Fantasy Flight Games has been showcasing all of the awesome stuff that is coming your way over the next year or so. First, and most important, is the epic Marvel Champions LCG which has you playing as superheroes tackling dangerous villains.

Marvel Champions - FFG

Marvel Champions: The Card Game is going to have you playing as a team of heroes going up against a particular villain who is looking to bring their schemes to fruition. In some of the demo games, they played a team of Spider-Man, Iron Man and Black Panther were facing down Rhino as he smashed his way into a S.H.I.E.L.D facility.

Marvel Champions Characters - FFG

As a fully cooperative game, your focus is to bring down your villain whilst also looking to stop the villain either taking your team down or completing their schemes. The game also scales up from one to four players so the villains you'll be facing get more health dependant on the number of you sitting down at the table.

Much like with other LCGs (living card games) from Fantasy Flight, each hero comes with their own deck of cards which is full of upgrades, support, event and more which are focused towards your particular character.

One of the cool things about the game is that you can either play as the superhero version of yourself (for example Iron Man) or as your alter egos like Stark or Peter Parker. This determines how the villain will act against you when they get stuck into the fighting.

The core set for the game is a bit of a departure from existing cooperative LCG sets by them. Instead of just focusing on two-players it is fully set up for four players right out of the gate.

This seems like a really fun and exciting dive into the Marvel universe from Fantasy Flight Games and really, it seems about time that something like this came out from the guys at Fantasy Flight Games. If you're interested in gameplay you can see a full run-through of the game thanks to Team Covenant...

This seems fun, quick and exciting, just what you'd want from a Marvel-based game.

Gaming Mats

To support the release of the core set later this year the team at Fantasy Flight Games has also put together a series of different mats for players starting with the big gaming mat which helps you set up the game.

This is then built on by a range of hero-based mats that you can use to suit your preferred hero. You have Black Panther, She-Hulk, Spider-Man, Iron Man and Captain Marvel to choose from right off the bat.

Spider-Man Mat - FFG

I love the artwork that they have chosen for the characters, drawn right from the comic books, and the backgrounds look suitably clean so that you can read cards nice and easily. I am very excited about this and can't wait to see more about the game in the coming months.

I love cooperative games and I love Marvel so this is a perfect combination.

What do you think?
