Cryptozoic will add Crossover Packs, a new product configuration, to its DC Deck-Building Game line, the company announced at Toy Fair.  The new $10 package offers "new superheroes to play and new villains to take down," Cryptozoic Creative Director Adam Sblendoria told ICv2.  The cards from Crossover Packs can be added "to any of the stand-alones to add a new flavor," he said.  Crossover Pack #1--JSA will ship in March.  This is the first of several planned Packs.

Crossover Pack #1--JSA will follow Crisis Expansion Pack 2, due out this month (see "'Crisis Expansion Pack 2'").

Cryptozoic will release a second Epic Spell Wars game, Epic Spell Wars of the Battle Wizards:  Rumble at Castle Tentakill, in May.  The new game is fully compatible with the first, and can also be played as a stand-alone.  MSRP is $30.

The first Epic Spell Wars game, which was released in 2012 (see "More on 'Epic Spell Wars'"), will be featured on TableTop in March (see "'TableTop' Season 3 Game List Released"), which will give the second game a good send-off.

And Cryptozoic has announced a new release date for its Portal Board Game, which was originally planned for release in August of 2014 (see "'Portal' from Cryptozoic").  The game will street in July, after a painstaking process by both Cryptozoic and Valve to ensure high quality for the miniatures in the game, Sblendoria told us.
