Batman™: Gotham City Chronicles is a mission-based miniatures board game where 2 to 4 players control the Dark Knight and his allies in their never-ending battle against crime through an asymmetrical and open game system.
Each game involves an action-packed fight where two sides face off. One of the players assumes the role of the Villain and controls the most notorious criminals of Gotham City. The remaining players take control of the Heroes, who must work together as a team to foil the Villain’s plots. Each side takes turns, pitting their strategies against each other in order to achieve their objectives.
Each game of Batman™: Gotham City Chronicles is played according to a mission which describes the plot, location of the action, setup of the game, number of turns, and the specific objectives each side is trying to achieve in order to win the game.
The game involves two opposing sides: the heroes and the villain. We wanted to represent that dynamic up front by making it obvious from the art on the boxes. That's right, boxes, because one box will not be enough to fit everything you will get.
But this separation has another purpose: it eases the setup of the game. The hero box contains the hero boards, screens, cards... everything the heroes need to play a mission. The villain box contains the miniatures, tiles, dice, and everything needed to prepare the command board for the fight to come. These 2 boxes will constitute the core game, which include all the base offerings plus all the Stretch Goals you have unlocked during the first campaign.
This pledge level allows you to pick and choose what you want, and then decide on your pledge level € total. A default pledge of €7 has been set, as this is almost the lowest value element of this campaign. Once you have made your selection and have totaled its’ value, you can directly enter that total € amount as your pledge.
For example: All you want is the Suicide Squad add-on (26 €), Batman Inc add-on (26 €), White Rabbit (6.5€), Carmine Falcone (6.5 €), and Nobody (6.5 €) from the picking zone. A total of 71.5€
So, select the “Your choice - Open pledge” pledge level and enter that total amount of 71.5€, overwriting the minimum pledge amount and you are set.
Adventure mode racked up 42 missions in season 1, is still supported with 9 NEW missions in season 2. And, some of the new season 2 characters can also be used in S1 core box adventure mode missions.
Finally, all season 2 characters come with their own tile, opening up a wider Versus mode selection pool for the 10 NEW versus mode missions.
Why are there two prices?
There are two prices displayed on season 2 elements, the lesser one is exclusive to this KS campaign, and the other will be the price per item once the Monolith WebShop goes live.
FYI - We anticipate that the Season 2 Batman product will be available on the Webstore several months after the Season 2 kickstarter has been delivered.

If your pledge includes ANY elements from season 2, then the Red Hood is yours - free.

All pledge levels will be available in both English and French. You’ll be able to choose the language of your game during the pledge manager phase, after the campaign.
Tous les niveaux de pledge seront disponibles en français et en anglais. Vous pourrez choisir votre langue lors de la phase de pledge manager, à l'issue de la campagne. Attention cependant : seules les règles et les scénarios seront traduits en français. Le reste du matériel contient relativement peu de texte : le nom des cartes d'équipement et le nom des personnages resteront en anglais. Par exemple, Gueule d'Argile s’appellera Clayface.
