Arkham Asylum Expansion details

In Arkham Asylum, violent and criminally insane villains are locked away from Gotham's citizens in specially constructed cells. But often, these villains break free and it becomes Batman's job to bring them back to the asylum before their darkest whims are realized.

And, as is often the case, the Joker seems to be missing. Chances are he can be found in Jokerland, an abandoned fun fair the Clown Prince of Crime converted into his own playground. Here, attractions are functional, but from a mad man's point of view, and they aren’t really fun in any conventional sense.

This expansion includes two game boards: Arkham Asylum and Jokerland, coming with three scenarios each. Jokerland will include various attractions, shaped as double-sided overlays, which provide a lot of replayability, as the combination of attractions change with each scenario. These attractions offer unique atmospheres and terrain types that change the way you navigate the map. Of course, you can’t imagine an expansion like this without thinking about the villains. This box is absolutely brimming with bad guys and you won’t find a single hero among them. Within you will find a horrific faceless version of the Joker, as well as the Mad Hatter and his inseparable sidekicks, the Tweedle brothers.

Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum:

These two brutes are so closely connected that they function together as a double tile. This tile will be slightly more costly to activate but allows the villain to play two commanders at once. As you may know, these two are not very smart, but they sure know how to punch, and are good at protecting their master or the troops around them. They are a real pain for the heroes, but once one of them has been neutralized, the tile will cost the same price and offer only half the potential.

Joker Mister Joe:

It is best to target this frightening freak from a distance, for he is a formidable foe up close, making it impossible for most heroes to harm him when sharing his zone.

It is wise to keep a close eye on this fined, for if he catches you while you’re busy with another villain, you’re as good as dead and will become a new scar on his flesh.

      Yes... Now that I read this it confirms all I had thought since beginning, maybe we should have tried to make them change Clayface Joker for titan Joker... but well, I guess only problem could be the name and he has to be pretty much like titan joker, or... well, at let's see, monolith claims to have thought everything, let's hope to be surprised with why is he "clayface"

      Warning! Spoilers if you havent played any of the Arkham games!!!

      I could be wrong, but I think "Clayface Joker" is actually supposed to be "Titan Joker" from the first Arkham videogame, where Joker gets his hands on Bane's Titan Formula, and the result is a Joker thats as big and bad as Bane. In the second Arkham game, Joker has Clayface pretend to be him to trick Batman, among others. My guess is that this may have lead to some confusion. The "Clayface Joker" from the videogame just paraded around as a regular sized Joker, never a titan sized Joker (not that he couldn't have, it just served no purpose). When you discover the secret in game, Clayface Joker just turns into regular clayface (no point in hiding who he is now).

      I'm not aware of Clayface having significantly impersonated Joker in the comics. I just did a Google search to try and find info, but all that came up was Arkham Knight stuff. Weird.

      @MONOLITH… Will the rules from the expansion translate in GERMAN??????

    5. Kaladin on

      Is Joker Clayface a big deal in the comics? It just seemed like an odd choice for a mini. I remember claycface imitating Joker in the Arkham games, but that's about it.

    6. Eduardo Guimarães on

      I think The Joker Clayface tile should invert the name. It's really Clayface there, so his name should come first. Maybe even Clayface and below "as Joker" ....

    7. Kaladin on

      Why does the tile say Jervis Tetch instead of the Mad Hatter. He seems to be the only villain who is not going by his alias

      I really dislike the Joker Clayface pose. I think it's lifted leg is too high and looks less like he wants to smash and more like he's auditioning for the ballet.

    9. Ed Erdelac on

      Guh. I think I'm only gonna get one expansion at the most....gonna be tough to choose between this and Wayne Manor. I really want Strange and the Hatter....but also Alfred.

      Dumfree and Deever Tweed are not brothers, but cousins.

      Why is the Mad Hatter listed under his civilian identity? :P

      @Craig Kearns - That actually makes too much sense :D Thanks for clearing it up.

      Waouw! Extension mille fois plus sexy que celle du manoir! Et la map de l'asylum me fait penser à la configuration de la map Conan des souterrains de Stygie. Zones réduites, peu de lignes de vue... idéal pour des scénarii d'escarmouches! L'autre map du coup me botte moins. A voir...
      Sinon, bravo pour cette extension qui fait vraiment envie. Et puis BRAVO tout court et COCORICO. Bravo Fred. Tes projets déboitent (sans jeux de mots). Longue vie à Monolith par Crom! ;)

    15. Craig Kearns on

      @Quoc Diep - Pretty sure you place the attraction tiles on the huts.

      Very cool.

      very impressive keep up the great work

      Didn't Zsasz only have 4 marks on his forehead, saving the 5th for Bats?

    20. Eduardo Guimarães on

      Really strange that you have prof. Pyg and don't have dollotroms. Perhaps understandable if he's locked up in arkham asylum, but...

      Still can't believe you are doing Pyg.

      Hopefully perhaps the booths/huts on the Joker Land map will be opened up so you can see what's inside each booth? It is very dull looking at a tin roof covering 1/4 of the map.

      These close ups really show how fantastic these miniatures are all sculpted. Well done!

      Impressed they went with the good Hugo Strange.
