of the Galaxy 2… And for that matter, I should get around to seeing Guardians of the Galaxy 1. Ok, so I’m not exactly up-to-date on my movies.
