OverviewOverview

Marvel Battleworld is a battle game where you are Marvel heroes fighting to save the world from evil. You play by rolling dice and using special abilities to defeat enemies. It is part superhero figure collection, part dice rolling battle game, where you must combine good choices with lucky dice rolls to win.

You play as a Marvel superhero, fighting an ever growing army of enemies. You need to combine a good choice of hero with the right enemy to battle and some lucky dice rolls to win. You choose a Superhero figure and matching Vital Stats card, then roll to determine your attack hoping to be higher than your enemies defence. Do this three times and you win that battle or your opponent wins.

As you progress, more enemies appear so you must work quickly and use your hero's abilities wisely. Win the special Thanos battles and you can add new heroes from your collection to get more attacks and more abilities at your disposal.

The result is a game that is part battle, part superhero figure collection. The more figures you collect, the more options for play you have. It is a simple to play game, which makes it very accessible for younger players.
