🏆 Our Top Picks for Best Marvel Board Games
In a hurry? Take a quick peek before you dash off.
#1. 5 Minute Marvel
Take your pick between 10 Marvel superheroes to complete missions full of different villains, super-villains, and the almighty Thanos. The gameplay is a race against the clock to match the symbols in your hand to the villains to defeat and Hulk-smash through the ranks to take on the big man himself.
#2. Legendary: A Marvel Deck-Building Game
Playing Time: 30-60 minutes
The villains are here to make or break your chances for success in this deck-building game! If you cannot round up some other heroes to help you on this quest, do not worry as this gameplay has a single-player deviation as well as semi-cooperative group play.
The game designs are simply out of Asgard, and having a scaling difficulty helps if you’re feeling more Chris Evans than Captain America. One evil mastermind is drawn, cards placed, heroes assembled, and so it begins! Make your deck as resourceful as possible to increase recruitment and fighting ability, and save up victory points to steal attacks from the mastermind and win back your universe.

#3. Marvel Champions: A Card Game
Playing Time: 45-90 minutes
Peter Parker? Spider-Man? Tony Stark? Iron-Man?
In this living card game, it is important to know when to use your spidey senses and when to play into your alter ego and rest. Encounters will pop up to throw you off of the fight; deal with your real-world responsibilities and unique enemies as you try to cooperate with fellow players to complete the initiative.
If you’re good at multitasking, resource management, and have a lust to save the world, zip up your suit and get started!

#4. Hail Hydra
Playing Time: 40-75 minutes
S.H.I.E.L.D. called, they need New York City back. It is up to you and your fellow agents to stop HYDRA, but not everything is as it seems.
Similar to “Resistance”, it will take social deduction to figure out who among you all is secretly playing as a HYDRA operative. Fight together or apart against the deck until you take on Red Skull himself to retrieve the Cosmic Cube and save NYC.
Think “Secret Hitler” but more… red?

#5. Marvel United
Playing Time: 40 minutes
Red Skull, Taskmaster, and Ultron are here on a quest to destroy the city, each with their own plans for world domination in mind. Join forces as you will either win together or lose together in this Marvel story builder.
The gameplay is fairly limited and simple so it would be recommended as more of a filler game unless you are taking on the mission by yourself, in which case you will need a hawkeye to be victorious. Your actions have a ripple effect so it is best to coordinate with your other heroes to hit the supervillains where it hurts.
- COOPERATIVE GAMEPLAY: In Marvel United, you’re all in it...
- PLAY AS AN ICONIC MARVEL HERO: Take on the role of iconic Marvel...
- NEVER THE SAME GAME TWICE: Marvel United gameplay is random and...
This game also has many expansion packs if you want to add some more actions to the mix and diversify game movement.
#6. Marvel Crisis Protocol
Playing Time: 90 minutes
Tired of saving the world? Why not sit back and get creative while you plan your super-powered dream team? This miniature tabletop playing set comes unpainted and ready for you to design to your heart’s content. Channel your creative side and create the map, weapons, and heroes as you wish, and then be prepared to throw your opponent into all of them!
Will you power up with another hero or take on the challenge personally? A narrative game with interactive terrain is a switch-up in this list, so expect a more technical game-playing experience. I Widown’t expect to go down without a good, action-filled fight.

#7. Thanos Rising
Playing Time: 60-90 minutes
Why was Thanos so crazy? He snapped. The supreme villain is back in one piece and with a vengeance; the man wants his stones!
Coordinate with your fellow players in this dice and card game to collect the Infinity Stones before Thanos forms his collection. You must work together as every dice roll could cost you the very existence of the universe. Make sure to thwart his plans or else everything could get very strange!
#8. Marvel Dice Masters: Avengers Infinity Box
Playing Time: 30 minutes
Avengers Assemble! Guardians Gather! As one of the more complex games on the list, it offers amazing variety. The game itself is beautiful, something only Professor X can imagine for us. From the dice to the card art, the depictions are other-worldly. This dice game allows you to fight hero vs hero, hero vs villain, or villain vs villain, a nice change-up.
Collect cards to build your squad, use dice to play the actions, and prepare your custom team of heroes for success.

#9. Marvel Strike Teams
Playing Time: 60-120 minutes
Morph would be proud of our final Marvel mention, as this game can be played HeroClix campaign style or mission-based. One player will pose as the villainous mastermind guiding different encounters and it is up to you to use the setbacks to your best heroic abilities. Object in your way? Or did you just find a weapon to cast at Hydra soldiers? Use your powers to build points, and captain your team to victory!
This game combines deck movement, action points, dice, and luck so there are quite a few moving parts — be sure to channel your inner Doctor Octopus.
