First Appearance: Sentinels of the Multiverse: Base Game
Where it is: Ripping a page from Michael Crichton, Insula Primalis is the Multiverse’s Jurassic Park.
Primary Damage Type: Melee
Secondary Damage Type: Fire
Deck Concept: Dinosaurs rob you of your equipment as they take cheap shots. Volcanic events get heroes skipping turns, discarding cards, and/or discarding equipment.
Biggest Global Effect: Volcanic Eruption: At the start of the environment turn, this card deals each target 7 fire damage. At the start of their turn, a player may skip the rest of their turn to destroy this card. When this card is destroyed, look through the environment trash for a copy of the card “Obsidian Field” and put it into play.
Worst Card (for the Heroes): Pterodactyl Thief (5 HP): At the start of the environment turn, destroy all equipment cards. Put any cards destroyed this way beneath this card. At the end of the environment turn, this card deals each hero target 1 sonic damage per card beneath this card. When this card is destroyed, return the equipment cards beneath this card to the players’ hands.
Oddest Way to Win (Achievement Time): Enraged T-Rex (15 HP): At the end of the environment turn, this card deals the target with the second highest HP 5 melee damage.
Bonus Odd Way to Win: Velociraptor Attack (5 HP): At the end of the environment turn, this card deals the non-environment target with the lowest HP 2 melee damage for each copy of “Velociraptor Attack” in play.
How to Escape: Any time you have the option to skip a turn or discard cards and/or equipment consider taking the option. It stinks, but usually the alternative hurts a lot worse.
