This latest set is Worlds finest, which features Superman and Batman as the main "teams" in the pack, all with faction icons on their cards for characters that lean to one side or the other.
Dicemasters plays fast, is fun and filled with tactical choices, do you spend your energy on characters to play? or ability dice to boost your energy production and help. Do you reroll that character to try and get a higher level or play him as he is? When to attack and defend, all of these things require thought and planning, but the way the game plays you will never be slowed down, you can play plenty of games in a short space of time and enjoy them all.
The fact you can pick up boosters for £1 to expand your forces, and all the sets are compatible with each other add another level to the game meaning the teambuilding part of the game is just massive, you want to add some Dragons from the Dungeons and Dragons set to fight alongside Superman? you can. You want Orc warriors running around with Batman? you can. The collectability and customisation of the game is huge.

So lets see whats inside.....
And Olivia had team Batman,
We picked 2 powers each, and went to battle.
After a quick battle things went the Bats way, and she got victory. Good thing the game plays so fast there is plenty of time for a rematch!
So what do I think of the set? so far in all honesty my favourite one yet. Its excellent, and features my 2 favourite heroes. The rulebook has evolved to be so easy to read, and the quality of the components is increasing with every pack. The game is fun, and with so much variety and choice of packs out there that can all battle each other its excellent, and will provide hours of fun for all.
