Plaid Hat Games has announced an upcoming superhero card game for this Fall, although preview copies will be available at Gen Con next month. In Guardians, two or four players will construct various decks in order to lead their respective heroes against big bad villains. The game is for ages 13+, plays in around 30 minutes, and will carry an MSRP of $39.95.
From Plaid Hat:
Assemble the ultimate team and join the fight in Guardians, a game of super-powered battles for two or four players! The Guardians were once a network of legendary heroes that fought for peace and justice. They were influential in establishing InterGov, the world’s first global government. The Guardians chose to step aside so that InterGov could usher the world into a new age of peace and prosperity. Nearly three decades have passed, and new threats have emerged to challenge the peace these heroes fought for. A new generation of heroes must now rise and fight for the future!
In Guardians, players will choose and assemble a team of three unique heroes from the available roster of super-powered combatants. From there, players will gather each hero’s unique power and ultimate cards to form their own deck. The combinations are endless as you explore the strengths and abilities of each hero!
Once players have assembled their team of heroes, it’s time to take the fight to your opponent! Each game of Guardians will have players using their team of heroes to fight for control of a variety of unusual locations. Dominate the fight by playing powerful cards and knocking out enemy heroes, then unleash an Ultimate – a special attack that will radically change the state of the game.
It’s up to you to assemble the ultimate team in Guardians and lead them to victory. Every hero has their own unique strengths and abilities, and to win the battle you’ll need to find the most optimal strategy for your team. We’ll have plenty of previews soon covering everything from deck construction to the phases of play and of course the heroes themselves!
Guardians will be available from retailers and our own webstore in the fourth quarter of this year, but we’ll be having a special preview sale with limited quantities at GenCon 2018! Stop by and demo or pick up your own copy while supplies last!
