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.
Scythe is a pretty multifaceted game. It features several common game elements, such as engine building, territory control, and resource management. But it presents them in such a unique manner that simply calling out individual mechanisms hardly does it justice.
One of the coolest things about Marvel Dice Throne is just how well the game translates the powers and abilities of each hero to its system. Doctor Strange is my favorite superhero. So I was excited to see how he played, and I’m pretty happy with the result.
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.
