    Default Marvel United: X-Men

    Calling all tabletop fans!

    CoolMiniOrNot started a Kickstarter for their new game, Marvel United: X-Men.

    It's a "sequel" to the first Marvel United, which was based primarily on Avengers, Spider-Man, Guardians of the Galaxy, Defenders, etc. I got the first game and haven't played it yet, but it does look fun. Cute miniatures, LOTS of characters to choose from (She-HulK! Wasp! Nebula! Oh my!), and this X-Men version is no different.

    In fact, the first Kickstarter-exclusive revealed is none other than this fabulous furball!

    Anyone else interested in the game?

    The gameplay seems ok but good lord I dislike the art style. That bobblehead look is just not for me. I'll stick to Marvel Legendary.

It's as publishing businesses they need to evolve, not as content creators... Better to stick to what they are actually good at-creating content and IP.

    That Archangel of Death figure is actually nice. Not interested in the game, though.

    There have to be more characters right? Some of the major X-men aren’t listed. Rogue, iceman, nightcrawler, gambit... basically all my favorites

    Segregates Polaris to being defined by X-Factor because their nostalgia says so, not touching it.

    Yes, the quasi-chibi thing isn't doing a lot for me. I'm interested enough to keep an eye on it, though.

    I'm more "Really?" that Firestar got a nod.

    I think it's highly likely that the heavy hitters are going to be in add on boxes like the A-Listers from the Avengers/MCU (there were Thor, Spider-Man, Black Panther, and Guardians specific expansion boxes). The stretch goals were the mostly lesser known characters.

    I didn't back the first kickstarter but I bought the Core box at retail and picked up the Black Panther expansion through eBay. It doesn't look like much, but it's actually a pretty fun game. It's also a great game if you have friends/family that aren't big game players. It's pretty light but with enough strategy to keep people who play games like this interested.

    Themed add-ons - X-Force, New-Mutants, Excalibur, Alpha Flight, etc. - could be a lot of fun. Heck, they could do a whole box just around the Snikt family.
