DC Comics, Star Wars and Board Game

Workman Publishing presents a trio of titles that promise to please comic book, Star Wars and game fans.

DC Comics Super Heroes and Villains (75 Icons From The DC Universe) is a cool flip chart that comes in a box spotlighting the premiere heroes and villains of the DC Universe.

Individual pivoting pages feature one hero or villain on its front, die-cut in the shape of individual characters.

On the remainder of the front and on the back is extensive information about the character, their history, pivotal events and more. 

Behind each hero page are the supporting cast and villains from that particular hero's title.

For example: Batman's cast includes The Joker, Night wing, Robin, Batgirl, Oracle, Batwoman, The Huntress, Catwoman, Two-Face, The Penguin, Ra's Al Ghul, The Riddler, Mr., Freeze, Poison Ivy, The Scarecrow, Killer Croc and Harley Quinn.

Cast and villains follow suite for Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Green Lantern, The Flash, Green Arrow, Hawkman and Hawkwoman, The Atom and other second-tier DC heroes.
There's even an artists listing on the back page.

Star Wars movies have always 'moved' audiences.

Now there is a book, by Rufus Botler Seder, that recreates eleven iconic scenes from the movie serial that brings to life a 'Galaxy Far, Far Away.'

Bound in heavy silver paper stock this small hardbound book features a die-cut cover highlighting the first iconic scene: Luke and Darth Vader in a lightsaber battle.

The Scanimation Book goes on to recreate unforgettable scenes, beloved characters and climactic duels from all six movies-not including The Force Awakens.

"Impressive, most impressive!"

I've always loved board games.  Growing up I enjoyed playing Monopoly, Parcheesi, Sorry!, Life and dozens of other board and strategy games.

While video games have their place, there is nothing like going one-on-one with a friendly game board competition.

The only problem is that they take up a lot of space a
nd are inconvenient to take on trips.
Never fear!  Workman Publishing has the solution.
The Infinite Board Game has everything you need to play hundreds of piecepack games.
Think about it.  What are the main components to board games?

Suits, Banks, Coins, Tiles, Pawns, Dice, Orthoconal Movement and Diagonal Movement components come packed in a study box that also includes instructions for hundreds of games.
How can you go wrong?  For a fraction of the cost of multiple board games you get hundreds of games you can play anywhere!


So whenever the urge hits you to face off against a fellow gamer or play a quick solo game you're set to go.  You can also go online and discover more games or even invent your own!
