    Legendary Encounters: An Alien Deck Building Game Review

    In our latest spotlight feature we take a look at the newly-released Legendary Encounters: Alien Expansion. This is the new expansion for 2014's hugely successful game Legendary Encounters: An Alien Deck Building Game.

    The Alien Expansion brings a whole host of extras to the base game, as will be explained in the section below..

    The Game

    Alien Expansion with released over the festive period and boy has it brought a huge Christmas present to fans of the franchise. Players can now take on the role of the Queen Mother, the supreme ruler of the Xenomorphs.

    The Queen Mother comes with her own playmat and has the simple desire of destroying all of the human players in the game!

    Legendary Encounters: Alien Expansion also introduces new Drones, Strikes and Agendas, as well as introducing Hard Mode! This is for gamers who feel like they have accomplished everything they needed to do in the base game. All locations and objectives now have hard mode versions and the game itself will become harder to play - perfect for playing solo.

    Also included in this expansion are two new hives, with stories created just for this game. Each has a location, three objectives and three Hive mini-decks for you to play with - either by themselves or mixed in with the original Hives.

    The roster of characters grows with this expansion to include Lieutenant Gorman, Superintendent Andrews, Captain Elgyn, and Kane! In total there are 400 new cards in this expansion, all of which feature original artwork.

    The Publisher

    Upper Deck were formed in 1988 and started out as a manufacturer of Major League Baseball cards. These cards become a huge hit and quick quickly sell-out, even before they hit the shelves. In 1990 they expanded into the National Hockey League (NHL), National Football League (NFL) and the National Basketball Association (NBA).

    This achievement meant that Upper Deck were the first trading card company in 10 years to be licensed by all four leagues. The company have also worked with franchises such as World of Warcraft, Yu-Gi-Oh! and DC.

    Upper Deck Entertainment is the division that works on the company's board games. Alongside the Alien Deck Building Game, there has also been a Marvel Deck Building Game and a Predator Deck Building Game - both of which have expansions.

    Zatu games have in my experience always been competitively priced and this time I thought I would support a small business (in comparison to Amazon). Even with postage I think the games I ordered were the same price as Amazon. I placed the order around lunchtime on Monday, got a dispatch notification later that day and by 8am Wednesday I was ready to pester my wife to play the new game with me (and I had chosen the standard delivery method). Cheers Zatu.
