Storage Box Holds All the Different Sets for Popular DC Deck-Building Game and Includes New Multiverse Crossover Pack

 

Lake Forest, CA – September 12, 2017 – Cryptozoic Entertainment, leading creator of board games, trading cards, and collectibles, and Warner Bros. Consumer Products, on behalf of DC Entertainment, today announced the release of the DC Deck-Building Game Multiverse Box. The storage box holds all the different sets that have been released for the popular DC Deck-Building Game, utilizing set dividers and foam inserts to keep all the cards organized, and has extra room for expansions to come. It comes exclusively with the Multiverse Crossover Pack, which draws from the “Convergence” comic book storyline and offers an experience that takes advantage of a DC Deck-Building Game fan’s entire box of cards.

“We wanted to give players a new, competitive game format that takes advantage of all your neatly-organized cards,” said Matt Hyra, Lead Game Designer at Cryptozoic. “Players always talk about mixing all of their cards together. With the Multiverse format, you get to do that … a little bit at a time.”

In the Multiverse Crossover Pack included with DC Deck-Building Game Multiverse Box, players battle to get past their rivals’ Champions. Each player receives an oversized Multiverse Location card (from the pack), an oversized DC Super Hero/Super-Villain card (from the collection of DC Deck-Building Game cards players have placed in their box) and three DC Super Hero/Super-Villain cards (from the collection in their box) that are his or her Champions. To set up the game, players select a main deck from any of the four current DC Deck-Building Game base sets, shuffle in the 19 new main deck cards, and lay out the standard five-card Line-Up.

The Multiverse Crossover Pack expands gameplay by adding a second Line-Up of five cards, allowing players to build up their decks more easily than ever before. Built using a card set determined by the Randomizer deck, this new Event Line-Up does not refill like the main deck Line-Up does. Instead, when the last card in the Event Line-Up has been removed, a new Event card is flipped face up, creating a new five-card Line-Up from a different random set. The old Event goes away, and a new Ongoing effect is active while these new five cards are around.

There are three new DC Super-Villains in the Multiverse pack: Brainiac, Telos, and Deimos. A player can end the game by being the last man standing (he or she wins!) or by defeating Deimos (highest Victory Point total wins). Note that there is no player elimination in this game.

The DC Deck-Building Game Multiverse Box is available now at retailers nationwide for a suggested retail price of $25

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
