I picked up the long-awaited Marvel Heroscape this weekend. I don't have time to go into my whole history as a "gamer," but one of these days I'll tell you about my days in the high-pressure northeast Magic: The Gathering tourney circuit. My gaming is pretty much behind me now that I have a full-time job plus a writing career plus a family, but when games like Marvel Heroscape come along, I get a chance to jump back into the gaming arena by CRUSHING my three-year-old daughter and six-year-old son. We've only played the game once so far, but the Captain America/Spider-Man team controlled by my daughter was no match for the Abomination/Sillver Surfer combo. Unfortunately for us, that combo was controlled by my son, who soundly defeated both my daughter and I (with my Doctor Doom/Iron Man duo of death). Even with the early loss of the Abomination, my son was able to ride the Silver Surfer to victory.
This game is a lot of fun.
