Cryptozoic and Warner Bros. Consumer Products Announce Release of DC Deck-Building Game Crossover Pack 6: Birds of Prey
Pack Can Be Added to Any DC Deck-Building Game to Play as the Birds of Prey and Add New Card Rotation Mechanic
Lake Forest, CA – September 13, 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 DC Deck-Building Game Crossover Pack 6: Birds of Prey. The expansion for the popular DC Deck-Building Game series allows players to play as the popular all-female DC Super Hero team the Birds of Prey. The team utilizes a brand-new “Rotated Cards” mechanic.
“Lots of the cards in the set have Ongoing, so they stay in play turn after turn,” said Matt Hyra, Lead Game Designer at Cryptozoic. “They can be rotated through card effects and they keep that rotation. When they rotate upright, you get a big bonus, and they remain in play to do it all over again!”
Each player chooses a Birds of Prey Super Hero to play as—Oracle, Black Canary, Huntress, Catwoman, Katana, or Batwoman—and then they shuffle in the pack’s 23 new main deck cards into any DC Deck-Building Game base set, instantly adding all-new Equipment, Villain, Hero, Super Power, and Location cards. The pack even comes with eight Super-Villains for the Birds of Prey to battle.
With the “Rotated Cards” mechanic, certain card effects allow players to rotate their cards. There are many bonuses simply for controlling rotated cards, making Ongoing cards especially beneficial since they maintain their rotated status. Moreover, some Ongoing cards generate a large bonus when they rotate for a fourth time, returning upright.
DC Deck-Building Game Crossover Pack 6: Birds of Prey is available at retailers nationwide now for a suggested retail price of $13. It requires a copy of the original DC Deck-Building Game or one of its standalone expansions—Heroes Unite, Forever Evil, or Teen Titans—to play.
- Number of players: 2-5
