Batman: The Animated Series Dice Game steps out of the shadows . . . and onto shelves

By DekanWheeler

AUSTIN, Texas (December 7, 2016) – Alarm bells sound, but you don’t care: You keep piling wads of cash from the bank vault into your moneybag. Just a little more . . . The World’s Greatest Detective surely won’t arrive any time soon.

In Batman: The Animated Series Dice Game, players attempt massive bank heists as classic Batman Super-Villains like The Joker, The Riddler, Catwoman, and Poison Ivy. How much loot can you grab before the alarm bells summon the Caped Crusader

You can find it at your nearest local game store or select Hot Topic locations now!

This release comes from SJ Games and Cryptozoic Entertainment, in partnership with DC Comics, and it’s based on Batman: The Animated Series.

Roll and then re-roll the dice in this push-your-luck game – you want to roll moneybags, but you don’t want to roll Batman symbols. You are a criminal, after all! The evildoer with the most loot gets away; the Bat gets to the rest of ’em.

Each villain has a unique and diabolical ability. Customize your first roll as The Riddler, gain extra points as The Joker, grab more loot as Catwoman, or cleverly dodge Batman as Poison Ivy.

So if you plan to pick up this game, rest assured: Your evil plan is foolproof.
