I'm busy this final week of the year, so I'm setting the site into low content mode and counting down the most-viewed posts of the past year.
The fifth most-viewed post of the year was on January 28, 2013.
At the time, we wondered if this sketch posted by RB Silva to Instagram was a precursor to a new Justice League title. It turned out that it was box artwork for the DC Deck-Building Game expansion Heroes Unite, and like Booster Gold himself, it was barely seen in 2013. (Though originally planned for a Christmas 2013 release, it now has an expected release date sometime in the first quarter of 2014.)
Number 4 tomorrow.

In the Boosterrific Forum last week, CDN updated us that there were new developments online about the DC Deck-Building Game expansion Heroes Unite. (The game was previously mentioned on January 28 and June 24.)
Thanks to the website of the game's publisher, cryptozoic.com, we now know that Booster Gold will be a playable character!
- Play as Shazam!, Hawkman, Red Tornado, Nightwing, Black Canary, Batgirl, or Booster Gold.
- Each Super Hero has a unique special ability that will open up different strategies to the player. Follow that strategy or break away with a plan of your own!
- Card combos, strategy, and fun abound in this game where every card is a well-known, fan-favorite card with amazing art. This is a standalone game, but also an expansion to the hit DC Comics Deck-building Game released in late 2012. Mix the two sets together for the ultimate showdown!
- Easy to learn, entertaining and engaging gameplay.
CDN points out that while RB Silva's art was used for the box, previously existing art appear to have been used for the cards themselves. "Even the games want Booster back in his preNu costume," he adds. For example, the Kevin Maguire alternate cover to Justice League: Generation Lost can be seen on the "Booster Gold" card. If pre-Flashpoint art was used, does that mean we'll be seeing Skeets? (IhopeIhopeIhope.)
Cryptozoic plans a fourth quarter 2013 release, so the game should be available for Christmas. I know what I want to see under my tree this year!
