Cryptozoic Entertainment announced the release of the DC Comics Spyfall board game.
In this new iteration of the social deduction game Spyfall, 3-8 players take on the roles of DC’s greatest Super Heroes as they have a secret meeting at an iconic location, such as the Batcave, Daily Planet, or the Fortress of Solitude. The twist is that one of them is secretly The Joker in disguise. In the intense 8-minute rounds, the non-Joker players ask questions and give answers to deduce which one of them is the Clown Prince of Crime without giving away the location, while The Joker player tries to figure out the location before his or her identity is revealed.
DC Spyfall features four modules that add even more variety to the classic Spyfall gameplay. The Powered-Up Module gives each player an Ability card that can provide a One-Shot ability or give that player a restriction. When playing with the Harley Quinn Helper Module, one player is secretly Harley Quinn and tries to help The Joker player win without knowing that player’s identity or revealing his or her own identity
Creating even more zany gameplay are the last two modules. The Joker’s Jest Module introduces an all-Joker deck that can result in everyone playing as The Joker. The player who stops play and correctly recognizes that everyone has Joker cards is the winner. Finally, the Multiverse Madness Module gives most or all of the players different Location cards. It is up to a player to recognize this and get a majority of the others to agree with him or her.

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.
