Hard-Traveling Fanboys Podcast #65: Off the Page — DC Comics Deck-Building Game

Mild-mannered reporters by day, Greg Phillips and Nick Duke share an intense love of comic books that has made them the Hard-Traveling Fanboys. And their love of comics isn’t limited to the page. In Off the Page, Greg and Nick will examine pieces of comic book media outside the comics themselves.

In this edition, Greg and Nick are joined by longtime listener Andrew Garner and Sellers Points host Russell Sellers to play through the DC Comics Deck-Building Game by Cryptozoic Entertainment. It’s the first time we’ve tried a live podcast while playing a game, so prepare yourself! Also, stick around for an extended review of Spider-Man Homecoming! A spoiler warning is included near the end before said spoilers.

  1. I do not need anymore hobbies or interests, but that deck building game is something I’m intrigued by. As you guys play more, would love PodBlasts on your experiences

    1. It was my first ever deck building experience. We’ll have to see if we can nab a cheap copy of Marvel Legendary for a future show.

    2. Are any of the Crisis games single player?

      Marvel *does* have that going for them as many of the campaigns/challenges can be played solo.

  2. After playing all of the various expansions, the Crisis mode was by far the most fun. There are fun aspects to the other expansions, but Crisis added more fun elements to the game and forced you to plan for yourself and others and actually talk strategy. Of course, if you get a rough villain/Crisis combo (we landed Joker and Atlantis Attacks at one point) finding a way out it tough.
