Legendary: A Marvel Deck Building Game
As the self-explanatory title indicates, this game consists of strategically building up a deck of Marvel superheroes. The heroes have different abilities that are used as perks when the cards are played. Cards can be spent to buy other superhero cards to build up each player's deck or to fight henchmen and villains. Each game has a particular Scheme full of twists that penalize the players when they randomly appear, a single Mastermind must be defeated multiple times in order for the players to win the game, but other secondary villains and henchmen must be kept from escaping as well. Each evil character that is defeated is worth victory points and the player with the most wins. However, there are many ways for Evil to win and only one way for players to be victorious, so they must balance competition against each other with fighting Evil.
