Malts and Meeples: Marvel United Unboxing
It’s happening, it’s time for the massive Marvel United Unboxing! So many characters to checkout. So many boxes to open, and oh so many minis. Join me as I open up a ton of boxes and drink a beer.
Only one game today, and it’s Marvel United. But there is a lot of it to be unboxed. Next week I want to play a game of it, to be determined which of the expansions to show how it works on stream. I already played the base game two weeks ago, which you can see here. But the expansions add more to the game, more complexity and more challenges. Plus there are obviously a whole lot more villains.
Marvel United is a cooperative game where the players take on a villain. Each villain has their own schemes and plans for how they play, from a very simple villains like Red Skull to a more complex one like Ronan, you have a ton of different options to face. And you have a ton of different heroes to bring in. The base game can have you playing as Iron Man, Captain Marvel, Hulk, Ant-Man, Wasp, or more. Or you have different expansions with a ton of characters.
- Asgardian Expansion
- Black Panther Expansion
- Guardians of the Galaxy Expansion
- Spiderverse Expansion
- Infinity Saga Expansion
- Sinister Six Expansion
- Kickstarter Exclusive Characters
Next week I’ll be playing one of those expansions.
Local beer today from Steel Toe Brewing located in St. Louis Park MN. They have a line of beers that are all “Size” something. The stream drink was Size 7, an IPA. It is 7% ABV and 77 IBU, international bitterness units. The classification of an IPA comes from back when Britain was colonizing the world. IPA stands for India Pale Ale, and the reason it has it’s classification is that hops are a natural preservative. So when they wanted to get good old British beer to far away places, they’d load up the beer with hops in order to have it not go bad.
Let me know in the comments below what expansion you think I should play with next week.
