The New Batman Dice Masters from Wizkids Are Double The Fun!
D.C. Comics Batman Dice Masters by Wizkids
Wizkids has introduced the newest line of their popular Dice Masters series, Batman. THIS is the set I have been waiting for. I love Batman. I feel that the cast of characters and the mythos is one of the best (if not the best) in comic book history. Villains like The Riddler, Mr. Freeze, Two-Face, and Hush all make for some great stories for as long as Batman remains relevant. One of the things that I love about Batman is that with some of his adversaries have an alternate side to them. District Attorney Harvey Dent / Two-Face is a perfect example of this. Starting out as a well respected D.A. that fought hard against crime in Gotham, Two-Face can also be a dangerous criminal that has no issues trying to do whatever it takes to make sure Batman does not interfere with his nefarious deeds.
Wizkids capitalizes on this trait by releasing for the first time ever, double-sided cards. These cards usually have two different affiliations, and have a command to turn the card over if certain conditions are met. This adds new strategy to building your deck and how to play against someone that has these special cards in play.
The artwork on the cards is amazing and spans different art-styles of Batman and other characters throughout the years. The dice themselves are still really neat to collect, some are nicer looking than others. Most have a design that allows you to easily identify which character the dice belong to. There are cool colors with marble effects, translucent dice, and a wide arrangement of color schemes. I am definitely seeing better quality control on both the dice and the cards since the origin of Dice Masters, the craftsmanship of both the dice and the cards is high-tier.
Dice Masters continues to be a great game to collect for and play as Wizkids keeps evolving the brand. Still only priced at just one dollar for two random cards and dice, it makes is a no-brainer to pick these up when seen. Even with doubles you expand your dice arsenal making your match-ups deadlier. I am glad they have reduced the starter sets to one a year, as the boosters and team packs are really the draw for veteran collectors and players like us. Overall, the Batman Dice Masters set is breathing fresh air into the game, and is using the D.C. license correctly. Take a look at our unboxing video below to see what cards we pulled!
