Description Edit | History

The Legendary universe gets flipped upside down in Legendary: Villains – Marvel Deck Building Game, and you can now play as villains trying to take out the heroes protecting the city!

The goal of the game remains roughly the same as in the first Legendary game as players can work both with and against other players to overcome obstacles that the game throws at them. In this case, however, players use the super villains of the Marvel Universe — including Venom, Magneto and not Thanos — to battle superheroes such as the X-Men, the Avengers and Spider-Friends.

Legendary: Villains – Marvel Deck Building Game is a standalone game that includes all the cards needed to play.

2 Legendary Villains divider labels
Divider labels for Legendary Villains, works with Avery labels 6467 (or any other Avery that's 1/2"H x 1 3/4"W). The labels are designed with class icons in the order of rarity (left-right: rare, uncommon, commons) so you know exactly how many of those classes there are for each hero (1, 3, 5, 5).

3 Marvel Legendary Villains Card Reference Spreadsheet
This spreadsheet workbook contains all of the information on every card. I have the base game with all expansions in a separate workbook. Please let me know if you find any typos or mistakes. This will be updated later with better formatting, and I plan to insert images for classes, teams, attack, recruit, etc. I just wanted to upload a simple preliminary file in case anybody else wants to do anything with the data. My goal is to have a printable, easily readable reference in order to select more synergistic allies and adversaries.
3 Legendary Divider Labels kit with template, font, and icons
(See below for changes in the latest version) The .ai files named AveryLabels.ai and AveryLabelsVillains.ai included in this zip are the master files. You will need a copy of Adobe Illustrator CC in order to open these files. The file is laid out on a template provided by Avery for its 5167 product that has 80 return address labels on a sheet. According to their information, it should also be compatible with the following Avery products: 15267, 15667, 18167, 18667, 28667, 48267, 48467, 48867, 5167, 5267, 5667, 5967, 8167, 8667, 8867, 8927 I’ve exported the master .ai files into other formats. I can’t promise that they’ll be aligned correctly or be as editable as the master file. Sorry I have leaned more towards graphics formats than office formats. I work with graphics, not...

9 Marvel Legendary - Stickers for Dividers
Yet another design for Legendary dividers. I've decided to make this minimalist design as I was not interested in making full-size dividers. The official Legendary dividers suite me fine, all they were wanting were headlines. These are meant to be printed on a sticker paper, and sliced with an exacto knife. The frames are very light and are just meant to help align the cuts. This file is v4.0 containing all stickers for the base game and all the Expansions/Base sets so far - Legendary Base Game - Dark City Expansion - Fantastic Four Expansion - Paint the Town Red Expansion - Legendary: Villains Base set - Guardians of the Galaxy can be found [url=http://boardgamegeek.com/filepage/109381/marvel-legendary-stickers-dividers]here[/url]
4 Legendary Villains Character Analysis Version 1
In the same vein as my Heroes analysis, here's my analysis of the 15 Allies from Villains. I hope this guide is useful for any new players, and thoughts or opinions would be appreciated.
15 Marvel Flavored Villains SDNM Landscape Dividers
This small update includes a front divider for Commanders, Adversaries, Backup Adversaries, Allies and an alternate art for Bullseye so the art does not match the Streets of New York divider from the Legendary set.

This small update includes a front divider for Commanders, Adversaries, Backup Adversaries, Allies and an alternate art for Bullseye so the art does not match the Streets of New York divider from the Legendary set.
