LEGENDARY ENCOUNTERS - 2014 GAME OF THE YEAR

Friday January 16, 2015

Legendary Encountersí full name is ďLEGENDARY ENCOUNTERS: AN ALIEN DECK-BUILDING GAMEĒ. What a mouthful! They really should have had the confidence to call it THE ALIEN UNIVERSE: THE GAME or something, because this is a cocky, swaggering beast of a game. Not a beast to play Ė it isnít complicated at all. You can teach this game quite easily. But itís a beast of story Ė capturing the feel of the Alien films not just in tone but in little snapshots of gameplay that reflect some of the most iconic scenes in cinema history. And it does all this through cards. Hundreds of them, sure, but still Ė just cards.

The Legendary game system isnít one Iím familiar with. I havenít played the Marvel Deckbuilding game, but Iíve heard a lot of good things about it Ė and this game is based on that system. In fact, you can mix the games to an extent, sending superheroes in to do battle with the Aliens, but I think that would just undo all the great work Encounters does in delivering an accurate Alien experience.

Games like Splendor and Sons of Anarchy and One Night Ultimate Werewolf and Tragedy Looper ran it close, but there is something so rich and impressive about Encounters that just sets it apart. Depending on scenario, the game can be intimate and thinky, or wild and brutal. You will scan for Aliens and find harmless cats that will lick your wounds clean. You will meet Carter Burke, that bastard from the Company, and he will put all your character cards in peril. You might find the power loader, and maybe then youíll have a chance of taking down that Alien Queen.

Legendary Encounters is Alien in a box. I love it. Itís my Game of the Year 2014. Check it out, and soon.
