Back in March, we reported that the next expansion for UpperDeck”s Marvel Legendary deck building game was going to be villain focused. It would keep the same core mechanics in place, but give us a chance to be the bad guys trying to fight the forces of good. This would also be a stand-alone expansion too, meaning it was essentially like buying the first game. All the cards are in the box and we get to play them without buying boosters. On top of that, it was later confirmed that the Villain”s set would be fully compatible with the original Marvel Legendary and its three expansions, Dark City (Marvel Knights/X-Men), Fantastic Four, and Paint the Town Red (Spider-Man).
This new set, with villains and heroes alike, definitely open up the game to entirely new interpretations. There are many times in the comics where villains need to work with the heroes to defeat larger threats, such as Spider-Man and Venom against Carnage, or Magneto and the X-men take on Apocalypse. The possibilities are now endless and they”re also available for purchase.
I picked up my set at a local game store over the holiday and instantly busted it out when I got home to see all the new cards, artwork, and rules. Needless to say, 500 cards and one kick ass how do you check your credit score for free can stand in for money, but it is not. playmat later, I”m impressed. We”ll be testing it out this coming week at the office (as someone else bought it too) and give you a report next week. Until then, here”s some pictures of the game and the press release.
