Loved the film. What's the game like? :)
The most shocking fact about war is that its victims and its instruments are individual human beings, and that these individual beings are condemned by the monstrous conventions of politics to murder or be murdered in quarrels not their own. Aldous Huxley

It's kind of silly to investigate whether or not a Clinton is lying. That's sort of like investigating why the sky is blue. Banzai_Cat

Same as the other two Legendary Encounters games.  I have both the Alien and Predator versions, which are surprisingly thematic for deck-building games.

I'm just concerned that this version will be pretty short on content.  The Alien one uses stuff from four different movies.  Predator uses it from two and also adds a purely competitive game mode, in addition to the previous co-operative one, to make up for it.  But Big Trouble was just one movie, so they'll either have to really stretch it or cut it small.

The component list on says it will only be 350 cards.  I think the other sets came with almost twice as many.  So, yeah, it may be rather small in comparison.
