We have been super excited to get our hands on the upcoming Legendary Big Trouble in Little China game from Upper Deck. As GenCon approaches, we are finally starting to get details on the game mechanics.

While the general mechanics of the game will remain the same, there are two new additions to the game; Mediocre Heroes and Chinatown.

In Legendary®: Big Trouble in Little China the starting hands have changed from the previous version of Legendary. Each player will start with 6 Chang Sing Strategist (Recruit) and 4 Chang Sing Warriors (Attack).

To get to the full 12 card starting decks players will also add 2 Mediocre Heroes. All Mediocre Heroes give a standard 1 point of Recruit. They each can increase, or decrease (Jerk), in power as the game goes on.

There are 12 different Mediocre heroes in the set, which is an interesting mechanic, but when those Mediocre heroes are the main characters of the movie, I really want to know who the other characters are included that players will buy to build their decks.

The other addition to the game is the inclusion of Chinatown. While other versions of Legendary include Streets and Rooftops, in Big Trouble in Little China, those are now referred to as Chinatown.


Heroes, Villains, Masterminds, and even Schemes may refer to Chinatown and may gain or lose effects based on what is happening there. Additional previews will touch on these cards and how they interact with that mystical part of the City.

Legendary Big Trouble in Little China arrives in August and is available for pre-order now.
