The fate of New York City hangs in the balance as players try to pry the cosmic cube from Red Skull’s hands, but there’s subterfuge afoot. Some players are actually Hydra agents in disguise, forcing players to root out the bad seeds while trying to save the city. The game is currently on sale at a 40 percent discount and would be a welcome addition to any geeky game night.

The book also features plenty of behind-the-scenes pictures and interviews with cast and crew, making it easily worth adding to any MCU fan’s collection. Especially when Amazon knocks five bucks off the list price.
