2. The #MarvelChampionsLCG serves up the most engaging, player-friendly, cooperative tabletop experience. The moment-to-moment mechanics and the superhero theme are locked in dialogue with one another, which makes every gameplay moment dynamic and satisfying.
4. I haven't played much #KeyForge this year, but I remain tuned in and totally fascinated with its wrangling of random/procedural design into an engaging head-to-head tabletop experience. That game still seems centered around discovery, which is remarkable.
Got 3-player #MarvelChampionsLCG to the table yesterday. It was a solid win against standard Rhino, but more notably, the game stuck the landing with the first-time players who are one orbit out from the core audience. (The other players are game enthusiasts but not card game grinders; Marvel appreciators, but not superfans.)

More #MarvelChampionsLCG diaries: Won a fun session playing She-Hulk aggression against expert Rhino!
Flipping between She-Hulk and Jennifer Walters is rewarding and necessary―she needs to be in alter-ego to thwart efficiently, but she's rewarded for becoming She-Hulk with a free two damage on flip.
Comic-wise, the oft-recommended She-Hulk run by Dan Slott adds so much dimensionality and really made me a fan!
More #MarvelChampionsLCG diaries: Battled standard Klaw and won as Black Panther running the leadership aspect! (I had previously lost while running Black Panther protection.)
A bonus: My partner joined me, easily cottoned on to the rules, and we ended up enjoying the scenario together!
Second solo play of #MarvelChampionsLCG under my belt, this time as Black Panther against Rhino. (I've been catching up on the groundbreaking Coates/Stelfreeze run of Black Panther and can't get enough!)
The game really does continue to impress me. It's a fun story-puzzle at exactly the right pace.
Just played a first game of #MarvelChampionsLCG! It's fun, thematic, and satiating for a card game aficionado.
For those of you who use foam to transport your various minis, might I suggest never ordering anything from Battlefoam again? they can take their precious historical accuracy and shove it.
Did a solo test of Unmatched: Battle of Legends Vol. 1 and REALLY enjoyed it! I think it's going to be a long-term favorite and I can't wait to introduce people to it.
It's like an excellent croissant—the careful layering makes it so satisfying and yet impossibly airy. They distributed the design weight so, so well.
I made a tool for KeyForge that translates decklists!
If your playing KeyForge with players who prefer a different language for the game than you (or at international tournments, here is a little tool I made that can help you reading each others decklists:
Just paste a master vault link and press the button to generate a 7 language printout!
Played some #KeyForge Age of Ascension last night against another dad with young kids. I'm happy to report that it continues to provide reliably interesting card game challenges while asking very little of the players apart from sitting down to play.
We both have other games we find more interesting (Netrunner, Warmachine, Star Wars: Destiny, among others) but it's #KeyForge that hits the table.
