DC Deck-Building Game: Rivals—Green Lantern vs. Sinestro will be released Oct. 31 for a suggested retail price of $20. In the game, two players battle as DC rivals Green Lantern and Sinestro. As the game progresses, players buy more powerful cards to attack and defend until their opponent’s three oversized character cards are defeated.
A player can either take a normal turn and buy cards to build up his or her deck, or a confrontation turn to challenge his or her opponent directly. During a confrontation, a player must have power equal or exceeding his or her opponent’s current oversized character to defeat it. Green Lantern and Sinestro each have three unique character cards, each with more formidable abilities and a higher cost than the previous one.
The winner is the player who defeats his or her opponent’s final character card first. Or, the player who has the most victory points wins if opponents are unable to refill the line-up at any point.
The game is fully compatible with the other games in the Confrontations line, including DC Deck-Building Game: Confrontations and DC Deck-Building Game: Rivals—Batman vs. The Joker. It can also be combined with other Cerberus Engine deck-building games to create a custom game experience.
To coincide with the game’s release, Cryptozoic will also launch DC Deck-Building Game: 2018 Organized Play Kit 2, which includes instructions for stores to run tournaments for this and other games in the DC Deck-Building Game series. It includes a limited-edition Playmat, 12 Gypsy Hero Promo Cards, and a Gypsy poster.
