Cryptozoic Entertainment announced the release of the DC Comics Spyfall board game.
In this new iteration of the social deduction game Spyfall, 3-8 players take on the roles of DC’s greatest Super Heroes as they have a secret meeting at an iconic location, such as the Batcave, Daily Planet, or the Fortress of Solitude. The twist is that one of them is secretly The Joker in disguise. In the intense 8-minute rounds, the non-Joker players ask questions and give answers to deduce which one of them is the Clown Prince of Crime without giving away the location, while The Joker player tries to figure out the location before his or her identity is revealed.
DC Spyfall features four modules that add even more variety to the classic Spyfall gameplay. The Powered-Up Module gives each player an Ability card that can provide a One-Shot ability or give that player a restriction. When playing with the Harley Quinn Helper Module, one player is secretly Harley Quinn and tries to help The Joker player win without knowing that player’s identity or revealing his or her own identity
Creating even more zany gameplay are the last two modules. The Joker’s Jest Module introduces an all-Joker deck that can result in everyone playing as The Joker. The player who stops play and correctly recognizes that everyone has Joker cards is the winner. Finally, the Multiverse Madness Module gives most or all of the players different Location cards. It is up to a player to recognize this and get a majority of the others to agree with him or her.
