Marvel Legendary Secret Wars Volume 2 unboxing and Review

Marvel Legendary is a solo and co-op card game, where you lead your team of heroes, (or villains) against a mastermind to take them down.  We looked at one of the "core" games, Marvel legendary villains before, so now to look at one of the other  available expansion packs and see what it adds.  we looked at Secret Wars volume 1 last time, so now onto Secret Wars Volume 2.



Legendary: Secret Wars - Volume 2 allows players to play through the Secret Wars storyline within Legendary!
With sixteen all new Heroes, six new Villain groups, four new Masterminds and six new Schemes ready to challenge players like never before! Players can work both with and against other players to defeat the various Battleworlds while laying waste to planet Earth and, for the first time ever, players can now play as the Mastermind against the other players!
The game features playable characters from the Illuminati, Cabal and favorites from alternate universes including Beast, Capt Britain, Spider Gwen, Ruby Summers, Dr. Punisher The Soldier Supreme and many more!
Build your team to battle against the various universes in Battleworld including the X-Men '92, Mrs. Deadpool and the Howling Commandos, Deadpools Secret Secret Wars, and the Masters of Kung Fu!
350 new cards, all with new content will add a huge amount to your game, 4 masterminds will really change up the way you play as well, adding more and more content, combined with the Villians set, and the previous expansions we now have 1200+ plus cards to chose from.

Lets pop it open and take a look whats inside......

Just like marvel legends, and secret war volume 1, the box makes for an excellent card storage system with foam blocks in to keep it all nice, and you do get apart from all the cards a double sided rule sheet.  The rules sheet does not cover the full game rules, you will need a core game for that, but it does tell you about the new cards, and some new rules that are implemented in this set, and there are quite a few to keep track of.
Yes..... that's a dinosaur!!! that's kind of cool.  With 350 extra cards all with new artwork though, it will take you a while to find all the hidden goodies this set has.
In excellent news for me.... more Deadpool options!, in slightly odd news... Howard the duck and doop.  It is great though that are getting so much variety.
rocket makes a welcome appearance, as do some really cool "calss of `92" X men, giving you classic art work and different versions.  Its a great set for artwork, and variety, so these should really add to your Marvel Legendary collection nicely.
You get a lot in this expansion box, 350 cards.... and as you can see above, plenty of variety too in new types.  Adding New Masterminds really will change the game up, as you can use them mixed in with the schemes of the original set to create an even larger pool of variety to battle.

All in all an excellent pack, more for the Marvel Hardcore fan as i did not know some of the characters, or really understand the Marvel multiverse theory, i mean.. dinosaurs.... talking ducks.... its a bit crazy, but then, its fun to find out and learn more.


with an RRP of £33.99 this expansion they will add hours of deck building let alone game play to your collection! so head over to your local game store and join the secret war.
