I created a simple random startup generator using visual basic in Excel.

Just select the number of players and click "Generate," and it will randomly generate groups and show you how to build the Villain Deck. You will have to enable macros in the file.

My crappy programming skills are not good enough to make an ios app or one for a similar portable device, sorry.

The file is available at: https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B4cEIYfk83mmaWZDVFVldkx4dGc

I will also put a BGG link to the file if/when the moderators approve it.

Hope you find it useful!

Wow, I am starting to get blown away by what some of you folks are doing for Legendary. This, my friend, is something we will use internally. Well done!

But where the heck is the single player variant ....sheesh. Just kidding, this is really good.

I just updated the file to support the single-player variant generation.

I wasn't sure of the ruling regarding solo setup with the "Secret Invasion of the Skrull Shapeshifters" scheme, if we're supposed to use 3 heroes or 6 heroes, so I just did it with 6 heroes.

Damn... I spent the last 4 hours working this up in Flash:





I just gotta put in the Hero images and it's done.

Current features (I'll start my own thread, too):
* 1-5 player support
* Fully Randomized
* Supports "Always Leads" (in 2-5 players)

It'll be up tomorrow.

Thank you for adding the solo option! I use your spreadsheet for every game I play and since I mainly play solo it's now perfect. I'm not sure on the ruling either but Secret Invasion is a lot of fun solo with only three heroes. It almost always comes down to the last card in the hero deck.

I hope you don't mind, but I have made serious updates to your spreadsheet. I credited you in the code.

Hi,

I really like this spreadsheet, but I have purchased the "Paint the Town Red Expansion", and I am having trouble writing a macro for the schemes:

"Splice Humans With Spider DNA"

Setup: Include Sinister Six as one of the Villain Groups.

Invade The Daily Bugle News HQ

Setup: Add 6 extra Henchmen from a single Henchmen Group to the Hero Deck.

First, how do I write a macro for the first Scheme when Mysterio leads Sinister Six? They appear twice on my Villain list when when Mysterio is combined with this scheme?

Second, how do I write a macro for the second scheme to add 6 extra Henchmen from a single Henchmen Group to the Hero Deck?

I would appreciate your help.
