PULP FORMAT INFORMATION

Postby hcrulesteam » Tue May 30, 2023 11:44 pm

The Pulp Format only allows you to use non-prime figures from DC Comics and Marvel booster sets that have white, green, or silver rarity tabs. all characters used in this format are considered Unique. Additionally, teams may only consist of characters. Other than maps and standard terrain markers, no non-character game elements can be used.

Please see below for a Pulp Format FAQ and a list of all the figures/game elements banned for the Pulp Format. In the future, figures/game elements might be banned in the Pulp Format even if they’re legal in Modern Age, since the needs of the formats are different.

PULP FORMAT FAQ

Postby hcrulesteam » Tue May 30, 2023 11:49 pm

Q: What rarities are allowed in Pulp?
A: Common, Uncommon, and Rare figures that are not primes, as defined by their white, green, or silver rarity tabs. Some figures with a Limited Edition rarity, such as those figures using Legacy Cards, may have a white, green, or silver tab, but they are not legal in Pulp.

Q: Are Team Up cards legal in Pulp?
A: No. In Pulp characters are restricted to only their base cards.

Q: Can your team have a Sideline in Pulp?
A: Yes, teams in Pulp can use a standard Sideline of two elements per 100 points of the build total.

Q: What makes a set a “booster set”?
A: Booster sets are any set sold as blind sealed product with packages containing 4 or 5 game figures, as well as any accessory products that share a set symbol with that set.

Q: Are characters from Starter Sets, Fast Forces, and Miniatures Games legal?
A: Starter Sets, Fast Forces, and Miniature Games that are tied to booster sets, and share a set symbol, are allowed. Those that do not share a set symbol with a booster set are not allowed.
As an example, The Marvel HeroClix: Spider-Man Beyond Amazing Miniatures Game shares a set symbol with the booster set Marvel HeroClix: Spider-Man Beyond Amazing, and is therefore legal in Pulp. The Marvel HeroClix: Fantastic Four Cosmic Clash Starter Set does not share a set symbol with any booster set, so its figures are not legal in Pulp.
