We've got a new featured location in Marvel Snap and it's Muir Island!
- Muir Island - After each turn, give cards here +1 Power.
Due to the ongoing Power boost effect of this location players will want to play cards on it as early as possible to get as many +1 Power boosts as they can. If you're going to be playing for the next few days, sorry folks who haven't yet been invited into beta or don't live in the Philippines, you might want to put Quicksilver and Domino in your deck to ensure you always have something to play at Muir Island. Alternately, you could include one of the Guardians of the Galaxy, to take advantage of your opponent's desire to play there early and often.
On Reveal: If your opponent played a card here this turn, +2 Power.
What Are Hot Locations in Marvel Snap?
There are two different types of location events in Marvel Snap.
- Sunday's hot location that appears more frequently only for that day.
- Wednesday's featured location that appears more frequently for a couple of days.
This helps pave way for new deckbuilding strategies as you may want to be playing something else should the bonus better benefit cards you aren't playing with. For example, we've seen this previously with the featured location, Onslaught's Citadel, which synergized very well with Iron Man.
With the Marvel Snap beta, it looks like sometimes we might be seeing older locations featured as hot, likely due to testing. This isn't the way that it will always work though because as announced in the developer livestream, Marvel Snap will be getting a brand new location every week and it will be considered hot when it is added.
What do you think of Muir Island? Have your own ideas for taking advantage of the hot location? Let us know in the comments below!
I wanna play also :(
Time for the obligatory question: Is there any news about this game’s availability opening up? Since it’s publicly released for the Philippines now, I assume there’s no reason to wait much longer. I don’t think they’ve said anything, though.
