Workmanlike but fun - perhaps the best description of both this game and the MCU.

I agree, Thanos is fun, but not remarkable. I did enjoy it more than Doctor Who: Time if the Daleks. I do think it is overpriced. I wouldn’t pay more that $25 for it.

Sounds like it will be a stupid price in the UK then so I probably won't even consider buying it for a year or so when all the unsold stock goes in the fire sales (just like Risk: Star Wars can now be found here for under £20 when it came out at £48).

Mike - if you didn't have a couple of little'uns to play with would this get many replays in your groups, and same question if someone wasn't a MCU historian or fan ?

Uba - would it get many replays in your groups ?

@Southernman

Yeah, it would get played as like a King of Tokyo alternative. If our main game ends early we will pull out a short easy game to end the night, and all the dudes I play with are into Marvel. I’m like you. I’ll wait and see if it ends up on clearance.

This game looks perfect for my kids, especially the youngest who would struggle with most of the games I play with her brothers. It looks fun for what it is - and I'm not one to dismiss a well-executed dice game after playing crap like Dungeon Roll - but there's no way I'm dropping $50 on it.

Edit: MSRP is $50 but the price is more like $36-$37 online. Still too pricey for me.

Just had a look at what's in the box and there's bugger all, I doubt I'd even drop £20 ($25) on it.

I strongly agree with this sentiment.

The rent's just too damn high.

Excellent review and a fun read, thanks Michael. And in term of this:

Did you see the SIZE of that THANOS figure? It's Ginormous!

I don't know about that cover art. Seems like the game should be named "Thanos Constipated."
