Thanos Rising is the most fun and well-balanced dice game we've ever played. The game is cooperative, with teams of Marvel Heroes facing off vs. Thanos, with the theme matching the gameplay perfectly. Every turn, players make a choice between strengthening their team's heroes or weakening Thanos's minions, all while Thanos methodically hurts the teams or works his way towards the dreaded infinity gauntlet. While the dice rolling adds randomness, it's the best kind of randomness, since it prevents the most experienced player from long-term planning out everyone else's moves. The player gets to decide to re-roll dice and change their objectives as they go, allowing for both strategic thinking and gutsy risk taking. With close to 50 plays between my wife and I, it's one of our favorite ways to spend an hour, and we can't believe how much fun it continues to be. The component quality is good, and the overall value at MSRP is competitive with many other games, since you're getting a large figurine, complex boards (all pre-cut), and detailed cards with good artwork. But the real reason you want this is the top-notch game design - simple ruleset, addictive play, and important decisions on every turn!
