One of my top 10 games and one of my top 5 most played games. This really makes me feel I'm fighting villains with super heroes (a team of super heroes). The different schemes really make the game come alive to me. I really enjoy this game and theme comes off the board to me.

This is one of my favorite solo games and a favorite to play with friends. I love all the different heroes, villains, and environments. Different mixes of all the cards really make it feel differently and adds a lot of replay. I've played this game a lot and I still want to play it more. That is a sign of a classic in this house.

A very rare game. It really is a skirmish game. It does have a ton of non-licensed super heroes. There is a lot of different options in this game. I'm not sure it would be so "popular" if it was not so rare. A fun game though.

A fun little area control game. At times it dragged a little and the ending seems to be in question, but the theme does carry this game pretty far. Still a lot to see here, but not quite the game most hoped for.

This game is not well liked, but I missed the hype (and letdown) when it was released. Instead, I found a game with awesome minis and a fun little Euro game. My secret Santa really made me happy. While not my favorite game ever, I do like this game. It just ends too quickly for me.

A really fun two player game. The action is in the card play. No fancy minis, everything is done with cards for the most part. At times it is bluffing and a race, but it is actually a pretty solid game.

A very simple deck builder. To me, lives and dies on the theme. As one of the few DC licensed games, if you want a DC licensed game you might not have much to choose from.

A very light, abstract super hero game. Not much comes in the box. The art work is retro and looks very cool. Very abstract. Currently priced higher than it should be (this game is worth about 10 or less).

In my humble opinion, this is a very simple, unplayable game. Allow me to clarify, you can play it but it is so simple I can't imagine having fun with it. If you do have fun with it, I'm happy for you, but I just couldn't.

A nice enough children's game. Nothing special. Very nice minis, but this is just a kid's game. Living off the theme.

A children's game. Comes with some nice minis, but strictly kids stuff here.
