Experience the Unpredictable and Exciting World of One of the Year’s Most Anticipated Movies – Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel – in the New Hidden Identity Game from USAopoly®
CARLSBAD, Calif. – Feb. 19, 2019 – USAopoly® (The OP), the board game and puzzle publisher behind the best-selling party games Telestrations® and Blank Slate™, this week released Captain Marvel: Secret Skrulls, an all-new card game inspired by the highly anticipated feature film, Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel. Using the award-winning BANG! game mechanic, Captain Marvel: Secret Skrulls lets players assume the identities of characters from the upcoming theatrical release as they attempt to defend Earth in the intergalactic conflict between the Kree and the Skrulls.
“Captain Marvel: Secret Skrulls expertly blends BANG! and Captain Marvel together to create an immersive game centered around both secrecy and cooperation,” said Candace Brenner, Vice President of Marketing. “From our decades of experience with the Marvel license, we know how to adapt the iconic moments from the big screen to compelling tabletop game experiences for fans of all ages. With its gorgeous illustrations and engaging gameplay, Captain Marvel: Secret Skrulls is bound to become a new favorite among the MCU fandom and beyond.”
Captain Marvel: Secret Skrulls is a 30-minute social deduction card game where players must strategically decide whom to trust as they stand by their alliance against shape-shifting Skrulls. Designed for four to seven people, players take on the roles of Captain Marvel, her allies, Skrulls, or a Skrull Defector and then use logical reasoning, observations and player feedback to determine who is deceiving the group and prevent them from sabotaging Captain Marvel. The unique player roles are as follows:
- Captain Marvel: This player is made known to all and must protect everyone while staying alive.
- Allies: These hidden identities aim to aid Captain Marvel in staying alive and saving the world.
- Skrulls: These secret identities work to destroy Captain Marvel and her Allies.
- Skrull Defector: Having left the Skrulls, this person is neither an ally to the Skrulls nor Captain Marvel and must work independently to accomplish their own objective.
The hidden identity game is now available online and in-store at Target, ShopDisney.com and other select board game retailers in North America for $24.95 USD. Captain Marvel: Secret Skrulls is intended for players ages 8 and up. More information about the game can be found on the website: TheOP.games.
Captain Marvel: Secret Skrulls is The OP’s 25th game based in the Marvel Universe. The company’s portfolio of Marvel-licensed products and games includes: Thanos Rising: Avengers Infinity War, Marvel Codenames, Munchkin Marvel, Munchkin Just Deadpool, Deadpool vs The World, and Munchkin X-Men.
