Of course I've been up all night! Not because of caffeine, it was insomnia. I couldn't stop thinking about coffee.
Here's the scenario:
I have 2 SHIELD agents in my hand for a total of 2 Recruit, 3 SHIELD Troopers, and Legendary Commander Nick Fury. The lowest hero in the HQ costs 3 Recruit.
Can I still "play" the agents, even though they are not enough to recruit any hero's?
Would they count towards NF's ability (You get +1 Attack for each other SHIELD Hero you played this turn)?
Yes to both questions.
