The likes of Superman and Batman can handle any monster, alien or mad scientist that comes their way. But what happens when things get a bit supernatural?

Most people play RPGs to escape the slings and arrows of the real world, but the new PC video card game Dungeons & Deadlines takes the opposite approach.
The Final Fantasy Trading Card Game has shipped over 200 million cards worldwide, but it’s not showing any signs of slowing down.

This art has been crafted by the following Final Fantasy veteran artists:
