Cryptozoic Entertainment announced the November 29 release of Teen Titans Go! Deck-Building Game.
In this two-player game based on the popular TV show Teen Titans Go!, each player becomes a member of the team—Robin, Starfire, Cyborg, Beast Boy, or Raven—and engages in a friendly competition to take down DC Super-Villains such as Blackfire and the H.I.V.E. Five. Each player starts with one DC Super Hero, but is able to recruit “Sidekicks,” other Titans who can help the player. Each DC Super Hero has a Sidekick version on the back with information on how to recruit it.
In the game, players can have multiple Sidekicks, gaining full access to the abilities on their cards. Potential Sidekicks are comprised of all the DC Super Heroes that are not chosen at the start of play. Players can recruit and steal them by playing specific cards, which can create an additional level of conflict as players take Sidekicks away from their competitors.
Teen Titans Go! Deck-Building Game will be available at retailers nationwide November 29 for a suggested retail price of $25. The game utilizes Cryptozoic’s popular Cerberus Engine, meaning it can be combined with other Cerberus deck-building games to expand game play.

Asking for help is never a strong suit for villains, but sometimes they need a helping hand to snag a big score or take down a worthy hero. Villains like Captain Cold, Weather Wizard, Heatwave and the rest often need to work together to take down The Flash and his speedy allies. With DC Comics Deck-Building Game Crossover Pack 5: The Rogues, you become a Super-Villain who always has some help within reach, thanks to Teamwork.
“Teamwork” is a keyword found on each of the oversized Super-Villain cards and several new cards for the main deck. It allows you to play the top card of another player’s deck. The code “honor among thieves” usually applies here, as the player who you chose to assist you gets a piece of the action.
Speaking of action, every Rogues card in the set immediately grants you Victory Point tokens when acquired. These VP tokens will come in handy during the game. After all, it takes money to make money . . .
Adds additional play value to DC Comics Deck-Building Game, Heroes Unite, Forever Evil, or Teen Titans.
This is not a standalone product and must be used with one of the games mentioned above.
