Gamorra coming to Marvel Champions

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the Gamora Hero Pack for Marvel Champions: The Card Game!

As a member of the Guardians of the Galaxy, Gamora dances into the scene with a deadly flurry in this expansion pack, which introduces Gamora as a brand-new playable hero, along with her fifteen signature cards. While she comes packaged with the Aggression aspect, Gamora is unique in that she can have up to six cards from other aspects in her deck as well! With event cards for both Protection and Justice also included in her pre-built deck, you’ll be able to try out her unique tactical flair right off the bat. With incredible combo potential and the ability to both deal damage and thwart schemes reliably, Gamora is a versatile hero and a valuable member of any team. You’ll be happy to have her!

Alien: Fate of the Nostromo

Soon you will be able to experience the nightmare aboard the Nostromo mining ship in another Alien game. This time a cooperative board game called Alien: Fate of the Nostromo by Ravensburger.

In the game One to five players will fill play the roles of the classic Nostromo’s crew members - Ripley, Lambert, Parker, Brett and Dallas.

Over the course of the game, they collect scrap, craft items, and fulfill different objectives. The crew will lose and gain morale as they encounter the Alien and other situations. If crew morale reaches zero, players lose the game.

Each turn has two phases. In the Crew Action phase, players creep through the Nostromo's halls, gathering scrap, crafting items, trading scrap and items with other players, and using items and their special abilities. Brett, for example, can craft items with one fewer scrap than other players. If the Alien is within three spaces of the player with the incinerator, that player can use the incinerator to send the Alien back to its nest.

In the Encounter phase, players draw and resolve an Encounter card. The Alien could be lurking behind any corner...

Alien: Fate of the Nostromo is scheduled to release on August 1st of this year. No information on pricing or what’s included in the box is currently available.
