Warlord beats Troll, Troll beats Elf, Elf beats Water Sprite, and basically everything else beats Enchanted Bunny.
How balanced is this game? Played the first time yesterday and it ended up pretty lopsided. Are you seeing Founders or Vox Populi winning more?
Neither faction is stronger than the other in our sessions. It comes down to the play style and Bioshock experience of the player.
I think the NPCs can swing the game if you don't handle their interaction properly. In one of our sessions, Vox was ahead 6 to 2. Then Booker attacked Vox to save Elizabeth. Vox player spent a lot of cards to defeat Booker. However, I capitalized that round and attacked him hard and instantly tied the game. I ended up winning two rounds later. During that situation, I would have not played cards and lost the fight to Booker and lose control of that territory 2 VPs and maintained the lead. By exhausting almost all of his cards, the Vox player left themselves at a huge disadvantage at a good time for me.
