Mondo and Restoration Games have teamed up with Marvel to create several additions to their Unmatched line of miniatures dueling tabletop games planned for release beginning in the summer of 2021. Four new sets have been announced:
- Redemption Row – featuring Luke Cage, Ghost Rider, and Moon Knight
- Hell’s Kitchen – featuring Daredevil, Elektra, and Bullseye
- Teen Spirit – featuring Ms. Marvel, Squirrel Girl, and Cloak and Dagger
- For King and Country – featuring Black Widow, Black Panther, and Winter Soldier
Unmatched veteran artists Heather Vaughan, Oliver Barrett, and Ian O’Toole will be joined by Matt Taylor and Sanford Greene as the key illustrators for the line. The combined weight of their contributions to the worlds of gaming, comics, and entertainment is staggering; fans can expect each standalone title to be as visually impactful as they are mechanically sound.
Since debuting at Gen Con in August of 2019, Unmatched has released seven titles featuring 19 heroes sourced from myth, literature, television, and movies – presenting players with nearly two hundred possible 2-player battle scenarios. The upcoming Marvel editions will offer 66 possible in-world combat pairings and will feature unique gameplay additions building off the core game ruleset.
The next Wizkids‘ Marvel Dice Masters set is Civil War and as with each release the set’s promotional card has been revealed, Squirrel Girls: Kick Butts, Eat Nuts.
The card is a cheap cost 3 character die that is equally cheap to field. The card allows you to put a token on it at the end of your turn, and when you use a Global Ability you can take a token off and put out a Squirrel token, a 1A, 1D character into the field zone.
An absolutely amazing card that’s a must get and I’m sure will become a regular in tournament (and hell most) play.
Marvel Dice Masters: Civil War releases this May.
Wizkids continues to bring it’s previews of it’s upcoming Marvel Heroclix Captain America release. Up next is Squirrel Girl.
From their website:
At only 59 points Squirrel Girl definitely packs more than a rodent-sized wallop! An opening click of Stealth hides Squirrel Girl as she skulks through the branches of her favorite tree, before jumping into the fray with Leap/Climb.
Mid-dial Squirrel Girl picks up Incapacitate as she distracts and disarms her opponents with her bushy tail, while toward the end of her dial Squirrel Girl takes a bite out of crime with Blades/Claws/Fangs.
Combat Reflexes helps keep Squirrel Girl safe from danger as opponents will find themselves stymied by her incredible squirrel-like instincts, while Exploit Weakness allows her ample oppourtunity to serve justice to the unlikeliest of enemies!
That’s not all though, as Squirrel Girl is the one of several figures in the Captain America set to sport the new removable element feature! And what would Squirrel Girl be without her trusty woodland sidekicks? Squirrel Girl’sMonkey Joe Trait allows her to use Super Senses while Monkey Joe is attached to her base as a second pair of eyes helps her to avoid danger and confund her foes!
However, Squirrel Girl’s other Trait, Run, Monkey Joe, Run! allows Monkey Joe to take a more active role in the game as you literaly remove him from Squirrel Girl’s base! Once separated from Squirrel Girl, Monkey Joe possesses all of the stats and powers as listed on the back of Squirrel Girl’s character card (or simply print out a copy of Monkey Joe’s bystander token below).
The squirrelly goodness doesn’t end there though! Should the worst befall Monkey Joe and your opponent manages to K.O. him, you re-attach him to Squirrel Girl’s base, again allowing her access to Super Senses or another opportunity to unleash her allies upon your foes!
