Cryptozoic Entertainment has announced the release of the sixth expansion to the popular DC Deck-Building Game featuring the Birds of Prey.

“Lots of the cards in the set have Ongoing, so they stay in play turn after turn,” said Matt Hyra, Lead Game Designer at Cryptozoic. “They can be rotated through card effects and they keep that rotation. When they rotate upright, you get a big bonus, and they remain in play to do it all over again!”

Each player chooses a Birds of Prey Super Hero to play as—Oracle, Black Canary, Huntress, Catwoman, Katana, or Batwoman—and then they shuffle in the pack’s 23 new main deck cards into any DC Deck-Building Game base set, instantly adding all-new Equipment, Villain, Hero, Super Power, and Location cards. The pack even comes with eight Super-Villains for the Birds of Prey to battle.

With the “Rotated Cards” mechanic, certain card effects allow players to rotate their cards. There are many bonuses simply for controlling rotated cards, making Ongoing cards especially beneficial since they maintain their rotated status. Moreover, some Ongoing cards generate a large bonus when they rotate for a fourth time, returning upright.

The DC Deck-Building Game Crossover Pack 6: Birds of Prey is available now for a suggested retail price of $13. For those who dig playing the game, like we do, this is a much needed update to the game.
