Marvel Snap is a new digital card battler from Second Dinner, the developing studio headed up by Ben Brode, who’s best known for previously working on Hearthstone. The game allows both players to take their turns at the same time, though the question of initiative can sometimes be confusing. Here’s how to determine who has initiative and who reveals first in Marvel Snap.
How to Tell Who Reveals First in Marvel Snap
While both players will take their turns and play their cards at the same time in a game of Marvel Snap, initiative is extremely important to keep in mind here, as the play order can affect the outcome of a match.
At the start of each turn, the player who’s currently in the lead overall will have initiative. This means that if you’re leading in more locations than your opponent, your cards will flip first. You can also check the player profiles in the top left and right corners of the screen to see whose profile has a gold, glowing border. The player with the gold border will flip first.
If both players are currently tied, initiative and play order is random. Again, though, you can check your profiles for the gold border to see who reveals first in that scenario.
As mentioned previously, knowing who has initiative in Marvel Snap can really swing the outcome of a match. You don’t want to be stuck in a situation where you’re about to destroy a lane with Shang-Chi, only to later realize that your opponent has initiative and manages to sneak a Cosmo in first before Shang-Chi’s ability can trigger.
That’s all you need to know about determining who has initiative and reveals first in Marvel Snap. Be sure to search for Twinfinite for more tips and information on the game, including our picks for the best beginner decks, as well as the game’s global release timing.
