Legendary Showdown: Presidential Edition

Each player controls a line of presidents. At the end of each round, the presidents at the front of each player's line will engage in battle. The victor continues battling, and the rest are removed.

To ensure your president's victory, there are numerous underhanded strategies you can employ.  You can give your presidents special bonuses that increase their strength, or you can give your opponents terrible bonuses to put them at a disadvantage.

You can also play cards to rearrange the order of your line, allowing a stronger president to compete, or rearrange the order of another player's line, forcing them to use a weak president.

Facedown cards can be employed to give your president a secret point bonus or ability, so you can never be sure which player is in the lead.

Action and instant cards allow you to mess with another player's strategy or swap your weaker presidents for stronger candidates.

The round continues until all players but one declare they are ready for battle by passing on their turns instead of playing cards. Players can gain a strategic advantage by delaying their actions until later in the round, but waiting too long might cause the battle to start before you've made your move.  Can you employ mind games to deceive other players while waiting for the right moment to spring your trap? Will you reveal your strategy too early, or perhaps wait too long and miss your chance? Legendary Showdown combines oneupsmanship, bluffing, strategy, and humor for a game everyone will love.

 

Legendary Showdown:

I have been a fan of tabletop games for quite a long time. So while I could compare it to other games, I could see that this game had some killer new gameplay elements to make this a fun game. This has become one of my go-to games for introducing people to tabletop games. My coworker who has never played any tabletop games before has become obsessed and often will give up other opportunities to play Legendary Showdown. I've never seen a game do this before in all my many years introducing people to tabletop games. He was bummed when he couldn't get a copy for himself, so much so that when the webstore finally opened, he bought 3 copies; one for himself and two as gifts. Get the game, you'll love it.

-John U.

Legendary Showdown: Machines and Magic:

Killer Robot Games have really outdone themselves on this game. It's a fantastic card battle game that really feels complete using it's one set of cards. Easy to learn and always fun, it's become a staple of board game night at my place. Not to mention that every card feels unique and the humor and art styles are fantastic.

-Josh

Legendary Showdown: Gamer's Quest:  

Extremely Fun Game. The artwork and the text on the cards are very well thought out and make the game interesting and challenging every time I play with my friends. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS GAME.  

-Timothy G.
