Critical Encounters - A Marvel Champions Podcast

Vardaen, bigfomlof and WanderingTook

Critical Encounters is a podcast about Marvel Champions, a Living Card Game by Fantasy Flight Games. Here we take a good look at that most critical piece of the game, the Encounter Sets. We’ll discuss those poorly understood characters, unfairly labeled Villains, and their various plans to shape humanity and benefit the planet, as well as those so-called heroes intent on thwarting them.

  • Fresh perspective

    This podcast offers a fresh perspective on the game by focusing on the villain cards and how they thwart the heroes. It’s fun and entertaining - so give it a listen. And if you hate it then share it with your enemies (like your jerk uncle Sven who won’t shut up about being a vegan each and every holiday).
