|Funko Throw Down! Battle Game! Batman vs Joker packaging|
The Batcave Toy Room received this ultra cool new Batman game from Funko this past week to review and I've been bogged down battling dastardly villains all week, but now that they'll been turned over to Chief O'Hara I can get on with my Review.

Overall, the game is fun, but it does go fast, which the instructions suggest to not use the power coins at all and only use 2 dice for a longer game. At a price point of $29.99 the Battle Game fits in with other games of this nature. The sure collectability of the game itself could be enough to offset the price.
The packaging mentions future additional game pieces of Robin and Two-Face that I definitely would pick up and expand the playing of the game. I'm looking forward to a possible Nightwing and Harlequin (fingers crossed) too.
You can pick up one of these Funko marvels at retailers like Big Bad Toy Store and Entertainment Earth.
