Fantasy Flight Games has announced a new board game based on the Marvel license. This time it should be a board game and not a card game like Marvel Champions. A logo for the new title will soon be available on social media, otherwise FFG was stingy with information. 

Marvel: DAGGER will be the name of the new work explicitly announced as a board game. Studio boss Chris Gerber explained what the acronym DAGGER is all about: Defense Alliance for Global and Galactic Emergency Response. And otherwise? Overall, Fantasy Flight Games was very economical with information. 

Marvel: DAGGER - Big announcement sometime later 

The announcement of Marvel: DAGGER wasn't actually one - at least in the classic sense. Rather, Chris gerber had teased the new board game with the comic license. A bigger reveal is yet to come: sometime later in 2022 or even early 2023. Fans will have to be patient anyway. Following the conversation about the game, Marvel: DAGGER seems to be a long way off overall. The board game may not even be expected until 2024, but nobody knows that at the moment - except FFG. However, nothing is revealed there. 

After all: The title seems to be a real board game and a new development and not some kind of offshoot of the enormously successful Marvel Champions: The Card Game. With the Living Card Game, FFG had already proven how sensibly and carefully they know how to handle the popular comic hero brand. Yes, the card game sucks fans the last pennies out of their pockets, but it convinces playfully both alone and with several players. The title was released in 2019 - and has since blossomed into one of the most popular - if not the most popular - Marvel parlor game. 

There haven't been many Marvel games before anyway, even if that might seem different given the countless card packs for Marvel Champions. Besides Marvel United, Marvel Legendary, Marvel Villainous, Crisis Protocol and X-Men: Mutant Insurrection, a remake of Elder Sign, not that much happens in the “real” board game segment. The announced Marvel: DAGGER also seems to be in good hands at Fantasy Flight Games. There have rarely been any real flops among the licensed games from FFG - when criticism has been leveled, it is often because the prices are sometimes too high or there are too many expansions too close together.

Fantasy Flight Games is part of the Asmodee Group. Recently, the studio had continued the stories of the basic game with Star Wars: Outer Rim - Open Accounts. The company is currently similarly active in the area of ​​the license for The Lord of the Rings.
