Marvel Legendary is a cooperative deck-building game where you work with your favorite comic book heroes to go toe-to-toe against classic villains. With literally hundreds of heroes and dozens of Masterminds to choose from, you never have to play the same game twice! With keywords and abilities that can make the game a simple jaunt for beginners or complicated, crunchy puzzles for experts, Legendary can grow with you and create hours of fun for any table.

"Betrayal at the House on the Hill" starts as a cooperative game with players taking on the role of paranormal investigators and urban explorers checking out an abandoned old mansion mansion. You build the board as you go by flipping tiles and revealing new rooms in the house. Together, you will discover--and eventually defeat--the Traitor among you who sets a terrifying Haunt in motion! With delightful horror themes and over a hundred randomly-selected stories to play through, "Betrayal" keeps players guessing and can be as immersive or casual as you want it to be.

Session Details :

For my Guru sessions, I will be teaching the core game play rules and mechanics to newer players, followed by a complete play through of the game. I'm extremely passionate about the games I've listed and I love teaching new players not only how to play these games, but how to have fun doing so while gaining an edge on your friends and family!

After breaking down the rules in a concise, easy-to-understand manner, I'll point out opening moves and strategy tips to those interested, and will provide constructive feedback during and after the game if people are looking for it.

The goal of my session is to make sure you have fun, whether you end up liking the board game or not (though I think you will!). If I play along with the group, I'll play at a skill level that matches the average player in the group so that the competitive balance isn't thrown off and no one feels bad about being a totally new player.

I'm also very happy to sit out during the games and "coach from the sidelines" if players have a full group to play the game or just want to play with their friends!

Ultimately, anyone that participates in one of my Guru sessions will be treated with great respect and patience, and will leave with a full understanding of how to play the game. They'll also gain basic strategy tips and advice for the game and will have the option to be taught even deeper strategy if requested.
