I have a question about the enemy models choosing a target. I was playing a two player game and we were attacked by tentacles and ambushed by undead. The tentacles had yet to target. They were not in range of player A. The target rules say they target a "different" random hero within range and with the least amt of enemies of that type on them. Would they all attack player B even though the rules say "different random hero? Or would one attack B and the rest move to player A?

"If trees could scream, would we be so cavalier about cutting them down? We might, if they screamed all the time, for no good reason." -Jack Handey
They would all attack Player B because Player A is not in range.

Another way to think of it is that they divide themselves as evenly as possible among heroes in range without regard to other enemy types. So even if one player has 3 Hungry Dead and the other player has none, the Tentacles would try to split evenly between them if possible (not caring about the number of Hungry Dead).

The other way they can end up unevenly distributed is when one player is in the open and another player has few open spaces next to them. They will divide evenly until one player has no more free spaces, then all pile onto whoever is left.
