Ok, so I am placing an order for some games tomorrow.I am getting 2 for certain
.
DC Deck Building

Rise Of Augustus

Now, I am getting one more have and have narrowed it down to 3

Legendary Villains

Castles Of The Mad King Ludwing

Survive! Escape From Atlantis

All very different games I know, but out of the 3 listed which one do you feel is more of a must have for my collection?

I also do not mind having similar game types, so I wouldn't mind getting 2 deck builders.

As always I appreciate the input, I really do use it when choosing what games I purchase. :-D

[Edit] Ended up Getting DC DBG, Legendary, and Survive. Decided against Augustus, and will get Castles in my next order. Thank You!

Of those, I would honestly pick Survive! It is just great fun and may be one of our most played games in our family collection.

You won't really go wrong with Legendary either. I am a DC fan, but have been enjoying Legendary more lately.

I have not played Castles, but have heard good things about it.

From this I can't tell if you like cooperative games. If you do, I would recommend Legendary Villains (it's not completely coop but its a good start). If not, I would recommend Castles or Survive.

Legendary Villains is the one I am looking at purchasing. We like both co-op and non co-op.

Unless you really dig super heroes, i'd get Legendary Encounters: An Alien Deck Building Game over the old Legendary.
Much better game overall. It's really Legendary 2.0.

Survive! is the one to get! My family loves it. I introduced it to my meet-up group last year, we played someone else's copy just this past Monday. Everyone has a great time knocking the little meeples out of the boat with a whale and then the next person comes along with a shark to eat those meeples......mwaaahaaahaa devil

I would reccomend swapping out the DC DBG for Legendary: Villains (they're both DBGs serving similar themes, and I feel that Legendary is the much superior game), then getting Castles of the Mad King Ludwig to round out the order, as it is rather different than the rest of what you have on your list.

If you're set on the DC DBG, I'd get Survive! or Castles over Legendary, mostly to provide more variety in your collection over the idea that they're superior games to Legendary (which I like significantly more than Castles, and I have no experience with Survive, so nothing I can say there...).

I would like Encounters (even though we are huge comic fans) however I really want something a little more family friendly as I will be playing with my younger brother sometimes, and my parents really would not appreciate me playing this version with him. I will probably get it if I end up liking the Marvel one anyways, just to play with my husband, but just not at this time.

I am planning on getting the DC DBG partially for theme, (huge DC Fans) partially for introducing my husband to deck-building. I will I am sure eventually have Legendary, even if I do not purchase it at this time. I don't mind having both.
