A new batch of Batman Miniatures Game/DC Universe Miniatures Game releases are now available from Knight Models.

Midweek Snippets

Quite a blustery day here in Atlanta for the middle of the week. Despite being the first day of spring, it seems as though winter is looking to hang on for a little longer. So, even though there’s more light than there is dark now (at least, here in the Northern Hemisphere), we should still stock up on bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Okumarts Games Releases Four Sets of Super-villain Paper Miniatures, Gravetides Fantasy Fleet Coming to Kickstarter, Afro-Zombie Launching Steam Girls 75mm Minis Kickstarter Soon, Stars Reach 2 Kickstarter Running Now, Dark Art Studios Running Devil’s Dungeon II Kickstarter, Elder Dice: Unspeakable Tomes Up On Kickstarter, and Really Useful Box Storage For Sails of Glory Ships Released.

Capers RPG Up On Kickstarter

Ah, the Roaring 20s. Mobsters, bootleggers, tommy-guns, and super-powered gangsters. What? You don’t remember that? Well, maybe I’m just thinking of Capers, a new RPG that’s up on Kickstarter. Capers isn’t quite your standard superhero RPG. Instead of futuristic cities, you’ll be playing in the rough and tumble times of the 1920s. Grab your flapper dress and best pinstripe suit.

A new set is in the works for HeroClix. For this one, they head to one of the most iconic characters and the school they founded.

Save the Day Advanced Rulebook Now Available

Many of us wish that we were superheroes. Unfortunately, spider bites, gamma radiation, and cell mutations don’t really work that way.

Well, this game’s name is at least a bit shorter than what Cryptozoic has been putting out lately. This time around, they take on Teen Titans Go! with a new Deck-Building game, appropriately titled the Teen Titans Go!

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.

In this preview for the 2nd edition of the game, we get a look at one of the new stat cards for one of the Batman variants, as well as a look at what some of those special abilities mean.

The next set for Dice Masters is available down at your LGS. It’s the Superman and Wonder Woman starter set. This is the first starter set for the game that’s not tied to a larger set release. As with usual starter sets, though, it’s got enough dice for two players to get started right away building their teams, rolling their dice, and fighting it out.

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. In the upcoming Elseworlds set for HeroClix, there’s a version of Green Arrow that has lost an arm. He’s not letting it get him down, though.
