Description

Marvel: Crisis Protocol takes the Marvel Universe into the skirmish mini game realm. Unlike other Marvel games Crisis Protocol pits itself as a proper tabletop game and opening the box presents you with a wedge of plastic sprues that you must snip the character minis out of and then glue them together. The advantage of this style of miniature is an increased level of detail that is possible. However do be warned that some assembly is required!

The work is worth it though as these minis look amazing and paint up a treat! Also included in the set is scenery which is not just window dressing. Cars and other scenery can be used as weapons by the super powered combatants, picked up, thrown and of course destroyed.

Games can be played in a few ways. When learning the game you can leave out some of the tactic cards and just slug it out. Each character plays differently and how you would expect. Hulk is a physical beast but a big target. Spiderman can utilise his webs to pick up and hurl scenery and so on. This means your strategy comes down to learning your opponents strengths and weaknesses as well as your own.

You can play on any 3ft by 3ft surface, though a playmat and extra scenery (official or home brewed) can help with immersion. Set up involves choosing your characters for your squad, and setting up the map and selecting missions. There is no deck building involved, rather you are choosing characters based on their unique powers.

Tactic cards add another layer of depth here too. Gameplay revolves around measuring sticks and dice. The measuring sticks are plastic and some of them pivot too for ease of use around corners and so on. The included dice have the exploding dice mechanic where a critical hit not only hits but also allows you a reroll.

Power is very interesting as getting attacked builds your power level which you can then use to drive your retaliation. This encourages players to get stuck in and take a few hits in order to build up some power.

Angela and Enchantress bring two more Asgardians to the the fray! Enchantress is known for her powerful magic and charms, and Angela is the firstborn of Odin and Freyja. Angela’s travels have led her to strike out on her own and join the Guardians of the Galaxy in her fight against evil. This expansion to the base game includes all the cards and tokens needed.
