We’re back with one of our most popular features in Versus. This week we’re pitting an expansion to a popular deck building game against one of the largest and most complex Superhero games published today – it’s DC Deck Building Game with the Crisis Expansion vs. Marvel Legendary. In addition we’ll talk about a couple of brain burners and the use of IPs in gaming as a whole.
Shout it from the Tabletop
The guys stand back, give Drew some room, and discuss the hottest news items in the industry. From recent news articles in global newspapers and magazines to recent game releases and upcoming events, let’s hear what he’s got.
Acquisition Disorder Corner
There are so many games coming out right now (seriously, Gencon AND Essen are dumping their collective releases all at once right now) and we’re apoplectic trying to figure out which games we want more. Listen as the guys try to figure out what they should be picking up, what to wait on, and what will go on Santa’s list this year.
At the Table
Drew talks about a classic but a favorite in Power Boats this week and Chris shares his thoughts on Five Tribes – one of the biggest brain burners of the last few years and a controversial experience for a number of reasons. What’s the verdict on Days of Wonders’ big 2014 release?
Feature: DC Deck Building Game: Crisis Expansion vs. Marvel Legendary
For this week’s versus feature, we take a look at the newest co-op expansion for DC Deck Building Game and share whether it lives up to the epic experience that is the Marvel Legendary system. If you’re looking for cooperative superhero deck building, which game should you pick?
Final Round: IPs in Board Games
Board gaming is in a renaissance right now – with new ideas, new games, and new types of games hitting the market seemingly every week. IPs are a big part of that – here are some we would love to see more of as the hobby continues to evolve.
