    Hi there!

    I'm currently on a medical leave on my job due to a shoulder operation so right now I have lot of time for myself. Reading, watching tv series and movies, playing with my left hand Runeterrra and Mario Kart On Tour and since two weeks ago discovering Marvel Champions board game.

    For any of you that are not familiar with that MC is a LCG* by Fantasy Flight for one player that also allows play with 3 other friends. You fight against a boss (and differents encounter modules that you can add to change the game) that also has his own deck. There are 4 differents aspects (and the basic set) that allows you to play 4 differnt playstyles for every hero. With the base game you can build your own deck but every time you buy a hero (15 euros/10 dollars each) you also have new cards for one aspect so you can adapt your playstyle as you want.

    As I said the game is awesome playing with friends (enemy and sidequests escale with the number of players) but I'm currently playing alone and what a wonderful game is it. You can spend hours trying to find the best deck for each situation and, of course, each hero has its unique mechanic of play (for example, Iron Man should find in its decks differents tech parts of his armour in order to be more powerful, Dr. Strange has a side deck of 5 cards with differents invocations to play during the game, Antman goes bigger or smaller whenever he wants to play defensive or attack, etc...)

    But let's leave appart this "I want to talk you about the messias" post. This game rely a lot in differents decks. You can play aggresive with BlackPanther, build a deck for playing counterattacks against the enemy, playing very deffensive  or summoning allies at your side. It totally depens on your mood that day. On the web you can find different people trying decks from marvelcdb and watching guides and videoplays but... do you know any web like outofcards for that purpose? Something to see which cards you miss in your collection for having a good deck or guides to play against Hardcore Ultron, which are the new heroes or scenario packs to come, etc.... Maybe if some of you already know this game are agree with me that the community is real but exists under the radar. Reddit is a thing but sometimes it lacks on having a good base such as threads or too much disperse information. Is there any web like I desire somewhere? Could outofcards be the proper community for that?

    Feel free to ask me :)

    Here is a little breef video about Marvel Champions.

    * LCG means Living Card Game. The concept is the same as a TCG with one major difference: the packs of cards are not randomized. When a player purchases a pack for a LCG, they know exactly what cards they'll be getting.

    Doesn't look very cool to me either. What really confuses me is that Second Dinner is working on a Marvel game as well. Doesn't make much sense to give out the licenses to two competing studios, does it?

    I notice I am confused. Something I believe isn't true. How do I know what I think I know?

    Totally aggree. In fact the best ad that this game can have is the word of mouth marketing.

    That's my thought. For the moment this game is only a physic board game but seeing that Second Dinner is working on a Marvel game makes me wonder if they are working on this game due to their experience with card games. Seeing the mechanic is a pretty "simple" pve game without any restriction such as balance or something like that. Makes lot of sense for me.
