Upper Deck will release Contest of Champions : Battlerealm, a combat and strategy game based on Kabam’s mobile fighting game Marvel: Contest of Champions in Summer 2018.
In the game, designed by Carmen Bellaire, players take control of a Marvel character, roll their dice to activate the character’s powers, and travel to different locations to gain points or take points from other players.
The mobile game is loosely based on Marvel Comics’ Contest of Champions miniseries by Mark Gruenwald, with art by John Romita, Jr. and Bob Layton, where the Grandmaster and Death play a game to decide the fate of the Collector, using various superheroes from Earth as pawns to collect pieces of a prize (see "Marvel Gets Meta With 'Contest of Champions'”).
The box contains 92 playable cards, 13 character cards, 14 standees, 6 dice and a rulebook. The game is for players 3 – 6 players, ages 12 and up, and plays in 30 – 45 minutes.
