MARVEL UNITED: X-MEN Lives On With Kickstarter, And It's Already Fully Funded
A new campaign for the Marvel United: X-Men board game has not only went live on Kickstarter, but it's already been fully funded! Get all the details and check out a trailer after the jump...
This may very well be one for the record books!
Spin Master Games and CMON have announced that Marvel United: X-Men, their new Kickstarter board game, is not only live, but that it fully funded its $300K goal within 10 minutes of the campaign launching! Marvel United: X-Men has raised over $1.6 million as of my writing this, and we're sure it will earn significantly more judging by the success of Marvel United and due in part to the amazing value backers will receive, even at the core box pledged, which is going for $65 US.
I know that I was eager to back it as soon as it went live, especially after having spent the weekend playing the earlier Marvel United, which I had backed last year. The quality of the figures and the mechanics of the game make it relatively easy to play and a lot of fun for both adults and the kiddos.
The $65 "Mutant Pledge" includes the core game, an exclusive villain team including Toad, Pyro, and Blob as well as all applicable stretch goals.
The $100 Apocalypse Pledge, which I highly recommend, costs $100 and includes everything from the "Mutant Pledge", plus The Horsemen of Apocalypse expansion, and a mohawk-wearing Storm.
Those that missed out on the Marvel United Kickstarter are also in luck, as the "Ultimate Classic Bundle" is available with all of the exclusives for $220.
Check out the video below, and if you're interested in backing, head over to their Kickstarter campaign (CLICK HERE). With all sorts of promotions and add-ons (they announced an X-Men: First Class optimal buy for $30 just a few hours ago), the campaign is sure to keep growing. I have six boxes from the "All In" Marvel: United campaign that I haven't even opened yet!
Marvel United is back, bringing the X-Men into this acclaimed fast-paced cooperative game. Build your team of mutant Heroes and join forces to thwart the master plan of the most powerful Villains in the universe. Now you can also choose to take direct control of a Super Villain, facing off against the other united Super Hero players!
Simple rules, deep strategy, easy setup, quick playtime, variable difficulty, eye-catching artwork, and amazing character pieces, all united to bring you the most engaging Marvel play experience!
