Legendary Encounters

chestburster-cardUpper Deck  Entertainment published back in 2012 an excellent Deck Building game called Legendary. Based on Marvel Universe you have to save the world/city in this cooperative game from evil Villains. There are a lot of reviews on the web about this game, so I won’t make a full description over here – that said, a little surprise (at least for me) release is coming up with Legendary Encounters. This time we’ll be plunged back into survival mode to fight against Aliens. Yes, that’s right – they took up the 20th Century Fox license and made a brand new deck Building game that you can already preorder – read below the pitch from the preorder page that put the setting:
An ALIEN Deck Building Game is a Co-Operative game set in the ALIEN universe. Players will take on the roles of a Commander, Gunner, Synthetic or any of the ten role cards while recruiting powerful allies such as Ripley, Corporal Dwayne Hicks or Christie the Mercenary.

Legendary™ Encounters will take players on a terrifying journey through all four Feature Films, “ALIEN, ALIENS, ALIEN 3 and ALIEN Resurrection” as they work together to complete challenging mission objectives.

Scan Rooms, Attack Xenomorphs, avoid Facehuggers and try, TRY to avoid the ultimate death…becoming the victim of a ravenous Chestburster. If a players fate is destined to this horrific demise, than that player will take on the role of a Xenomorph and try to stop the other players from completing their mission objectives.
