Marvel Snap Is A New, Fast-Paced Collectible Card Game From Ex-Hearthstone Devs

Second Dinner, an indie studio formed from Blizzard veterans who worked on Hearthstone, has announced its first game. Marvel Snap is a new, fast-paced CCG that relies on simultaneous turns, shorter matches, and a unique zone-control mechanic to make for quick games.

Marvel Snap features more than 150 Marvel characters, each with multiple art variants, and more than 50 locations. Each game lasts just six turns, so games only take about three minutes each. And if you want to press your luck, you can “Snap,” placing a bet on yourself to win to raise the stakes for double the rank rewards. The free-to-play game will launch this year on mobile and PC. New cards and locations will be added through weekly updates and monthly seasons.

You each take six simultaneous turns to play Marvel characters to claim control of the locations, and whoever has control of two out of the three locations wins.
