Hi folks,

I'm new to the whole Legendary system, but I'm a huge ol' Big Trouble in Little China nut. I play other card games, such as Legend of the Five Rings and Doomtown Reloaded.

So, I am planning on playing this with 2-4 of my buddies. Do we need to pick up more boxes to play. It claims that it is for 1-5 players (or 2-5 depending on what you read). Is that with just one box?

I've already ordered one box. I'm anxious to give it a try.

Thanks!

You have not need 1 box to play up to 5 players. In fact, the game is designed in such a way that if you follow the rules exactly (without houserules) it's impossible to play with more than 5 players, even if you buy a second box.

One box is good to five players. It's a stand alone game. That's all the cards you need and that's all the players who can play.

FYI, the dichotomy between 1-5 and 2-5 players is because AFAIK you can't play it single handed solo, only double handed (you effectively play as if there were two of you).
