In Legendary, players take on the roles of Marvel heroes, including the Avengers and X-Men, and team up to defeat an evil Mastermind. The players have to defeat the likes of Magneto, Loki, Dr. Doom, or Red Skull to win the game - if they do, the players are ranked by the most Victory Points accumulated during play. Because of this, Legendary has a cooperative feel.

It was a hit in my family's household, including with people who were not comic book fans or gamers.
For those who wanted a listing of who is in the game: The featured heroes are Spider-Man, Captain America, Thor, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Iron Man, Hulk, Cyclops, Wolverine, Storm, Rogue, Emma Frost, Gambit, Deadpool, and Nick Fury. The 'mastermind' villains are Dr. Doom, Loki, Magneto, and the Red Skull. Many other villains are represented in 'villain group' cards.
This game is recommended.
All of the expansions are quite cheap (20 bucks) and all of them add oodles, OODLES, of new content and replayability.
Aside from that, rating the game itself, it's been awesome. Card artwork is so nice, I think I'm going to want to sleeve them in the future (waiting on the official Legendary sleeves to come out). Box has plenty of room for future expansions, for those who like to consolidate into one box (even with sleeves). Without sleeves, my cards only fill up half the box.
Dividers that come in the box are blank, wish they were pre-printed with labels. Found someone on the Board Game Geek forum who had posted PDF files of labels he made. Printed those on Avery style labels and just applied them to the top rows of each divider. Those worked fine.
“It’s awesome! It’s Marvel! You can imagine that you’re a hero fighting the villains, which is really fun. I like how the game works (translation: game mechanics), and that there is a board—DC Deckbuilding doesn’t have a board (he loves DC Deckbuilding, though). I like that it’s a longer game that you can enjoy without getting bored.”
Not all of the heroes are used in a single game. Also, all of the heroes are available to everyone. When you buy a card, then you get just that hero card. This allows everyone to have access to the heroes used in that game.
You start with 12 cards in your deck. You draw 6 cards and play them all. At the end of your turn you draw 6 cards for next turn. If your draw deck is gone, you shuffle your discard pile as a new draw deck. Played cards go into the discard pile at the end of your turn. You start with some junky cards, but eventually you will have better cards.
Each hero card has a STAR recruit point value, or a SLASH attack value, and all have a Recruit COST value. After playing your hand of 6 cards, you total up your STAR points and buy (recruit) a hero card (or cards), which goes into the discard pile. Eventually these bought cards will make it into the draw deck and then your hand. You total up your SLASH attack points and attack Villians or the Mastermind, provided your attack points are equal to or greater than whom you are attacking. In so doing, you automatically defeat whom you are attacking, but the enemy cards have actions printed on them that may affect your cards. Villian cards appear on the neat and simple game board every turn.
Players work together to defeat the Mastermind Villian, each player taking turns individually. Once the Mastermind Villian has lost 4 times, the players win!
There is a little more than that, but what I have described is the core of gameplay. To clarify, no one plays the Villians or the Mastermind. The game runs those on its own.
The cards are very well done. The graphics are great. The board is also well made. Many owners protect the cards with plastic card sleeves.
Many cards have further instructions on them, but these instructions are easy to follow. The hardest rule to learn is something called 'chaining'. This has to do with cards played on top of cards. The rulebook explains it rather well. As a matter of fact, the rulebook is well done, clear and concise.
HEROES (14 cards each)
MASTERMINDS (5 cards each)
VILLIANS (1-2 cards each)
Skrull Queen Veranke
Your favorites aren't listed? Not to worry as Legendary will definitely have expansions. There are also Henchmen and Shield Agents and other cards needed to play. This deck building game does not use dice.
Certain to be a Collector's item someday, Legendary Marvel Deck Building Game includes over 550 cards, game board and rulebook. There are even 60 blank divider cards for keeping the play cards in order within the expansive box. This is a great game!
