Boosterrific.com welcomes you to the first day of Mayfairstivus, an 8-day celebration of Mayfair Games' DC Heroes Role-Playing Game from the 1980s. (Before you ask: yes, the timing of Myfairstivus to coincide with Hanukkah is entirely intentional.)
The DC Heroes Role-Playing Game was first released in 1985. The game proved popular, and a second, expanded edition was printed in 1989 that incorporated changes to the DC Universe following the Crisis on Infinite Earths. This second edition added significantly to the rules of play as well as updating the pre-constructed licensed characters, including Booster Gold who received his own "illustrated character card" as one of the 75 included in the second edition box set.
As Mayfair Games changed ownership over the years, the rights to the game have become a tangled mess, harder to unravel than Hawkman continuity. While the game may be lost to time, it is certainly not forgotten. We will be exploring Booster Gold's role within the game in coming days during this grand Mayfairstivus holiday!
