LEGENDARY™ is a unique new deck building game from Upper Deck Entertainment that uses a “Mastermind” villain and his Dark Scheme to run the game, and, in-turn fight back against the players. LEGENDARY™ is for 1-5 players, who choose heroes like Spider-Man, Hulk, Cyclops, Wolverine, and more to build both their recruitment powers (to enlist even more heroes) and their fighting ability to use against villains!
As players fight and defeat villains, they collect cards which will be worth victory points at game’s end. Players can also fight the Mastermind; and if he has enough fighting power, claims one of the four attack cards which has a specific effect on the game and the players. If all four cards are claimed, the game ends and players tally their points to see who the ultimate winner is. If the Mastermind completes his dark scheme, however – having a certain number of villains escape or imposing a certain number of wounds on the heroes – then the players will lose.
