We just had our first showdown with Butcher and he completely annihlated 2 of our survivors with Devour Lantern.
That card alone shut down any successful hits (besides lantern 10) and made our fight against him miserable.

I already love the game, but I am surprised to see there's no mention about the unfairness of it
Seriously, he was down to the last AI card and the Cat Gut Bow survivor all alone almost ended that monster if only he had not crushed the precision of the other 2 survivors

Well, I am completely clueless in regards what's going to happen further down the game, so I presume you thought this was cute when I expected to find people agonising over this card.

From my perspective, the game was HARD from the beginning (and random(ish)), but I felt everything was going pretty smooth and then out of nowhere this card shows up and completely wrecks things

You know, I thought the collective of community most likely experienced this aswell, early in their KDM career and might have had the same reaction I had, which is an interesting afterthought after the fight.

Ah, okay, you meant that there was no mention of that particular unfairness Yup, the "no spoilers" attitude here and there makes you miss small pearls like Devour Lantern.

Spoiler (click to reveal)
My first L1 Butcher had a deck that ended up being made only by one Devour Lantern and that one card that does brain damage and knocks down. Every turn we were almost helpless. We won in the end, but I forgot to apply its second Dreaded Trophies bonus for a long time, so... I suppose it was brutal.

My second L1 Butcher ended up in the infinite kick loop. He won.


So, be warned that the King's Man is THE WORST.

Just keep struggling, you'll learn to love the brutality.

We just laughed loud out when we saw the face of the new player in our group when his survivor grabbed and lost her head right after for the very first prologue Lion — before the guy had even had his very first turn in this game! That face was Priceless, I can tell. A lesson learned.

I'm a quitter. I come from a long line of quitters. It's amazing I'm here at all.

I can feel bits of my brain falling away like wet cake.

I love and have embraced the brutality, but that card felt sooo out of place and destructive I just couldn't comprehend it!!!

Get used to that I say. I've had showdowns where a survivor gets decapitated before they can even act. Stupid head fragility......

You'll be completely dismayed by some AI cards like those of the Phoenix, Slenderman, or Lion God.
