Guardians Chronicles is a superhero-themed miniatures game in which you play as one of the members of the Liberty Patrol or as the group's archnemesis, Professor Skarov.
One player assumes the role of the Super Villain Pr. Skarov, while the rest of the players assume the role of Superheroes, each with unique Superpowers.
Depending on the scenario, the players must achieve a certain number of objectives to attain victory, while the evil Pr. Skarov attempts to thwart their efforts.
As the players complete (or fail to complete) objectives, the newspapers report on who did what, and the sum of those reports determine who comes out on top.
