Pretty much everything that you can print Batman on has been sold already, including several variations of a Batman card game…but wheover created THIS one, I have to tip my metaphorical hat to. They knew what they were doing.
This is a Batman: The Animated Series card game, but one clearly created by a fan…it’s based on a specific episode. In “Almost Got ‘Im” Gotham’s rogue’s gallery sat around a poker table, swapping stories of their most nearly successful attempts at ridding themselves of the Dark Knight. Not only was one of the original run’s best ideas, it lends itself to the card game format better than any other episode. What a genius product!
In order to explain the rules, I’m going to have to spoil the episode, so if you somehow haven’t seen it yet, please do so before reading on. “Almost Got ‘Im” plays like a hybrid of Poker and Werewolf. Each player assumes a villain’s identity and….one of them is secretly Batman, but you don’t know which one. As you play your goal is not just to have (or fake) a winning hand but to undermine your opponents and sniff out which one is Batman in disguise. Determining who’s bluffing takes on a new dimension!
“Batman: Almost Got ‘Im Card Game” is available now from Cryptozoic Entertainment.
