Deadpool seems to be all over everything geeky these days, and some places in the main stream culture, so of course games about him are coming too.  Well, maybe not a game, but an expansion to a highly popular game and that is Marvel Dice Masters: Deadpool.  This will bring our beloved anti-hero into the game along with other characters like Lady Deadpool, Dogpool, and Evil Deadpool.  Also mentioned is that this set will bring in the “Inhumans, new characters from the Spider-Verse, and more characters from the pages of What If?“.  So if you need a bit more sass and breaking of the 4th wall in you dice masters set, then look for these boosters on store shelves in November.  For more information you can check out the Wizkids page for preview images of the new cards in the set.

Fantasy Flight Games has announced a new collectible dice and card game with a November arrival. Star Wars: Destiny allows players to create their dream team of Hero OR Villain partnerships (but not both on the same team). In this two player battle game, combine two characters from one side to create your team. Choose from characters spanning the entire Star Wars cannon from The Phantom Menace to The Force Awakens.

At launch there will be the Kylo Ren Starter Set, Rey Starter Set, and Awakenings Booster Packs. Starter set contain 24 fixed cards and nine premium dice, while booster packs contain 5 random cards and a premium die. In addition to the two characters and dice, each player will also have a custom deck containing event, support, and upgrade cards, some of which resolve and are removed, while others will persist from turn to turn.

Characters fall into three factions: Force, Command, and Rogue, and the choice of a players team, will focus their strategy. Players will each bring a Battlefield card to the game, and before the first turn will roll to determine who’s Battlefield the duel will take place. Using the Battlefield is an integral part of timing and strategy.

Head to Fantasy Flight’s website for more details and to read the full announcement. I for one, hope to see an epic battle between Han/Chewbacca and Boba/Jengo Fett.

Wizkids is starting to shake up how they are going to release Dice Masters with their first annual starter set in January 2017.  Marvel Dice Masters: Iron Man and War Machine will be the first starter set that won’t be linked to a larger release and just be a new entry point for people to join while still adding some new content to the game.  Will this mark the point were Wizkids transitions away from having starter sets in each new expansion?  Doubtful, but we will have to wait and see.  You can read the announcement on the ICv2 site here.
