Another of the big announcements from Fantasy Flight during Gen Con Online so far is X-Men: Mutant Insurrection, a new dice-driven card game from Richard Launius and Brandon Perdue that puts players in the role of those superheroes who were simply born different. Go and seek out new mutants to enroll in Professor X's School For Gifted Youngsters, take out dangerous supervillains, and protect the innocent while showing that mutants are just people too.
From the article:
Fifty miles north of New York City, Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters may seem like just another affluent private school for exceptional students. Few could guess that these students are mutants, and fewer still know that Xavier’s School is the headquarters of the X-Men—a team of heroic mutants fighting to protect humanity from superhuman threats!
Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce X-Men: Mutant Insurrection, a fast-paced, cooperative, dice-driven card game for one to six players!
Designed by Richard Launius and Brandon Perdue, X-Men: Mutant Insurrection invites you to travel across the globe on death-defying missions to recruit new mutants, capture criminals, protect innocent lives, and battle against some of the most iconic X-Men villains.
