GF9_WWE_Showdown_BoxGale Force Nine has provided some images and additional detail for the WWE board game that I reported on in February. WWE Superstar Showdown will indeed include six miniature figures, for wrestlers Daniel Bryan, Roman Reigns, John Cena, Big Show, Randy Orton and Big E. However, the company seems to have revised its plans somewhat. In contrast to what I was told at Toy Fair, Gale Force Nine now describes the product as “a game of exciting miniature combat driven by specialized card decks for each WWE Superstar.”

Still, individual matches can be linked together to form an event, stipulation cards can be played to introduce special rules, and superstars may improve between matches with the addition of bonus cards to their individual decks.
