Marvel Legendary - Secondary Play

2015-05-10

I decided to give it another go. I played the following setup:

I think that’s all that’s important. The Scheme says to use 6 heroes and put 12 hero cards into the villain deck. This conflicts with Solo rules which state to use 3 heroes, so I just halved the number of hero cards to add to the villain deck to 6.  Otherwise I used the same rules.

My final score was 2. I did win. It actually felt pretty close. It didn’t have the same feel of tension that I remember Legendary Encounters giving me, but there was a better sense of tension than I got from the last playthrough.  Unfortunately, I really think Vassal works against the experience here, with its clunky interface.  I also think part of it is inherent to the design of the Legendary system, though.

I’m not sure here. I’m lukewarm on Marvel Legendary. I’ll probably pass on it until I have the opportunity to play in person with some other folks.
