I recently posted my solo session since I thought I had scored pretty high, but then I broke my own record
So instead of making multiple posts, how about creating a thread where people can post their highest score? No cheating please
So, I played my 5th game, with normal rules and with all elements picked randomly. These were the results:
Scheme: Portals to the dark dimension
Heroes: Gambit, Deadpool, Captain America.
Villain: Masters of evil
Henchmen: Hand ninjas
4 Mastermind tactic = 20
12 Bystanders = 12
2 Ultrons = 4 + 8
Baron Zemo = 4
Melter = 3
2 Whirlwind = 4
3 Hand ninjas = 3
4 Scheme Twist = -12
Total = 46
6 SHIELD Agents
4 SHIELD Troopers
1 Hypnotic charm Gambit
2 Card Shark Gambit
4 Stack the deck Gambit
2 Hey, can I get a do over? Deadpool (ability used once only)
2 Oddball Deadpool
2 Here, hold this for a second Deadpool
2 Diving block Captain America
3 Perfect teamwork Captain America
Most of the points were thanks to Deadpool's ability to put bystanders at risk, just to save them a bit later Stack the deck was pretty useful too.
I played a game last night, just a 2 player game. We used random for all choices and ended up with:
Scheme = Prison Breakout
Scheme Twists = 11 (for extra difficulty with 2 players)
Mastermind = Dr.Doom
Henchmen = Doombots and Savage Land Mutants
Villains = Brotherhood and Asgard Villains
Heroes = Black Widow, Deadpool, Nick Fury, Hulk and Hawkeye
Friend's final score = 35
My final score = 50
Friend had many Black Widow cards out to gain 20 something Bystanders by the end. The first uncommon Black Widow card only came out as we were about to end the game though. So he didn't get to take advantage of the Bystanders for damage until the final turn.
I killed many Doombots early on and got my deck down to 8 cards quite early. I also bought a BattleField Promotion on my first hand, and very quickly got rid of all my Shield Agents. All the Scheme twists caused quite a few villains to escape. One turn, we had 5 villains escape in a single start phase due to the scheme twists.
Once I had 4 Maria Hills I bought both the Hulk Rare and then the Nick Fury Rare. I then managed to get my cards down to 8 with the Nick Fury card. I was then, with the one hulk card I had, and my Hulk Rare, doing 12 damage every turn. This was in addition to the destroying any unit I wanted to each turn with my Nick Fury Rare (there were about 15 Shield Agents in the KO pile).
In the end, I had all 20 points from the Mastermind cards, all the high scoring ones from the Asgard cards. A few Bystanders, as well as many Henchmen.
Was the best game of Legendary I have ever played
Ulm / Neu-Ulm
Played a solo game today with the Advanced Solo Mode rules (5 Master Strikes etc)
Everything was picked at random and after 5 horrible losses in “Ghost Stories” I was in dire need of a win… Luckily I won.
Scheme: Transform Citizens into Demons
Heroes: Daredevil, Elektra, Wolverine (X-Men)
Henchmen: Hand Ninjas
4 Mastermind Tactic: 24
10 Bystanders formerly known as Demon Goblin Villains: 10
2 Hand Ninjas: 2
5 Jean Grey’s aka Goblin Queen: 20
2 Scheme Twists: *6
Wolverine is just awesome. Tons of card draw and decent Attack. Together with Elektra they were a powerhouse sometimes giving me 15 – 20 Attack. This was much needed as weirdly enough 4 Master Strikes had been in play giving Stryfe 12 Hitpoints early on in the game. (Tactic Card giving him another HP through a Wound/Master Strike)
On the plus side only 2 Scheme Twists appeared and I was able to kill the Demon Goblin Villains pretty fast.
I guess with this scheme it is even possible to gain a lot more Victory Points than I did because I didn’t really defeat a lot of villains before pummelling Stryfe.
Okay “Ghost Stories” it’s time for my first win now……… Maybe
I don't have all the details but I played a game and ended up with 84 points at the end (even after subtracting 18 for 6 twists having occurred). It was a bit absurd. Here are the details I remember.
Villain Group: Emissaries of Evil
Henchmen: 3 Doombots
Scheme: Transform citizens into demons
Heroes: Blade, Domino, Iron Fist
I almost didn't win because there were only 2 cards left in the hero deck, and I think 3 or 4 in the villain deck. Got tons of points because I had to kill so many demons just to be able to kill the demon queens that popped up, so I ended up with almost 30 bystanders in my victory pile.
I've played solo against Apocalypse 7 times and only won once, but it was a doozy. I scored 106 points. Yes, you read that right, 106. Here's some details:
Scheme: Transform Citizens to Demons (defeated 11 Jean Greys for 44 VP)
Mastermind: Apocalypse (24 VP)
Villain: MLF (all but 1 of the Zeros, 24 VP)
Henchmen: Hand Ninjas (2 VP)
Bystanders: (24 VP)
Twists: 4 (-12 VP)
Total: 106 points
Pretty sure I'll never reach those lofty heights again.
Edit: The heroes I used were: Black Widow, Iron Fist, Punisher. This game was a while ago so I don't remember exactly what combos I used but Black Widow was certainly instrumental in helping rescue bystanders!

They call me Mister...
Just played my first proper solo session and think I lucked out, seemed a pretty high score. Hopefully I scored it right, let me know if I got anything wrong. I randomised things using a handy little free app and this is what I got:
Scheme: Replace World's Leaders with Killbots
Heroes: Spider-Man, Iceman & Black Widow
Mastermind: Dr Doom
Villain: Spider foes
4 Mastermind tactic + 1 Mastermind = 25
15 Bystanders = 15
Venom = 3
2 Lizard = 4
Doc Oc = 2
Green Goblin = 4
1 Doombots = 1
3 Scheme Twists = -9 (I didn't count the three twists placed during set-up, is that right?)
Total = 45
Black Widow proved a total force in this Scheme, at one point two of her cards plus 1 Spider-Man took out three Mastermind tactics in one go.
Might have to ban her from this scheme in future...

I've been keeping an excel file with my solo plays. Here's the result of my highest score, though I don't remember the details. Also, I pick my team's three stars (like in a hockey game), with * being the best/most important to my team's success.
Black Widow*, Moon Knight**, Captain America***
Mysterio/Unleash the Power of the Cosmic Cube
Maximum Carnage/Maggia Goons
Win, 27 minutes, 99 points (reduced from 111), Mastermind hit 5 times (Knockout blow)
My next highest (and without Mysterio fudging the numbers) is:
Bishop*, Cable**, Black Cat***
Carnage/Transform Citizens into Demons
Win, 37 minutes, 70 points (reduced from 88), Mastermind hit 5 times
Also of note, my quickest defeat was in 4 minutes to Galactus...
Sorry to bring back an old thread - just completed a game that I won... and scored -9 points. Didn't feel like much of a victory...
