Asmodee subsidiary Fantasy Flight offers fans first look at Marvel D.A.G.G.E.R.

Published on: 4th April 2023

Fantasy Flight Games’ Marvel D.A.G.G.E.R. board game is suitable for 1-5 players who must attempt to overcome the dangers posed by ‘the nemesis’.

Marvel D.A.G.G.E.R.Fantasy Flight Games presents Marvel D.A.G.G.E.R., a new cooperative board game featuring iconic heroes and villains from Marvel comics.

In this game for 1-5 players, participants jump into the role of one of 20 heroes and race across the globe to complete missions, battle enemies and square off for the final showdown against the nemesis. Earth is in danger, nefarious forces threaten the world, and only a small team of heroes can come to the rescue. With the enemy’s minions closing in and innocents in peril, the heroes must work together to stop the villain’s plans and save the world in time.

During each game, players wield different heroic aspects to match their ideal playstyle, then pull off strategic combos with fellow heroes and wait for the perfect moment to unleash their ultimate ability. Heroes include familiar favourites such as Spider-Man, Black Widow and Daredevil.

Various elements make D.A.G.G.E.R. highly re-playable and no two games are the same. D.A.G.G.E.R. stands for ‘Defense Alliance for Global and Galactic Emergency Response’ and the ‘Alliance’ and ‘Emergency Response’ elements are the driving force behind the game.

Marvel D.A.G.G.E.R.There are two types of combo tokens in Marvel D.A.G.G.E.R.: empowered tokens and primed tokens. When a hero becomes ’empowered, they can discard their empowered token to add one success to any attribute test they perform. When an enemy is ‘primed’, an attacking hero can remove a primed token from them to add one success to the attack result (which means more damage dealt). These are just the most basic uses for these tokens – the heroes can do a lot more.

As players and their fellow heroes race around the globe to solve crises (called ‘missions’ in-game), the nemesis will be traveling around the world to cause them. While heroes can attack the nemesis at any time, they can’t actually stop them until the final showdown, just stall them and stop them from achieving their goals.

Marvel D.A.G.G.E.R. is out in June.
