This might be one Trading Card Game libraries will be interested in that have gaming collections and tournaments. Upper Deck is working on a Marvel Universe deck building game. It is being designed by Devin Low, formerly of Magic: The Gathering. This game is fairly familiar in that players will battle each other, but it has one twist, the game itself has built in villains that attack the players trying to destroy them. No release date is scheduled yet and the working title is Legendary.
