MANILA — Even Darna and Lastikman, iconic superheroes from the Ravelo Komiks Universe, are helping ease the coronavirus crisis — through their respective card game.

On Thursday, Ravelo Komiks Universe — the ABS-CBN brand based on the characters of Mars Ravelo — announced its "Larong Atin" initiative in relation to local measures against the pandemic.

"Larong Atin," in partnership with tabletop gaming company Neutral Grounds, is hoping to help boost the production of COVID-19 test kits through the sales of the games "Darna at Ang Nawawalang Bato" and "Lastikman: Tagu-Taguan."

 

Forty percent of all proceeds will go the UP Medical Foundation until May 15.

"Darna at Ang Nawawalang Bato" is a deductive game where players look for the missing "puting bato," while "Lastikman: Tagu-Taguan" is a logic and dexerity game ideal for families, according to Neutral Grounds.

The two card games belong to a wide range of merchandise under the Ravelo Komiks Universe, which also includes the upcoming Star Cinema adaptation of "Darna."
