I'm back from vacation, and ready to roll out another one... This time, the dice are giving us a classic fight and setting.

Our Villainous Adversary:

Grand Warlord Voss - Alien Aggressor



The Battleground

Insula Primalis - Because, Hello, Dinosaurs!!!



Our Heroes:

Legacy - Defender of Terra



Mr. Fixer - Not Impressed by Armies



Haka - Just try to keep him away... Actually, no. Don't try that.



The Naturalist - *silence*



Tachyon - Smart, brave, and a wee tad hyper.




The order of play will be as listed above. Players may choose any official version of their chosen hero. Play mode (Normal, Advanced, Challenge or Advanced Challenge) will be decided by a vote amongst the players.

If you want in, post below. We are newbie friendly. Please note in your post whether or not you are currently playing in (not moderating) a forum game here on BGG; preference in placements will go to players without a current game. Because #70 is almost finished, I am waving the usual "not in another game" requirement; five spots, first come, first serve.

Looking forward to playing with you!

Advanced Voss, side A: reduce damage dealt by heroes by 1
Advanced Voss, side B: At the end of the Villain turn, play the top card of the Villain deck

Challenge Voss: Whenever Grand Warlord Voss flips, play the top card of the Villain deck

(Thanks as always to coltsfan76 and catwhowalksbyhimself for the spiffy banners.)

It is Archr's pick.

Re: PBF #74 - Minions on the Menu
Are we playing in the order that we pick the heroes? If so, then I'll pick Legacy - the sooner Legacy goes in the turn, the better, in my experience.

However, if the turn order will be randomized after this, then I'll pick the Naturalist - I have played him the least.

I'm fine with any Voss mode - though since I've only played Voss on standard, I'd like something other than standard mode.

Re: PBF #74 - Minions on the Menu
I believe the order of play is what is listed above. So Legacy will be first no matter who chooses him, then Fixer, Haka, etc.

This is correct; the turn order is determined when the random heroes are chosen. Legacy will be first, regardless.

So Shawn, I take it you are playing the Naturalist? If so, it is Brian(ColtsFan76)'s turn.

We have one vote for Challenge and one vote for "not standard".

If either of the two who have picked intend to play a variant character card, please state that.

The remaining heroes are Legacy and Mr. Fixer.

We have one vote for Challenge mode, one for Advanced mode and one for anything but Standard.

It is CrazyRich428's turn to pick.

Re: PBF #74 - Minions on the Menu
I've never even heard about challenge mode. I don't care which version we play. I know it's not my choice, but if CrazyRich is on the fence, I love being Legacy.

Re: PBF #74 - Minions on the Menu
I'll take Mister Fixer and am cool with whatever difficulty others want. I've never defeated Voss on anything but standard so am up for a challenge if we want to try.

I'll repost soon with variant pick

Re: PBF #74 - Minions on the Menu

We now have each hero claimed; we still need variant choices for Mr. Fixer and Legacy.

I recommend the excellent databse of card texts found at

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1F-4drbJyXUWxFg_EzzBs...

to reference available variants.

The mode vote stands at one for Advanced, one for Challenge, one for anything but Standard, and two abstentions. If either Mike or Rich would vote, we could come to a decision.

I'm going to go ahead and get people's hands out to them. (Check your Geekmail.)

Re: PBF #74 - Minions on the Menu


Challenge mode it is!

We still need the variant choice on Fixer, but I'm going to start things up while we wait.

I will be modifying the format slightly for this game; the minion's special abilities will appear in the cards-in-play list, instead of Villain effects section. I hope this will be easier to use.

Good luck, heroes!

Re: PBF #74 - Minions on the Menu


Tachyon appeared in the Freedom Tower's main lounge with a thunderclap and a swirl of air.
"Vossisbackhe'slandedintheAntarcticlookslikehemaybetryingtotakeoverDawn'soldbaseontheInsulaPrimalis..."
"Dinosaurs!" crowed Haka, closing his copy of "Great Expectations". "And minions... Voss always brings hordes of minions for me!"
"Doesn't matter how many," Fixer opined. "Just gotta take out the head man."
"True," Legacy agreed. "Let's do so very firmly this time, and see if we can't discourage future incursions."
The Naturalist, already on his way to the transport bay, grunted. Everyone paused at the unusual vocal response.
Legacy sighed. "Yeah, you're probably right."
