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.
From the post:
Cryptozoic Entertainment, leading creator of board games, trading cards, and collectibles, and Warner Bros. Consumer Products, on behalf of DC Entertainment, today announced the November 29 release of DC Deck-Building Game: Confrontations. In the 2-4 player team vs. team game, each player selects a DC Super Hero (Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, or Zatanna) or DC Super-Villain (Lex Luthor, Circe, Ocean Master, or Felix Faust) and joins another player on his or her team for a clash against two opponents. The game uses Cryptozoic’s popular Cerberus Engine, which has players build up their decks with the goal of defeating one of their opponents. The new keyword “Assist” on many cards allows a player to lend some help to his or her teammate. Though standalone, the game can be combined with any of the variations of the DC Deck-Building Game to create an even larger experience.
