CMON is the name of both a tabletop gaming studio and a publisher: they’re behind such titles as Zombicide, Blood Rage, The Others, Rising Sun, Massive Darkness, Arcadia Quest, Dark Age and Rum and Bones. Now they’re setting their ambitions on a certain Marvel property where the sound effect “SNIKT” is commonly heard.
Presenting Marvel United: X-Men, a fast-paced co-op game for up to five players. Multiple friends take on the roles of Charles Xavier’s various pupils while one player controls the supervillain they’re trying to stop. If you can’t make up your mind, there are also “antihero” roles with purple figurines for the morally ambiguous — they can fight for either side. Moves are controlled with cards, and some actions can be combined for a super-charged attack.
Marvel United is back, bringing the X-Men into this acclaimed fast-paced cooperative game. Build your team of mutant Heroes and join forces to thwart the master plan of the most powerful Villains in the universe. Now you can also choose to take direct control of a Super Villain, facing off against the other united Super Hero players! Simple rules, deep strategy, easy setup, quick playtime, variable difficulty, eye-catching artwork, and amazing character pieces, all united to bring you the most engaging Marvel play experience!
There is high interest in Marvel United: X-Men; the campaign has already earned over two million from a goal of just $300,000. You can join the crowd with a “Mutant Pledge” of $65 that earns one copy of the game, the exclusive Villain Team of Toad, Pyro and Blob, and all stretch goals. A higher “Apocalypse Pledge” of $100 includes all that plus the “Horsemen of the Apocalypse” expansion and an alternate “Mohawk” version of Storm.
The Marvel United: X-Men campaign ends May 5. The game itself is projected to be finished around this time next year.
