Aeon’s End: Legacy is a full campaign, where you’ll build your character over multiple chapters, fighting increasingly powerful nemeses to defend Gravehold, the last bastion of humanity. At the end of each game, you will choose new upgrades for your character and more powerful player cards to add to the market. At the end of the campaign, you’ll have unique characters, new nemeses, new player cards, and new basic nemesis cards that you can play with indefinitely and/or play with all the other Aeon’s End content released.
Aeon’s End: Legacy is unlike other legacy games – it is a full campaign, a stand-alone game that can be replayed over and over again, and an expansion.
Aeon's End is not required to play Aeon's End: Legacy.
Aeons end is a fantastic card game where players play cooperatively. As turns progress players buy more powerful spells from the central supply pile, while trying to unleash spells on the nemesis (bad boss) and the minions that they summon. Since this is a legacy game your mages start very basic and as the game goes you permanently unlock now powers and abilities for your mage, and also new spells for the central supply pile. The games cards makes playing together vital, their are also a few unique mechanics of unlocking spell gates so you can load and shoot your spells.
I played this with my girlfriend and it played fantastically as a two player game, but can see it more challenging (the good kind) with multiple players as the turn orders are randomised.
The game also comes with a story which runs as you play the game which for us increased the immersive factor, as we both love reading the cards and getting into character.
Aeons end is a card franchise, and i recommend anyone new to the universe to start here, as it slowly introduces all the game complexities over multiple games. If you are familiar with previous aeons end games then some of the unlocks will be predictable.
All around a great game, this franchise scores highly on boardgame review websites for a reason! Get into it
