• DC World's Finest Starter Video Review: Basic Actions


    Thanks to the wonderful people at WizKids!, I'm back again with another Starter Review, but we're doing things a little differently this time. We're going to break the review into smaller, more easily digested parts. Today, I'm happy to present our first installment: The World's Finest Basic Actions!

    Check back in a few days for the first of the character reviews, starting with Catwoman and Batman!

      This starter is less exciting than I thought it was going to be, Penguin looks cool though!

      The basic actions have their place, but dont have quite as much general utility of some of the stuff seen in FUS. However some of the character cards are pretty fantastic. Especially Oracle. Character reviews are incoming.

      This may just be me, but it seems like fielding costs have dropped dramatically from Spiderman, in that set you had a 2 fielding cost on almost every die.

      They have dropped but not to UXM AVX levels more like back to AOU levels with a few 2 and 3 fielding cost dice, most have only one 0 side a most other than a select few.

      Ug. Trusted Friend is the worst! it is there just for the global as the action face is 100% worse than the energy face! I guess this is the price you pay for running those Batman characters that hate on Superfriends.

      It's roughly the same thing as Batmobile. I think it's best to think of it as a die that's always going to act as energy for you (as long as you're buying).

      It's also a cheap action die that might help for triggering things that happen when action dice are used, but it's not going to come back to haunt you if you bring it to a game.

      All that said, it's unlikely I'd ever buy it.

      The global is going to be pretty handy though.

      Batman looks cool with the mustache. Superman not so much...
