Attention readers! The world is in a scary state right now, many countries around the globe are instructing citizens to not leave their homes except for essential reasons. At the MCM Podcast we take this situation very seriously in our personal lives and wanted to provide a brief guide for how-to play Marvel Champions with friends even when not at the same table! Read this article or browse to find information about the method you want to try out. Disclaimer: First, we encourage you to buy a physical copy of Marvel Champions. There’s nothing anyone can do to support the company that makes this game better than purchasing the game and playing it. These are some alternatives to playing the game with friends, when a physical setting isn’t possible.

On February 25th, 2020 FFG released a new updated version of the Rules Reference Guide. You can find the official document here. This article will summarize some of the updates, clarifications and changes so you can know how this impacts your favorite marvel card game! Changes ranged from minor things, like clarification on when Setup abilities trigger to things as wild as how (defense) events are used! Read on to find out what’s new!

I’m going to lump things into one of two categories: minor clarifications, major clarifications, and major changes! This article is by no means all-inclusive but I will highlight the clarifications and changes that may change the way you play this great game!

Welcome to Episode 9 of Marvel Champions Monthly…

Join hosts: KennedyHawk, Crimson, and Lester as we discuss an arrange of topics including: recent news, a new deck garage primer, the latest RRG update, opinions on Wrecking Crew, and a recap on Dr. Strange spoilers.

This month we help Lester build a Black Panther – Aggression deck using some of the new cards from Thor’s pack! Will Crimson try out this deck or is it a Wakanda For-Never?

KennedyHawk here. I wanted to type up a deck-tech on one of the decks I’ve been running. Each week I’ll be posting a deck-tech or some other article to our Podbean site so be sure to follow us on Podbean or facebook to get the latest updates. This week’s article will focus on a Captain America / Leadership deck – that is NOT all about his allies! Instead, we will focus on Captain America’s awesome statline and ability: “I Can Do This All Day!”. Most people recognize this from the Captain America movies but it really embodies Cap’s spirit to give his most. The images used on this blog-post are from the Hall of Heroes website. Be sure to check out their site as it’s a top notch resource for the Marvel Champions LCG community! (Thanks HoH!)

Lester makes his triumphant return in this short issue 8.5. Spoiler warning we discuss a potential hero to be revealed by FFG next week!

Lester gives us his feedback on our last Deck Garage and we do some rules pop-quizes about status cards. Lester gives us his opinions on Black Widow since he missed out in Episode 8. Next month we’ll have all three hosts together in one issue again!

Join KennedyHawk and Crimson for a January issue of Marvel Champions Monthly. Lester was frozen in the North but we’ll get his comments later this month. In this episode we discuss recent Marvel Champions News, Recent Plays, Team Build a Deck, Argue about Indirect Damage and eventually discuss Black Widow spoilers!

Join hosts (KennedyHawk, Crimson, and Lester) as they go over the cards recently spoiled for the Thor hero pack. We discuss our excitement for the potential, maybe, hopefully, early release December 20th (Captain America, Ms. Marvel, and Green Goblin in the US), Thor Pack spoilers, and our favorite cards recently added to the spoilers from Cap and Ms Marvel’s packs! Who do you think is truly the Mightiest Avenger of All?
