Not sure if this is the best place for this, but:

Is this for real? Dare I hope?

I've always thought Buff was perfect for the Legendary system. I so hope this is true.

Buffy and Legendary would be an instant buy for me. But if they were going to do it, wouldn't they use the Encounters system?

This seems pretty concrete evidence.

This is great news to wake up to. I was wondering what happened to the Upper Deck GenCon party and the usual flood of exciting announcements. They are usually a bit spoiled by UD announcing lisencing agreements ahead of time, so this really came out of nowhere.

Sending a Marvel team against some of the Buffy villains would be great, but I really want to throw the Buffy characters up against Aliens and Predators. I hope they get a Buffy VS expansion as well.

Got to ask, will this be a standalone like Aliens, Predator etc.. or will it be a continuing line like Marvel??

Does the Buffyverse have enough content (mainly heroes) to support a continuing product like Marvel does?

Its still good news though

as it has ben mentioned above, it will be a Marvel stylr set, where you have to defeat a mastermind and stop a scheme.
it will be similar to the Big trouble in little china set

As long as Legendary Buffy, Legendary Big Trouble in Little China, Legendary Breakfast Club, Legendary Sixteen Candles, etc... don't interfere with my Marvel release schedule, they can do whatever they wan't.

There are about 250 episodes between Buffy and Angel, so there are plenty of variations in main characters from season to season, along with supporting characters to keep going for a while. And if they want to go deep, there are a few years of comics to mine for content as well.

I hope Devin Low will design this game. Big Trouble does not have the same feeling as Marvel, from what i could tell.. it's nothing major, but there are lots of little things that show that Devin is not the designer of that set. Having the keywords explained on the carda... weird formulations.. not including a solo mode...so fingers crossed that Devin will also design Buffy.

I agree. Making the game more about interacting is neat and all, but to add too much of that at the expense of Single player is something I so not feel happy about. Will still play with BTiLC in single though, but the design clearly hurts that.

From the BGG stream: Buffy may go with screen grabs over original art, depending on how the contracts end up. Art may confuse people into thinking it's based on the comic instead of the show. Devin isn't involved, but a couple of other experienced designers and fans. They're adding a few things to the core engine, including a light/dark track to shift the strength of characters. (So vampires are weaker during the day.)

It doesn't necessarily need 400 expansions like Marvel. It could easily be 1-2 Buffy set and another Angel set. And that's without delving into the comics...

Agreed yes.
What I didnt want to happen is 2 expansions per year all with variations on 10 different Willows and different Buffys etc.

Its true there are lots of episodes which give lots of enemies, but unless they mine the comics/novels I think they are more limited on good guys and Masterminds.

Yes enough for 2 or 3 sets but im not sure more

Not really, they were just really pushing Big Trouble. Got to play Civil War, it's great!
