"Doesn't take too long to learn the rules and system, but admittedly I had to look up many questions online because the rulebook failed to mention or clarify something. Marvel Champions LCG strikes a good balance between strategy and simplicity, and feels challenging without being frustrating. The enemy strength also scales to the number of players, allowing for a fair fight whether you play solo or up to 4. No DM is needed, so everyone gets to join in. You can customize which villains and scenarios to take on, what cards to put in your deck, and what hero to play as. They have mini expansions you can buy for more of those, but this box comes with 5 heroes (Black Panther, Spiderman, Capt. Marvel, Iron Man, and She-Hulk) and I think 3 villains (Rhino, Klaw, and Ultron) as well as several "modules" that add different challenges."
