DC Deck-Building Game: Crisis Expansion Pack 4

Expansion Featuring Cooperative Play, Unity Cards, and Personal Crisis Cards Can Be Added to Any DC Deck-Building Game and Will Debut at Gen Con at Cryptozoic’s Booth #601

Lake Forest, CA – August 1, 2018 – Cryptozoic Entertainment, leading creator of board games, trading cards, and physical and digital collectibles, and Warner Bros. Consumer Products, on behalf of DC Entertainment, today announced the limited release of DC Deck-Building Game: Crisis Expansion Pack 4 at Gen Con, August 2-5, followed by a full retail release on August 8. The expansion can be added to any game in the popular DC Deck-Building Game series to introduce cooperative play, Unity cards that can combine for powerful effects, and Personal Crisis cards that directly affect the owner of the card.

DC Deck-Building Game: Crisis Expansion Pack 4

“Personal Crises are a new twist we wanted to explore after the world-altering Crises of the previous three expansions,” explained Matt Dunn, the game’s lead designer. “DC’s Teen Titans stories have always explored the relationships as much as crime-fighting, and that is reflected in the up-close-and-personal nature of the Crisis effects in this set.”

In the expansion, the keyword “Unity” is found on several Ongoing cards. When a Unity card is played, the player gains the benefit of that card, as well as well the benefits of any other Unity cards that are already in play. Therefore, gameplay rewards teamwork, as players can take advantage of each other’s Unity cards.

The set’s Personal Crisis cards cause Ongoing detrimental effects that impact individual members of the team, frequently hampering them in some way. Despite being targeted at one player, Personal Crises can end up taking down the whole team by depleting the main deck. The other players can help a player overcome a Personal Crisis, underlining again that teamwork is the key to victory.

Though the game works with any DC Deck-Building Game base set, it is optimized to work with DC Deck-Building Game: Teen Titans. It features Crisis versions of eight DC Teen Titans Super Heroes and comes with six DC Super Hero cards based on the Titans, original members of the Teen Titans who are all grown up: Arsenal, Donna Troy, Nightwing, Omen, Tempest, and The Flash.

DC Deck-Building Game: Crisis Expansion Pack 4 will be available in limited quantities at Cryptozoic’s Booth #601 at Gen Con before hitting retailers nationwide August 8 for a suggested retail price of $20.
