Here We Go with Hero’s Destiny!

The new set is out, and we are Right Back At Ya!

New Video of Marvel Super Hero Squad Trading Card Game.

That is the view from the other side of the screen. The Amazing Mr. Puffin Rabbit captured one of our recent victories for posterity. What card did we use to finish the victory? Feast your eyes…

Marvel Comics Miami Heat Championship Shirt.

We love this shirt with all our heart, but which one is Bosh? 

We Will Be Right Back!

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for giving us a week off to celebrate the big red beatdown that our Miami Heat team gave to the NBA championship trophy.  The party is finally wrapping up, and we will return with a whole universe of Squad Card goodness very soon.

To infinity, and beyond!

Miami Heat Championship Parade.

We have been with this team since the first game in 1988.  We suffered through the days of Rony Seikaly and Rory Sparrow.  We felt the bruises alonside Alonzo Mourning and Timmy Hardaway.  We got a ring with Shaq and DWade learning to fly, but nothing compares to this.

Thank you, Miami Heat.  Our city has never been happier.  Ever.

A smile that will never wear off.

Bosh Bash On!!!

The Miami Heat Are The 2012 NBA World Champions!!!

Our sincere apologies for taking this week off from blogging about the Marvel Super Heroes Trading Card Game, but we are in extended celebration mode in Miami.  We got to meet Chris Bosh at his Christmas Party this year, and now we got the rings to go along with it.  See you next week, right now it is time to party.

Best. Playmat. Ever. True Power FTW.

Your eyes are not deceiving you.  That is a real playmat featuring Ultimate Thor riding a unicorn and calling down the rainbow.  It is one of the prizes in the Marvel Super Hero Squad Showdown Championship at Gen Con 2012.  Space in the tournament is limited, make sure you sign up early.  Get your decks ready and start practicing, that thing is seriously like the best playmat ever.

Wow.

Marvel Super Hero Squad Showdown at Gen Con 2012!!!

Yes, my friends, it is true.  Upper Deck’s Marvel Super Hero Squad Trading Card Game will be having an official championship at Gen Con 2012.  $6 to enter.  6 sealed booster packs.  1 Champion winning a brand new iPad.

It doesn’t get any better than that, get there if you can!

Crazy Combo Corner: Thor and Storm.

That little dude with the wings over his ears brings a big beautiful beatdown late in the game, especially when he joins his Thunderbolt with a particular Weather Witch.  It is a match made in heaven, for sure.

The power swells, the clouds get heavy, and people get zapped.  Last night my wife had two Wake of the Storm keepers in play on turn 10.  Thanks to her Masters of the Sky and a True Power, her Thunderbolt hit me for  13.  Then 20 more from the keepers.  33 damage in one turn… in real life.

Crazy combo, wonderful weather!

Bullseye could not have hit it better himself.  Upper Deck’s Marvel Super Hero Squad Trading Card Game is now available at Target stores in Single Player Intro Packs and individual Booster Packs.  Every Target in the United States is scheduled to sell the game, so get out there and get yours!

First School Champion, Big News Breaking.

We have just finished an intensive schoolwide tournament in my Art classes, the first of its kind for Upper Deck’s Marvel Super Hero Squad Trading Card Game.  Our inaugural champion is…

Jeremiah!!!

Since it is an Art class, his prize is rather fitting.  She-Hulk and Hulk, directly transformed into a famous masterpiece.  From Grant Wood’s American Gothic to one of the coolest pieces of cardboard in history.

Jade Giants FTW.

Believe me, these gamers are gonna get good after practicing all summer.  And, in breaking news, later today will see the announcement of the availability of Upper Deck’s Marvel Super Hero Squad at major retail venues.

Stay tuned to this station!

Surf’s Up for Squad Cards.

The Eternal Cosmos has been captured on cardboard. Silver Surfer’s latest incarnation can be found in Upper Deck’s Super Hero Squad Trading Card Game and it is one of the coolest things in all the Marvel Universe. The Power Cosmic had never looked better.

Ever.

We Have A Winner! The Loot Card Champion Is Captain Silent Worm With His True Power!

We have a winner, and his name is Captain Silent Worm. His favorite card shows Thor riding a unicorn, calling down the rainbow. True Power was actually chosen by 3 different entries. We had 24 contestants, and these were the results:

With the help of Random.org, Captain Silent Worm was chosen.  He was the lucky #13 and his game will now be full of Avengers Courage.

Congratulations!!!

Little Wasp Packs A Big Punch.

Big stings do come in small packages in Upper Deck’s Marvel Super Hero Squad Trading Card Game.  Wasp makes sure of it.  Every TCG has a “weenie” strategy that utilizes a swarm of small characters to flood the board and dominate the biggest opponents.  In this game, she is gorgeous.
