Marvel Themed Board Games for a Super Game Night
From comic book pages to the silver screen, the Marvel universe has exploded into a juggernaut of pop culture. Our favorite superheroes and vigilantes have enraptured generations of fans with their inspirational stories and action-packed adventures, which can also be enjoyed around the tabletop!
If you have a Marvel fan in the family or know someone who can’t get enough of their favorite superheroes, these Marvel-themed board games are sure to make you a game night hero!
Smash Up: Marvel
The heroes and villains of the Marvel Comics Universe are meeting on the tabletop for a gaming experience unlike any other! Smash Up: Marvel is the first licensed version of the award-winning shufflebuilding card game and features four hero and four villain factions from across the comics. Combine your favorites to create the ultimate team of supers and claim victory over your fellow Marvel fans.
This exciting edition of the humorous role-playing game is sure to entertain any Marvel fan with its unique artwork and varied difficulty. Players will assume the roles of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents and go head-to-head in an epic race to reach Level 10 first. Kick open doors to battle Marvel villains, collect iconic items, and recruit powerful allies to rack up points and propel yourself towards the win.
You may even choose to team up with other players and assist each other in difficult battles by combining your assets, but stay alert! They could always go behind your back and betray you if you become a threat to their progress. There can only be one winner, after all! Will it be you?
Opposing teams, S.H.I.E.L.D. and Hydra, compete to be the first to identify all of their team’s field agents in this super-powered edition of the hit social word game. Each team will have one director while the rest of the team plays as agents. Directors will use a key card to help their agents locate the Marvel heroes that belong to them from a 25 card grid. The first team to identify all of their cards first is the winner!
Deadpool vs The World
Seeing as how “The Merc with a Mouth” has officially been swinging swords and adding insult to injury for three decades, it’s only appropriate to have even more laughs at his expense with this hilarious, (im)mature card game that requires reveling in the anti-hero’s existential dread.
Featuring 100 custom illustrations of Deadpool in very strange and unsightly situations, players face off against their friends by filling in the blanks on Caption cards to provide the most outrageous explanations of the Merc with a Mouth’s predicaments. The player who best describes Deadpool’s compromising situations wins.
Marvel Collector’s Chess Set
Checkmate! The Marvel Collector’s Chess Set combines the ultimate battle for the fate of the universe with the classic two-player game. Players may represent either Heroes or Villains on a double-sided custom game board and strategize their way to victory using full color, hand-painted chess pieces of your favorite Marvel heroes and villains including Captain America, Thor, Ultron, and Thanos.
The first of the Rising games will send your family and friends into battle against “The Mad Titan” himself! Inspired by the events of Avengers: Infinity War, you and up three other players must defend the universe from Thanos and his henchmen by thwarting his plan to wipe out half of the population. Roll dice to recruit fellow heroes, take out villains, and overpower Thanos’ grip on the Infinity Gauntlet. If you defeat at least seven villains before he collects all six Infinity Stones, you win! However, if he completes his mission before you’ve overpowered his cohorts, Thanos will snap his fingers and you automatically lose the game.
The eye-grabbing Thanos centerpiece can also double as a creative project for the artists in your house! Grab those paintbrushes to add your own unique touches and make your Mad Titan stand out from the rest.
