Storm's lightning will strike twice for Wizards of the Coast, because the X-Men Trading Card Game is already a hit. If you're looking for the ultimate synergy between film, comics, gaming, and collecting, the X marks the spot. The game contains a full-size comic book exclusive to this starter set. Also included are rules, dice, and X-Men card decks for game play on the included paper playmat. One premium exhibition-only collector card adds appeal for serious collectors.
The object of the X-Men Trading Card Game is to eliminate two villains, or to be the last player with X-Men standing. You must roll the dice to activate the various Energy, Fighting, and X factors on the character cards. The game is elaborate, intense, and aggressively fun. Whether you are a beginner or you supplement the game with booster packs (ranging in rarity from "Common" to "Holo-Rare"), the action heats up faster than Cyclops's visor.
