Batman: Arkham City Escape Board Game Details

Batman™: Arkham City Escape is a two-player game that pits Batman against all of his greatest foes as they try to escape Arkham! In this game, one player represents Batman, and the other player represents the villains.

In February 2013, we saw the new Batman Arkham game and no one confirmed it. Batman Arkham City: Escape. Batman Arkham City: Escape is a two-player board game that pits Batman against all of his greatest foes as they try to escape Arkham. This board games comes to you from Cryptozoic Entertainment. One player gets to take on the role of Batman while the other player plays as a team of various Batman villains, earning points for helping inmates escape Arkham. Batman will earn points by catching villains before they manage to flee the city. The first player to earn 10 points wins. Cryptozoic Entertainment says “no two games play out the same, as the villain player uses a random assortment of villains each time”. Each of the villains has “special abilities” to use in order to escape Batman. Batman will be able to use various Utility Belt cards to use his gadgets in order to win.

Oh Boo... That title is mean.

We thought it was a Batman video game. A sequel to Arkham City. A board game is incredibly underwhelming. Which would you rather play? Video game or board game?

Obviously he intentionally titled it this way so his article would get more hits.

Do you feel sly for pulling one over our eyes? That's just wrong and a huge let down.

DCKfilms - 11/28/2012, 8:19 PM

FirstAvenger - 11/28/2012, 8:33 PM
Wait was Joseph gordon-levitt as Batman a joke to?
DCKfilms - 11/28/2012, 10:32 PM
I hope so. Love the actor... But I want to see a muscular Bats now, instead of armored

@LEVI well played buddy. I kinda guessed it'd be an April Fool's joke, but didn't expect the board game stuff. This may be the best prank on the site today. Nice one.
AC1 - 4/1/2013, 10:33 AM
Wait... this wasn't posted on April Fools? Colour me confused.
TheOneAboveAll - 4/1/2013, 12:43 PM
This boardgame sounds really good
Tech3099 - 4/1/2013, 10:48 PM
Another reason why I'm starting to dislike this site more and more...

Better watch it or else I'm going back to Screenrant or one of the dozens of other sites that aren't fascist [fricks]...
scootaloo - 4/7/2013, 7:37 PM
Wait, so people are getting mad because he put the name of the board game into the title of the article. Man, I love the logic on this site.
