New Gamegenic Marvel Champions Game Mats stylishly protect from ‘dirty surfaces or scratches’
Each of the new Gamegenic Marvel Champions Game Mats measure roughly 24 by 14 inches with a thickness of just 2mm. So which Marvel Champions made the cut? Hulk, Iron Man, Captain America, Doctor Strange, Black Widow, Spider-Man, Thor, and Black Panther. Unsurprisingly, each and every option has stunning artwork that was “developed by Gamegenic.”
All game mats are comprised of natural rubber and feature an anti-slip back side. Gamegenic touts that all of the “awesome graphics” are centered “to avoid distraction during gameplay.” The construction “provides [a] safe environment for cards and accessories,” helping keep your collectibles in good shape as you’re playing with them.
Pricing and availability
No matter which of the eight characters you prefer, each one of the new Gamegenic Marvel Champions Game Mats is priced at $19.95. While currently in pre-order status and slated for release on February 11 over at Amazon, an official Gamegenic direct listing provides a bit of hope that the launch date could actually be sometime during “Fall 2021.”
