Supergamewas the first superhero roleplaying game to provide total player control in creating characters by utilizing a point-based system to determine both prime statistics and powers. This is old school superhero roleplaying. Create your hero by allocating points to desired prime statistics, abilities, and powers for the character you want, rather than one that the dice choose.
Supergame 3E is now available in PDF format. You can also pre-order the Softcover for only $16.95 (regular price of $19.95) and read the PDF while you wait.
The classic version of Supergame is also available in both PDF and Softcover formats, combining first and second editions, as well as its two supplements, into a single volume.
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.
