Collectible Components

Collectible components games are ones where players purchase the components required to play the game incrementally, rather than all at once. Most of these games have a transitory nature, which breeds a need to collect an entire set before the set disappears. Magic: the Gathering may have pioneered the collectible card game (CCG), but miniatures games predate Magic, and now dice may have found a niche in the collectible component mechanic with Marvel Dice Masters.
