True to the heroes they are based on, Captain Marvel can deliver heavy damage while Black Panther builds up kinetic energy to unleash in his own attacks. Much like other Marvel Dice Throne characters, the overall spirit of their abilities translates well to the Dice Throne Battle System.
Battlecrest is a head-to-head skirmish game where you use heroes to battle around a semi-randomized battlefield. The catch is, the game consists of 18 cards and fits in a wallet half the size of the one I carry around. Button Shy specializes in making wallet-sized games, and prior to Battlecrest, I’d never played one.
Horizons of Spirit Island is a smaller and more compact version of Spirit Island made to appeal to a larger crowd and onboard new players. Horizons is to Spirit Island what Jaws of the Lion is to Gloomhaven.
Hardspace Shipbreaker falls under the category of a game that essentially emulates a job that would be horrible in real life, but is for some reason fun to play. As a kid, adults could not fathom why I was playing Harvest Moon, a game about growing crops and taking care of farm animals. I had no explanation to give in return. I sometimes feel that way about Shipbreaker as well, and it’s literally my job to explain why I enjoy games.
