DC Deck-Building Game Gets a New Expansion with New Gods

Cryptozoic and Warner Bros. Consumer Products have announced a new expansion coming to the DC Deck-Building Game coming in July. This pack works with any of the sets you've already purchased or mixed together, with the added bonus of playing as one of the  New Gods or their rival Super-Villains, including Orion, Mister Miracle, Big Barda, Kalibak, Granny Goodness, or Darkseid. This seventh crossover pack is 26 cards in total with no duplicates from previous sets, so you'll be seeing a lot of new battle combinations and outcomes.

Here's a little more info from the publisher of how the deck works.

Instead of the usual Super-Villain stack, there are two stacks of HOMEWORLD cards. Each Homeworld has a special ability that all players can take advantage of, as many of the New Gods have spent time on both sides of the conflict. If you are Darkseid, you seek to conquer New Genesis … but so do your fellow Super-Villain players. The Super Heroes, conversely, compete to conquer Apokolips. When either Level 3 Homeworld is conquered, that ends the game and the player with the most VPs wins!

Once the cards and oversized Characters in this expansion get going, they reach heights unheard of in the series until now. For instance, Orion's game text is: "Once during each of your turns, if you have 9+ Power, draw two cards." All of the Hero and Villain cards in the set also feature a new keyword: Protector. By simply revealing a Protector from your hand, you may be able to thwart an invasion of your Homeworld. It's up to you to save the your world!
