We know how much longtime players love sidekicks, so we finally found a way to bring them back! That’s right you heard correctly: a whole new group of Special Sidekicks are making their triumphant return to Legendary in the new Messiah Complex Deluxe Expansion!
This set comes with new “Special Sidekicks”: X-Men students, X-Force recruits, and members of X-Factor. When you set up, shuffle them face down into a Sidekick Stack.
• You still “played” that Sidekick and can use Superpower abilities based on its Hero Class. However, since it’s gone, it’s not one of “your Heroes” or “Heroes you have” anymore.
• When a card says “gain a Sidekick,” put the top card of the Sidekick Stack into your discard pile. That doesn’t count against the recruit-one-Sidekick-per-turn limit.
• If you have Sidekicks from other sets, like Legendary®: Secret Wars Volume 1 or Legendary®: Civil War, shuffle them all into a single face-down Sidekick Stack.
I wanted to save the best for last! First, I have a confession to make: I may be Devin Low’s greatest fan.
Now, he and I have been working together for years so you would think that he wouldn’t be able to surprise me. Well, he can and often does! He never ceases to amaze me with what he continues to come up with to add to Legendary to keep it fresh, fun and engaging. Please welcome to Legendary, Mr. Low’s newest twist to this wonderful game – double-sided Schemes! And you thought Legendary had massive replayability before! Now we have schemes that make it so we won’t know how a game may end till during the mid-game. How’s that for some added suspense?
The enemies of mutantkind often hide their true goals until it’s too late. All four Schemes in this set are “Veiled Schemes,” and will say “Unveiled Scheme” on the reverse side. When you use any of these Scheme cards, start with the “Veiled Scheme” side face up. At a certain point, it will say “This Scheme Transforms into a random Unveiled Scheme.” This means you remove the Veiled Scheme from the game, and replace it with a randomly selected “Unveiled Scheme” from all the ones you own. You might randomly select the reverse side of the Veiled Scheme you started with, or you could randomly select the Unveiled Scheme side of a different card.
Well, that’s it for the previews of Legendary®: Messiah Complex. What do you think? Are you as excited about Messiah Complex as we are? We feel this expansion will soon become a fan favorite. Messiah Complex has something for every fan of Legendary: exciting new heroes, truly challenging Masterminds, the return of Sidekicks, extremely suspenseful Schemes, and more! A lot of hard work went into this one, and we’re very proud of what’s included. We hope you love it too!
Legendary®: Messiah Complex will release on January 19th.
