Description

Legendary® is a deck-building game set in the Marvel Comics universe.

To set up the game, players choose a number of hero decks from the likes of Spider-man, Hulk, Cyclops, or Wolverine, to name a few. Shuffle them together (since players use only a handful of hero decks out of the fifteen included) allowing the hero deck to vary widely in terms of what's available. Players then choose a mastermind villain (Magneto, Loki, Dr. Doom, etc.) and stack that particular villain's attack cards underneath it. Next, modify the villain deck as needed based on that villain's particular scheme.

Over the course of the game, players will recruit powerful hero cards to add to their deck in order to build a stronger and more resourceful deck. Players need to build both their recruitment powers (to enlist more heroes) and their fighting ability (to combat the villains who keep popping up to cause trouble).

Players recruit heroes from an array of six cards, with empty slots refilled as needed. At the start of a player's turn, he reveals a villain and adds it to the row of villains. This row has a limited number of spaces, and if it fills up, the earliest villain to arrive escapes, possibly punishing the heroes in some way. Some villains also take an action when showing up for the first time, such as kidnapping an innocent bystander. The villain deck also contains "master strike" cards, and whenever one of these shows up, the mastermind villain (controlled by the game) takes a bonus action.

As players fight and defeat villains, they collect those cards, which will be worth points at game's end. Players can also fight the mastermind; if a player has enough fighting power, he claims one of the attack cards beneath the mastermind, which has a particular effect on the game. If all of these cards are claimed, the game ends and players tally their points to see who wins. If the mastermind completes his scheme, however – having a certain number of villains escape, for example, or imposing a certain number of wounds on the heroes – then the players all lose.

Do you have what it takes to defeat the villains? Or, will you let them escape? Play Legendary: A Marvel Deck Building game to find what the cards have in store for you.

a bit finnicky but they look great on the base

You have to be gentle with them, the "flower" parts tend to clump together when removing from the paper but if you mix them in with other tufts from this range they look superb

Digibrilliant!

This game is different enough from the big three card games (Magic, Pokemon & Yu-Gi-Oh!) to be exciting to play even for a jaded old man like me. The art and lore are a wonderful nostalgia hit for those of is that grew up with the Saturday morning cartoon too. Great game, would highly recommend giving it a go :)

This your dice? Preetty dice!

Bought for 10 yr old daughter as she gets into D&D, my opinions are obviously irrelevant. She ADORES them. Rolls a lot of 20s. Major Dad win.
Thanks Athena for your patience and enthusiasm as both my children ummed and ahhed over their choices, really lovely supportive experience for them. My son later said 'Why can't all shops be like that?' And there you have it.
