Dr. Doom
Midtown Bank Robbery
8 Scheme Twists
1 Master Strike
1 full deck of 8 villains (Enemies of Asgard)
3 Henchmen cards from 1 henchmen deck (Savage Land Mutates)
3 full Hero decks (Hulk, Captain America, Iron Man)

I got destroyed. It seemed like the villains deck went way too fast. I never even touched Dr. Doom! Before I knew it, the game was over in a draw. I added up my points. 26, less the 24 points for the twists = 2 points.

Did I set something up wrong?

Did you forget the 12 bystanders?

Just 1 bystander according to solo rules.

No..the 1 bystander is as per the normal setup. You still need to add the 12 bystanders as defined by the scheme...that is how I play it solo.

12 total bystanders instead of the default setup of 1 for solo, its the scheme special rules.

When the scheme card (or any card for that matter) contradicts the rule book, always go with the card. Also, Scheme cards trump Masterminds (this applies for the "Always leads" function).

I've also noticed that the Bank Robbery scheme is actually really difficult. Cap, Hulk and Iron Man are also in that mid-range of costs... most of their cards cost 4 or more to recruit, so that could also be challenging. Generally, it's a good idea to try and have a nice curve from low to high. Or just a bunch of low-cost heroes. I believe something like Spiderman, Black Widow and Gambit make a good team. Of course, that's really to just give you a good idea of how solo play goes. Ideally, you'd be able to play whichever combination you want to play
