Catalyst Games Announces Valiant Universe Deck Building Game

The Valiant comic universe has been going strong for over 20 years and is now getting it’s own deck building game to join the likes of DC and Marvel.  So fans of the Valiant comic universe will be able to play as their favorite characters in this interesting twist to the deck building genre.  The game is described as:

You command an organization—the Harbinger Foundation, the Renegades, Project Rising Spirit, and more—attempting to seize a secret Alcatraz base known as the Facility. Purchase cards to craft a unique deck,  and battle your way through the ever-changing Facility grid that moves during play to gain access to a  card or damage another player. Maneuver your superhero miniatures to battle it out with other superheroes for ultimate control!

You might notice something interesting in that quote, there are miniatures to move around a grid, and that is where the wrinkle comes in.  Similar to Trains they are adding a board like element to the game in the form of a grid of cards to navigate with your hero.  Not much is revealed about how this works, but if you go to Catalyst’s tumblr you can read the article about it which includes a link to the original print and play game that this one is built on.
