    Marvel Champions: The Card Game – Captain America Review

    Captain America

    Marvel Champions has been getting a lot of buzz recently. Fantasy Flight Games (FFG) seem to be supporting their latest living card game with expansions and new card packs. As a huge fan of the game and the IP I am very excited about this. One of these new packs is Captain America hero pack which I will talk about in more detail here. If you want to read more about the base game then check out the review here.

    Captain America, the patriotic American hero, equipped with his iconic vibranium shield, he is ready to lead the fight against the Marvel Villains. The Captain America hero pack is a new playable hero that can be added in to the base game of Marvel Champions. Straight out of the pack is a pre-constructed deck with 15 hero cards, 17 Leadership aspect cards and 8 basic cards. As with the other Heroes Captain America comes with his own obligation and nemesis set. The pack also contains three identical additional cards for the other aspects in the game as well as three identical basic cards.

    Final Thoughts

    Captain America was never my favourite cinematic hero, that title goes to Iron Man. But I am loving playing the pre-constructed hero deck. It is so much fun and feels very thematic. Captain America also plays differently to the other heroes and FFG have continued to create unique feeling characters that are thematically tied to their cinematic counterpart.

    His Hero action allows players to discard a card from their hand to ready Captain America (once per round) allowing him to do double actions in a round. The Shield block card can negate all damage dealt by exhausting the card. And probably my favourite card in the whole game is Captain America's shield toss. This is a hero action (attack) which allows you to discard X cards from your hand to deal 4 damage to X enemies and return Captain America's shield (an upgrade card) to your hand. I just see myself throwing the shield, knocking out some enemies and the catching the shield ready to go again. Feels so good and very "Captain America".

    The Captain America hero pack is another great addition to the core game. The pre-constructed deck is great straight out of the pack but can also be used to deck build your own custom deck. To top it off it is a super fun deck to play with.

    Ordered the last Star Wars Armada releases on pre-order, Arrived on time and well packed, The usual good service from Zatu, Enjoying the models immensely. The Venator model is amazing and a good addition to the Republic in the game. Highly recommend both Zatu and the Star Wars Armada Clone wars releases.
