The game, focusing on a cooperative experience for one-to-four players, has you working together to try and stop the schemes of a nefarious villain. One of the core aspects of the game is that each character comes with their preferred set-up but you can take things beyond that and deckbuild to your heart's content, changing things up to make your perfect set of heroes.

As well as the Core Game which is going to be coming at the start of November you'll also find follow-ups in the form of Hero Packs for Captain America and Ms. Marvel plus a Scenario Pack for The Green Goblin too.

However, one of the good things about a cooperative card game is that there's no 'meta' to keep up with. You don't have to buy everything immediately to feel like you're keeping up with the game. This is one of the reasons I'm a big fan of their other cooperative games like The Lord Of The Rings and Arkham Horror.

It also engenders a sense of group buying too. Maybe you don't particularly want to pick up the Rocket Racoon set but your friend might, so they could step out and pick that up so when they come to the tabletop they have their own hero to play. This is made all the more of an option since the Hero Packs come with a pre-set deck which is totally ready to go.
