Its time again to look at the newest 2 player starter set for Dice masters. Marvel Civil War. These two player sets are a great way to get into the game for 2 people, or to grab a good solid force for a great price for established players.
My introduction to Dice Masters happened with the first Dungeons and Dragons starter set Battle for Faerun, and I was hooked, to the point where I looked at the super hero sets normally not having been a fan of superhero's but again being converted by the likes of the DC War of Light set featuring the Lantern corp, The Amazing Spiderman, or DCs Worlds Finest with the likes of Batman and Superman in them, and another set for Dungeons & Dragons with the Faerun under Siege 2 player starter set . The fact all of these sets can battle against each other is fantastic, have a look at a battle report of The Amazing Spiderman set vs Dungeons and Dragons Battle for Faerun.
The game is fun, simple to play, plays fast, and is easily transportable and with so many sets and boosters available has almost limitless deck building options with a theme to suit everyone.
So lets take a look at the goodies and cards that you get and see if they are any good...........
You get 8 characters in the starter set. Each of those have 3 different variants, which may have differing abilities and costs providing you more options for tailoring your list to your choice of play style. Each character has 2 dice in the set that you can then purchase in game for energy costs to field your force, and start laying the smack down.
She Hulk can help you by blocking 2 attackers or perhaps you prefer overcrush where her damage goes through the blocker, what's left hits the player. She's a strong dice, and good in attack and defence.
Black Widow can knock out opposing dice when she is field, or deal damage, shes very good to have around as she is so cheap to hire.
My favourite art, and dice of the pack we have Captain America. Each of them let you spin him up one level each turn he is out, and with resistance you can either damage your opponent when you have a character KOd or gain a life.
Iron Man again comes in two forms, and with enlistment he can force you to get rid of other character, and you lose attack value when you block, or a version if fielded with the burst gives a character you control an extra 2 defence.
Another great set, its well balanced 2 player mode, or you can use this to form a full deck for yourself to take up against a friend. Well worth grabbing to add your Dice Masters collection, and mixing in with others, im sure Captain America could get some dragon or Ork recruits to help him out.
My favourite is wasp. and black widow..... I like their pictures. They may get into my Dragons deck. maybe. The dice bags look cool, Captain America is daddies favourite from this one, but I like Iron man more. The game is not hard to play and rolling dice is always fun.
