The X-Men, continuing to deal with their own problems, are no strangers to time travel and dimension hopping. However this time is different, like something out of a Terminator movie, Nimrod is sending drones back through time and dimension to destroy different members of the X-men. Will they be able to stop the time hopping mad android? Or with they also be terminated?

Game 1: Evil Wins!
Boy, did we have some bad luck. On the first few turns, when we had 4 SHIELD troopers in our hands there were no sentinels and when there were, we did not have enough attack.

Solo. 2 Games, both defeats. I'm not sure this is possible as a one player. I couldn't get an engine going fast enough before five heroes were KO'd. Also, having a bunch of heroes that gain more power from KO'ing is just mean! Has anyone beat solo yet?

I always test them to make sure a win condition could be attained. So I have at least beaten it once, but I have also racked up more losses than wins Solo.

It is possible.

I was skeptical as well with this scenario for solo and had read a number of comments to that effect.

But I had a go. And I won! 42 points! On my first attempt!

I know. I was pretty shocked as well, especially seeing that I already had 4 non-gray heroes KO'd.

But winning aside (and I really didn't think I was going to at one point), it was one of the most enjoyable and fun games of Legendary I have ever played (and I've played a lot!!)

Really though one. It was finished by turn 6

Evil won, score -9pts.

I hope I was playing right. So the Villain deck should have 2 villain groups, 6 sentinels, 5 MS, 1 bystander and 2 scheme twists and one city space?

Yeah, it is not an easy scheme at all, but it can be won. It takes a little bit of luck to be honest.

I'd correct it to great bit of luck. And you need it fast, because if first few turns aren't lucky, the game doesn't last even 5 minutes.

Fair. Are you playing a card after a master strike takes place? Because I don't, not for this scheme. The problem with some of these types of schemes is that there is no breathing room save for the single bystander in the deck. So I do that to allow for a total of six kind of breathing spaces.

No, I didn't play extra card after a master strike. But probably it was just a bunch of unluck. In my 3 short games I drew twice a scheme twist and once double scheme twist. I was just turned off after that.

But don't worry. Maybe next one will be better. Thanks for bringing new challenges to us!

My game ended in a draw when one of the villain decks ran out, there was two cards left in the 2nd player pile so I tried two more turns drawing from the one pile each time, but with only one Mastermind tactic card left I couldn't catch him.
Soooooo frustrating as many times I had enough attack but only 5 recruit, it's ties like this I wish these heroes knew how to coordinate and work together
loved it thanks

Game 1: Evil wins! (managed to get a hit on Nimrod though, so I'm in for a rematch!)

Game 2: Evil wins! in 8 turns. Wow... it did not feel good to lose that fast... How about another rematch?

Game 3: Evil wins! IN 5 TURNS - I did not even hit a single villain! Awful! I quit... until I have more heroic friends that can help me pull it off.

Game 1: 2 players, evil won
Game 2: 2 players, evil won
Game 3: 3 players, evil won
Game 4: 2 players, GOOD FINALLY WON!!!

Me: 40
She: 42

Man, that was tough. And it's possible I'm forgetting about another 2-player defeat. Nimrod is deceptively tough. Twice in our victorious game I amassed 18 Attack which should have allowed me to triple punch it, but I was having difficulty getting over that 6 Recruit hump. In the end, I was clearing out all the villains in the fragmented realities while she was beating on Nimrod. Tough, tough challenge!

2 players, 2 games, evil won both times. The first game we lost in 10 turns, the second game we lasted a bit longer, but still had no hits on Nimrod.

Me: 18
Wife: 33

2 strikes and 2 twists out, 7 escaped villains.

This game my job was to support my wife. She was brilliant by using Apocalyptic Kitty Pride "Disrupt Circuits" card. This card states:

2+
You get +1 attack for each Tech Hero in the HQ.

So, we just stopped recruiting tech heroes. This helped her achieve almost every time 5 attack just from this card.
