One aspect of the Marvel Dice Masters experience that I really like is the game’s low price point. Starter sets are only $15, while booster packs featuring two dice and two cards are only $1. The problem is that the starter pack is short on supporting materials to play and store the game. The paper bags used to shake up your dice are of poor quality, there’s only one dice placement guide tucked away in the manual, and the actual box itself doesn’t hold many extra dice and cards beyond the ones that it already contains. Clearly, these concessions were made to keep the price down, but some players – like me – would prefer the extra bells and whistles.

This is where the Marvel Dice Masters: Uncanny X-Men Collector’s Box comes into play. Besides being a nice and large box to hold your stuff, you also get just enough stuff for one player to get going. I crack it open so that you can see if this is worth adding to your collection.


Inside the box, you’ll get one large printout of the game board. Thanks to its size, it’s certainly functional within the context of a real match. It’s also an upgrade over the small one in the manual, which was buried in the centrefold and constantly trying to close itself. One the reverse side is a large checklist for all of the Uncanny X-Men cards.

You’ll also get one large felt bag. The paper bags that come with the starter set are awful, so this is a huge step up.

The box comes with all of the basic action dice and action cards, but it doesn’t come with all of the dice from the starter set. If you want all of those, you’ll need to buy the starter set separately. You don’t necessarily need to though, as you can also flesh out your collection through booster packs. Pictured here are four booster packs, which give you a total of eight cards and eight dice. Your results may vary, but I got a few common and uncommon cards, as well as one Apocalypse rare that I’m really excited to use.

The key to this box is the tray above. To the left are slots for all of your cards. On the right is a fancy tray that holds well over 100 dice. Up until now, I’ve been using a plastic baseball card case to hold my dice, which isn’t attractive or effective for sorting. This though is ideal. You’ve got a lot of space to work with, and the clear plastic cover (pictured above) goes over top and locks them all into place. In terms of keeping your dice tidy and easy to access, this tray can’t be beat.

The trick to the Collector’s Box is knowing that it isn’t a substitute for the starter set. It doesn’t contain all of the content you’ll need to get a two-player game going, even though I would be willing to pay more for this to be exactly that. However, it does serve its purpose of being a great way to store all of the stuff you already own. If you’re in need of a better storage solution, this is the way to go.

The Collector's Box has everything one player needs to get started playing Marvel Dice Masters! Whether you decide to play as the X-Men or their foes, this box set will get you started and provide a great place to keep your Marvel Dice Masters cards and dice.
