I wanted to explore some different areas of design space for this game so I thought a fun way to do so would be to design myself as a playable character. The idea behind these cards, thematically, is that I have no superpowers and weak stats.
On the 20th of December, FFG gave to me: three packs-of-champions, two villain-scenarios and a week-and-a-half to play it all. I really lucked out this year. I have a subscription through Team Covenant for all the Marvel Champions product types and I received Captain America, Ms. Marvel, and the Green Goblin expansions on Saturday, December 21st. I was off work from December 23rd until January 2nd. I spent a week of that time in St. Augustine, Florida, at my in-laws home where it's generally a pretty laid-back, lazy time. As of the time of this writing, I have played quite a bit of Champions.
I don't know why, but lately I have been discussing and participating in a lot of different methods to determine one's personality type. I thought I should apply it to this game. The idea is that you will start with knowledge about your own personality through one or more of these categories and you can click through to find out which hero from the Core Set and announced expansions (currently through Thor) that you most closely align with.
This subject has been in my head for a long time and the recent changes to the Fantasy Flight Games Upcoming Page has made me want to finally sit down and write about it.
I received my copy through the mail on Friday, November 1st, thanks to Team Covenant.
There has been lots of speculation online about what heroes people are excited to see released for the game, and I have realized that I do not have an obvious favorite superhero that I am waiting on.
A recent article from FFG mentions that the October 29th edition of FFG Live will celebrate the "impending release" of Marvel Champions. This certainly makes it sound like the game will come out in the first week of November rather than sometime in October as was originally stated. So, how do we survive at least another 3-4 weeks before the game releases?
