Tournament Structure

4 Round Pod Tournament with a cut to Top 4 or 8 based on number of players

Round Time: 45 Minutes

3 to 4 Player Pods

Players are expected to play at a fast pace.

At the end of Round time, play continues until each player has had the same number of turns.

Players will earn points at game end in the following order according to how many VP (Victory Points) they have accumulated:

1st: 5 points
2nd: 3 points
3rd: 2 points
4th: 2 points


If points are tied in VP, the game moves to Tiebreaker #1 and a Tiebreaker #2 to determine 1st - 4th placement.
The tiebreakers are:

Tiebreaker #1: Most Super-Villains defeated throughout the tournament
Tiebreaker #2: Most cards in your deck at rounds end

At the end of the last round, Top Cuts are decided by the highest total of points accumulated from each round. Tiebreakers for Top Cut are decided by whoever defeated the most Super-Villains defeated throughout the tournament.

Top Cut

If the top cut for this event will be Top 8, the players will be placed as follows:
Table #1: 1st, 4th, 5th, 8th
Table #2: 2nd, 3rd, 6th, 7th
Only the top 2 players from each table will move on to the Top 4, where a winner will be determined.

NOTE: Top 8 was played with no SuperHeroes w/ Captain Cold having no First Appearance Attack)

Only the top 4 players with the best records from the Pod style tournament will move on to Top 4

NOTE: Top 4 was played with no SuperHeroes. Top 4 players didn't like the idea of Captain Cold not having a First Appearance Attack. All then agreed to give Captain Cold a new First appearance Attack: Discard all cards with a cost of 4 or greater.

Game Format

The Format for each Round will be the DC Comics Deck Building Game base set


All Characters from the DC Comics Deck Building Game base set, including promo Martian Manhunter
NOTE: I printed proxys for those who did not have one for the tournament.

Players will be dealt 2 Super-Hero cards face down at the beginning of the game. They will choose 1 of those to use for the game. Once all Super-Heroes have been chosen, each Player will reveal which Super-Hero they are using.

Specific Rules

Once a Player has moved a card to their Discard Pile from the Line-up and they are no longer physically touching the card, then the Buy is final.

Ending your turn
Once a Player has announced they are done with their turn, then their turn is over. Any player taking their turn early will be considered cheating.
