WizKids announced an expansion set for its DC Comics Dice Masters game next March featuring the iconic heroes Batman and Superman.  The Superman/Batman line will include Starter Sets, Foil Packs, a Team Box, a Collector’s Box, a Playmat, and Dice Bags.

The dice and cards in the Superman/Batman series also introduces new game mechanics: the “Allies” keyword as well as the “Iron Will” and “Vengeance” abilities.  Over 30 heroes and villains make up the new card and dice for this expansion.

The DC Comics Dice Masters:  Superman/Batman Starter Set will include popular DC characters Batman, Superman, and Power Girl.  It includes enough dice and cards for two players to compete in head-to-head matches.  MSRP is $19.99.

Additional dice and cards will be available in randomly-packed Foil Packs, sold in gravity feeds.  Each Foil Pack includes two dice and two cards.  The characters available in these packs include Batman, Superman, Lois Lane, Power Girl, Nightwing, Batgirl, and the villains usually held in Arkham Asylum. 

Collectors can purchase the more deluxe Superman/Batman Collector’s Box - which is large enough to store more than 300 Dice Masters dice - to hold their collection.  It includes two storage trays, 4 Superman/Batman Foil Packs, a felt dice bag, 15 game cards, and 20 dice.  MSRP is $24.99.

A number of game accessories will also be made available.  The Team Box is a deluxe storage option for players to hold their pieces.  The plastic box features a magnetic closure, and includes two internal boxes and three dividers to help players sort their components.  MSRP is $19.99.  A Superman/Batman Playmat measuring 24” by 13” can be used to help players sort their components during the game.  MSRP is $19.99.  Upgraded dice bags featuring the title characters Superman and Batman will round out the line.  MSRP is  $14.99 each.

This expansion set will follow the War of Light expansion set, scheduled to release on September 16 (see “‘DC Comics Dice Masters:  War of Light’”).

WizKids has big plans for the two iconic DC characters, which are also featured in a HeroClix set releasing in February (see “New Year Brings Multiple Batman/Superman ‘HeroClix’ Sets”).
