THEME TEAM: Mystical Machine Gun

As regular readers of this blog (I know you’re out there – thanks for your support) may have noticed, my output has dropped off a lot over the past few months (life reasons, let’s not get into it here), and I may be ever so slightly, the teeniest smidge behind on character summary articles. To…

Year 1 Community Poll Results

In early November I sent out into the community ether a blog post with 20 questions pertaining to year 1 of the game, and gave readers the chance to vote on their favourite things. After just over a month of the polls being open, the results are in. For those of you who didn’t see…

Year 1 Community Poll

So here we are, year 1’s releases of MCP have wrapped up with the Criminal Syndicate and year 2 approaches, bringing with it X-Men goodness and who knows what else. I thought that it would be interesting to send out a poll to see what the community has been enjoying from the game over the…

TEAM TACTICS TALK: Rocket Boots?!

Thanks to the release of the Star-Lord pack we have some shiny new cards to play with. In this article I would like to talk about Rocket Boots?! as this is an interesting card. Upon first read you may just pass Rocket Boots?! off as a card which you will never use. Why risk stagger…

RULES TALK – How to Fight Right

Although this game is won and lost on victory points which are gained through the control of objectives, combat is still a big part of it all. Indeed, wipe out your opponents team and you will claim instant victory, although this is a difficult thing to accomplish. Given that combat is such a big deal…

AFFILIATION DISCUSSION: Cabal

Loki cometh! The last member of the current Cabal team is here and as such we can now take a good look at how the Cabal team works together. We have 7 characters and a total of 27 points to choose from. So how do the Cabal team members work together, what are the strengths…

RULES TALK – Throwing Me, Throwing You

Ahaaaaaaaaa! A little something for all you ABBA and Alan Partridge fans out there. Yes people, it’s time to talk about throwing. Throwing is a huge part of Crisis Protocol and can be used to great effect to get past character defences and chip away at stamaina. If it’s not glued to the board, get…

TEAM TACTICS TALK: Doomed Prophecy

With the recent release of the Asgardians and the Vision/Winter Soldier pack (not that this has made it’s way to the shores of Old Blighty yet alas) we have had a glut of new team tactics cards made available to us. In this article I would like to talk about Doomed Prophecy as this looks…

AFFILIATION DISCUSSION: Avengers

Now that Thor and Vision are upon us we can get a good idea of what the Avengers affiliation as a whole can do. Given how huge a team The Avengers are it is entirely possible that the team card will be updated in the future to include such characters as Squirrel Girl, Ms. Marvel…

CRISIS TALK – MYSTIC WAKANDAN HERBS: FACT OR FICTION

The Mystic Wakandan Herbs extraction crisis card comes in the Black Panther/Killmonger expansion, and the reason I would like to talk about it first is very simple – I absolutely love playing it! So, let’s dive in and see what is involved in playing this extraction objective, what characters work well with it, and what…
