Avengers: Infinity War game brings the Thanos fight to you
Marvel and USAopoly, Inc. have a new addition to game night.
Thanos Rising: Avengers Infinity War is a new collaborative game that’s pegged to the latest Avengers film, hitting theaters on April 27. With all of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes (plus the Guardians of the Galaxy) working together to battle Thanos, the goal is for players to team up with dice and cards in hand to bring down the “Mad Titan,” as shown in EW’s exclusive photos.
The game is designed for two to four players, both fledgling and expert fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Thanos was first spotted in the post-credits scene from 2012’s The Avengers and has since been a shadowy force in the movies. His main goal has been to collect all six Infinity Stones (the “Mind Stone” on Vision’s head, the “Time Stone” in Doctor Strange’s amulet, the “Space Stone” that is the Tesseract, etc.), and he’s launching a full-scale invasion of Earth in Avengers: Infinity War to finish his mission.
There are 190 total components to the game, including six Infinity Stones, 42 cards (heroes, villains, and ships), four deployment tokens (denoting the Avengers, Wakanda, Kamar-Taj, and the Nova Corps.), 17 tooled die, and the game itself, which is comprised of larger cards for the six Infinity Stones and the Infinity Gauntlet.
Iron Man, Captain America, Rocket Raccoon, Black Widow, Black Panther, Hulk, Gamora, and Doctor Strange are some of the cards in the deck, as are villains like Cull Obsidian and an Outrider general (those multi-limbed creepos attacking Wakanda in the Infinity War movie trailer).
A 120 mm figure of Thanos himself towers over the set as players use the dice and cards to collect characters, build upon their skills, and improve their allies.
Thanos Rising will retail for $49.95 and debut sometime this spring.
