• WizKids Wednesday: Green Arrow and Flash, Part 1


    We're less than a month away from the release of Green Arrow and Flash and we've got some packs to crack in advance! Sure to shake things up in more way than one, Green Arrow and Flash brings us several firsts in the Dice Masters World. The first set without a starter or Basic Actions. The first set with dual energy characters (dubbed Crossover characters). The first set with foil cards. With all these firsts and the soon to be released first Team Pack, Doctor Strange, it's an exciting time to see where the game goes!

    Big thanks go out to WizKids for providing these packs for review.

    This week we open our first five packs. Be sure check back next week for part two of the video where we open the other five packs.

      Maybe this is picky, but I really liked the set reference cards that came with the starters so you knew, at a glance, which characters were in the set, how many versions of each, and their rarities. Is that information only going to be available on line now, or do we know?

      It is currently unknown if there will be any sort of checklist card. It could be included in a gravity feed, but it's probably a safer assumption there isn't going to be one and online sources will be needed for the info. The good news is we know pretty certainly that there are 3 versions of each character other than one of each of the 4 White Lantern super rares. No starter, so no 4-of characters.

      Thanks for responding so quickly. I was sort of expecting that. I had read between the lines and suspected from the numbers we might be getting 44 total including 4 unique SR; I just like knowing off hand what they are as some distribution is kind of wonky (opened an X Men case with exactly one Colossus in it) and I like to know what the distribution is, i. e. f there is an SR did they skip the Uncommon or the Rare. I did say I was picky. Thanks again.

      I'm really excited for this set. I can do without the foils, but I'm glad to finally see Black Adam and an introduction to the Suicide Squad. And the return of Deathstroke!

      Here is the entire known checklist, currently only missing 3 commons, 7 uncommons, and 20 Rares. All SRs are skipping the Rare. All the numbering checks out perfectly. Every card with a subtitle has been seen and verified (and will shortly have a Wiki page, if not already):
