Details of USAopoly’s Marvel Comics version of Vlaada Chvatil’s hit card game CodenamesCodenames:  Marvel will release in September.

Like the original game, Codenames:  Marvel challenges players, acting as members of either S.H.I.E.L.D. or Hydra, to identify their friendly agents hidden in a field of 25 Code cards, using only hints from other team members.  This version uses iconic images from Marvel comics in place of word cards, featuring characters from Spider-Man, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Avengers, and Doctor Strange.

Codenames:  Marvel includes 200 Code cards, 40 Key cards, 25 Team cards, and 1 card stand.  The game is intended for 2 to 8 players, ages 9 and up.  MSRP is $24.95.
