Batman: The Animated Series Almost Got ‘Im Card Game Available

March 11th, 2017

Cryptozoic Entertainment has released a new Batman: The Animated Series card game, Almost Got ‘Im.

The villains of Gotham City have gathered for a poker night and to share stories about the time they nearly dispensed with that troublesome caped crusader, Batman. Little do they know that the Dark Knight is in their midst, disguised as one of their own. Will the rogues be able to suss out the bat in their belfry before he clandestinely subdues them?

This variant on the popular Werewolf-style deduction game, inspired by the memorable Batman The Animated Series episode “Almost Got ‘Im”, adds a poker element to the proceedings, requiring participants to craft poker hands to activate their special abilities when the lights go out. Take on the personas of classic Batman baddies in a game where everyone has something to hide and no one is safe.

With Poker hands guiding the action, players have something to talk about. Everyone has an important role. No bystanders in this game! Too often, social deduction games begin with random accusations just to get the ball rolling. Not so here. Players can request Poker cards from other players, and often see what cards other players are taking. Enemies are made when someone takes the card you wanted. Now you have a reason to be suspicious of another player!

December 9th, 2016

Alarm bells sound, but you don’t care: You keep piling wads of cash from the bank vault into your moneybag. Just a little more . . . The World’s Greatest Detective surely won’t arrive any time soon.

In Batman: The Animated Series Dice Game from Cryptozoic Entertainment and Steve Jackson Games, players attempt massive bank heists as classic Batman Super-Villains like The Joker, The Riddler, Catwoman, and Poison Ivy. How much loot can you grab before the alarm bells summon the Caped Crusader?

This release comes from SJ Games and Cryptozoic Entertainment, in partnership with DC Comics, and it’s based on Batman: The Animated Series.

Roll and then re-roll the dice in this push-your-luck game – you want to roll moneybags, but you don’t want to roll Batman symbols. You are a criminal, after all! The evildoer with the most loot gets away; the Bat gets to the rest of ’em.
Each villain has a unique and diabolical ability. Customize your first roll as The Riddler, gain extra points as The Joker, grab more loot as Catwoman, or cleverly dodge Batman as Poison Ivy.

I’m Batman .. Fluxx

August 12th, 2015

It’s game night in Gotham, and everyone’s favorite Caped Crusader is on the job. Crime is running amok and no-one can win with Villains on the table — so put on your utility belts and leap into the fray to help Batman and his friends clean things up! Draw one and Play one is just the beginning… From camp to chaos, Batman™ Fluxx by Cryptozoic Entertainment has something for every bat-fan!

It all begins with one basic rule: Draw one card, Play one card. You start with a hand of three cards… add the card you drew to your hand, and then choose one card to play, following the directions written on your chosen card. As cards are drawn and played from the deck, the rules of the game change from how many cards are drawn, played or even how many cards you can hold at the end of your turn.

You can play these two new versions and pick up some promos for them at some of the biggest conventions of the year.

Looney Labs will be headed to San Diego Comic Con and Gen Con over the next couple months and they’d love to see you at their booth. They’ll be letting you try out both Adventure Time Fluxx and Batman Fluxx and will have various promo cards for them.
