There’s been no cinematic event in the 21st century more satisfying or more impressive than the feat that Marvel pulled off in the 23 movies culminating in Avengers: End Game. It was equal parts thrilling and heartbreaking. Now that’s it over, we get our fix from the comics and by telling our own stories of the Marvel universe. Thankfully, there are plenty of Avengers games to help us do that.
One Marvel Avengers game that recently caught our eye is Infinity Gauntlet: A Love Letter Game. The gameplay and story are pretty straightforward. The fate of the universe is at stake and Thanos is hell-bent on collecting the Infinity Stones. So, you know, no biggie – just the highest stakes you’ve ever played for.
The Marvel Avengers game is set in the universe you’ve come to love with the characters who’ve never failed to save the day in both the comic books and movies. We’re talking some of the best heroes mythology has to offer including Spider-Man, Iron Man, Thor and Scarlet Witch. It differs from other Avengers games in that it’s based on the bestselling card game, Love Letter, but with a unique one-versus-many twist.
Now, as one of the best Avengers games out there, it would only make sense that you would be thrown into the chaos of trying to save the world from the Mad Titan, Thanos, or have the option of playing as the big baddie yourself. Ok, here’s how it plays out:
One player assumes the role of Thanos. The rest of the 1 to 5 players suit up as an iconic Avenger. Turn by turn, the heroes try to knock Thanos’s life down to zero. Every blow carries with it the fate of the universe as we know it. Thanos is after the Infinity Stones and that means the heroes better stop him before he collects all of them. Once he does it’s SNAP! and half the universe is gone. You don’t need that kind of destruction on your conscience.
Just like the original Love Letter game, players go around the table, taking turns drawing and play their card. Each card gets you closer to defeating Thanos or, if you’re playing the Mad Titan, closer to snapping half the universe out of existence. To make things harder, Thanos is drawing from his deck of minions and the Infinity Stones, with the “unfair” advantage of playing a two-card hand instead of one. Good luck!
