Steven Universe: Beach-a-Palooza Card Battling Game: Based on Cartoon Network’s beloved series, this easy-to-learn card-drafting game features a fun battle-of-the-bands theme and eye-catching art with fan-favorite characters. Designed by Erica Bouyouris and Andrew Wolf, it lets 2-6 players each become a Steven and try to recruit characters to their Stage and Audience at Beach City’s event of the year. At the same time, they must fend off Party Crashers—Corrupted and Homeworld Gems—who want to ruin their amazing performance.
Epic Spell Wars™ of the Battle Wizards: Hijinx at Hell High: The fifth entry in the hugely popular series brings all the spellcrafting and trademark over-the-top humor and art to the world of high school. In the game, 2-6 players move up and down the Social Status Board, which ranges from the Ultimate Loser to Class President, and utilize the new keyword “Bully” as they try to annihilate their fellow Wizards.
DC Deck-Building Game: Dark Nights: Metal: Based on the wildly popular Dark Nights: Metal comic book series, the latest entry in the DC Deck-Building Game series lets 2-5 players take on The Batman Who Laughs and other evil versions of the Caped Crusader from the Dark Multiverse. Players must rescue and Recruit fellow members of the Justice League, take advantage of instant rewards for defeating Super-Villains, and utilize foil cards with the new sub-type “Metal” as they race to save the Multiverse.
Spyfest™: A spinoff of the hit Spyfall series, this detective party game takes two teams to a super-spy convention where one player is a Spy disguised as a memorable historical or fictional character. The Spy’s goal is to describe their character using subtle references to a Keyword only known to their teammates, so that their team identifies the character before their rivals. Featuring over 70 original comical illustrations and characters like Abraham Lincoln, Albert Einstein, and Zorro, this 4-10 player game requires quick-wittedness and imagination to win.
Outlander Trading Cards Season 4: The latest trading card set based on Starz's beloved time-travel drama features autographs from stars Sam Heughan, Caitriona Balfe, and Ed Speleers. Based on the fourth season of the show, which finds Claire and Jamie trying to make a new home in 18th century America, the release includes a 72-card Base Set, five Chase Sets (including Playing Cards), and randomly inserted Autograph Cards and Wardrobe Cards that contain pieces of fabric used to make the lavish costumes in the show.
