If you have any doubt that deck building games continue to be a hot seller, then the Valiant Universe: The Deck Building Game release should assure you that anything can get the DBG treatment.
Valiant Entertainment has teamed with Catalyst Game Labs to develop the game featuring your favorite superheroes.
Deep beneath Alcatraz prison lies a top secret base operated by the paramilitary contractor known as Project Rising Spirit. Known only as “the Facility,” P.R.S.’s secret bunker is armed with enough power to change the world—or destroy it. When word of the subterranean facility leaks, the Valiant Universe’s most powerful groups, including The Harbinger Foundation, G.A.T.E., and the Harbinger Renegades, race to acquire the deadly possessions and put the fate of the world in their hands! With a cataclysmic confrontation imminent, take control with your warring team and claim P.R.S.’s base for yourself! As the Valiant Universe’s greatest heroes fight at your command, move your superhero miniatures through an interactive facility grid to acquire cards for an unbeatable deck and attack your opponents in a world-shaking battle for supremacy!
The Valiant Universe: The Deck Building Game contains:
Five highly detailed superhero miniatures, including X-O Manowar, Faith, Bloodshot, Livewire, and Ninjak!
5 Zone of Influence cards
5 Organization cards
25 Basic cards
25 Shutdown cards
15 Power cards
175 Sector cards

According to Valiant, if you pre-order the game now, you’ll be able to get a limited edition figurine of Rai. The suggested retail price of the game is $59.99.
I really dig deck building games, and this just might find its way onto our game shelf in the near future.
