Avengers Assemble Board Game

The great thing is, you don’t have to have seen the Avengers Assemble film to enjoy any of the Avengers games, whether they are board games or card games, and you don’t have to have watched any of the Marvel Universe films at all, but of course, if you haven’t seen the movies then you are missing out.

Avengers Assemble is the first outing for our favourite superheroes as a group. We have seen several of them in individual movies, but this is the first time they have come together to help save the universe. S.H.I.E.L.D. led by Nick Fury brings the gang together to stop Thor’s troublemaker brother Loki from enslaving all of humankind.

Playing the card game is easy, the instructions simple. There are three decks that are used in the Avengers Assemble game. The three decks are shared by both players. The first of these is the Foe Deck (the enemies), the second is the Plot Deck and the third is the Hero Deck.

The players use the hero cards to attempt to defeat the foes. The way that the player succeeds is if the hero card has a higher value than the Foe Meld. This is created by taking the total of the current Foe card in play and three cards from the Plot deck. The winner of the game is the first player that is able to defeat five foes in total.

Or why not play the Avengers Monopoly game? Played just like a standard monopoly game but with Marvels Avengers characters who collect power rather than money and property. It can be played with 2-6 players so the whole family can enjoy it. The characters you can play with are Iron Man, Hulk, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Thor and Captain America. A twist to the game is that you can team up with other players in order to defeat the villains while completing S.H.I.E.L.D. missions.
