It was almost inevitable.  Dice Masters, WizKids dice and card game, has released it latest round of pieces and its is themed on the recent Marvel blockbuster movie, Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Age of Ultron Dice

Backing up, Dice Masters is a game where you start with generic dice which give you various forms of energy.  You use this to buy hero, villain or monster dice, which you use to attack your opponent.  Your opponent uses his heroes, villains or monsters to block.  Unblocked attacks (and other effects) reduce your opponents life points.  The first one to reduce the other guy’s life points to zero is the winner.  At this point, we have Marvel, Yugioh, Dungeons and Dragons and DC characters.  One of the awesome aspects of the game is you can mix and match characters across all licenses.

"Gathered together from the four corners of the universe." Oh, wait, that's the show, not me. Erik "SuperFriend" Skov never actually got to appear on the show, although he did watch it every week. Erik spent 6 years working for Hasbro in Pawtucket, RI before leaving for a job that paid more (Why else would a collector leave the company that was making Star Wars, Transformers, and while I was there Batman). I used to post all over the net. These days I tend to hang my hat at AFI.
