Cryptozoic are well known for creating “fan first” products for a variety of fandoms, varying from collectibles to table top card games.
Now, their latest release celebrates that classic Superhero era with The “Challenge Of The Superfriends” card game. I’m a sucker for a board game, I’ll be honest. And this game features ICONIC artwork with a very retro feel and classic characters, which really is a great touch.
Here is the official write up from Cryptozoic on the game “The Superfriends have gathered at the Hall of Justice to take on the challenge of thirteen of the most sinister villains of all time. Play your cards right and you’ll defeat the Legion of Doom! Based on the classic animated TV show, Challenge of the Superfriends Card Game utilizes Cryptozoic’s new GRYPHON card game engine to deliver a fast-paced, easy-to-learn tabletop experience.“
The game is ideal for 2-4 players for simultaneous play against the Legion of Doom! It promises to reward luck and strategy within addictive game play – I am sold! You can play as Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and Aquaman, and call forth allies and use superpowers by using the cards you are dealt. Of course, the artwork of the game is based upon the classic animated TV series, and I love that. It really is a blast from the past.
The game is available for pre-order now and is said to be released very soon. It will be priced at around £14.99 in the UK and around the same in the US. You can pre-order the game here.
I think this game sounds great, and it is such a good way to introduce the youngsters to the classic characters we know and love. I can’t wait to play!
