Upper Deck and Marvel Entertainment have teamed up to bring fans an exciting new collectible game, "Slingers." The fast-paced game of skill and strategy pits two players against each other as they race to capture collectible medallions in an effort to score the most points and claim victory.
The Slinger itself is truly innovative as players use it in a similar fashion to a yo-yo, but the Slinger has a patented retractable mechanism and an "Invisible Energy Shield" that allows players to pick up collectible medallions if they "sling" it just right. If players sling the units too softly, they won't get close enough to the medallions to pick them up. If they sling them too hard, the Slingers game units will register when it hits the ground--deducting points and potentially lives from the player. Once players master handling the Slinger, they will score big by and cash in by recovering medallions with high point totals.
Both the Slinger and collectible medallions feature popular Marvel characters like the Avengers, Spider-Man, the X-Men, the Incredible Hulk and more. The collectible medallions are seeded at different ratios within packs and have different rarity levels and point values. Additionally, there are a variety of different formats to play the Slingers game which makes it exciting for participants of all ages and skill levels.
