The Ghost of Christmas Future Presents: An Upcoming Game!! (Or, The Second Night of Clix-Mas 2017!!)

[EDITOR’S NOTE: Welcome to Clix-Mas 2017, wherein we here at Critical Missives rather foolishly try to provide you with twelve different articles in twelve days, all brought to you by either the Ghost of Christmas Past, the Ghost of Christmas Present, or the Ghost of Christmas Future! If you need to catch up with our intro to all of this, the first Night of Clix-Mas 2017 can be found right here!]

Christmas Future

“And that tiny speck, way off in the distance? That’s the day the Marvel/Fox deal clears regulatory hurdles and the X-Men can finally join the MCU!”

Welcome to Night Two of the Twelve Nights of Clix-Mas, 2017!

Today, we going to peek into the future by… well, by about five days!

Have you ever wondered what would happen if all the different holidays started fighting each other for supremacy? No? That’s weird… anyway…

This is the next scenario I’m going to be running at Comics & More in Madison Heights, MI on December 20th at 6:30pm!

THE GAME: Holiday Havoc!!

THE BUILD:Each competitor will field a 400 Point Golden Age team aligned with one of the Holiday-Themed factions listed below. Each character on a force must have at least ONE of the required keywords OR meet the Alternative Requirement.




Keywords:Mystical, Deity. Alternative Requirement:The Snowfall Team Ability.

Christmas Wish: At the beginning of the game, place a single d6 set to the number 6 on your Sideline. Once per game, you may remove the d6 from your Sideline and replace any rolled die result with the d6 removed from your Sideline. That die result cannot be further rerolled.
