I must be missing something. Each of the six areas can only have one headline, right? So, since there is no real movement and characters can be placed anywhere...what's the point of dividing each area up into 4 districts?

So you can have multiple heroes on the ground there to troubleshoot... that's my thinking anyway

But then the rules seem to imply that you're not restricted to one Hero per district. Moreover, you cannot use Heroes that are in the same area but in another district to help in a given Troubleshooting action.

Why would heros be in the same area as their teammates but not the same district (where the headline trouble is)? Isn't it way too expensive to place heros on the board for no reason?

I only had time for a quick glance through the first half of the rules last night, but is it not so that each of the four (possible) players can each have a superhero in the district, hence there is a district for each possible player?

There maybe something that stops other players going to the same area I dont know, but from my quick look does that make sense?

Re: What's the point of having different districts withen ar
Maybe…
- During the previous game round you solve a headline thus cleaning up the area and district.
- Phase 1: Game Round Setup -> Draw New Headlines: If you lucky (1 in 4 as there are 4 districts) you get a juicy headline in the district you are currently occupying.
- Phase 2: Planning -> Step 2 Assign Super Hero Status: you are allowed to leave your Hero where he is in district and on the board.
- Phase 3: Missions -> Troubleshooting!: If you where lucky you can bypass the movement step and save that action for something more important.

Or maybe…
-One of the scenarios has special rules regarding specific districts. The circle district always has its trouble increased by 2
-One of the scenarios allows multiple headlines per area thus possible filling more districts or making a single district even more dangerous.

Or maybe
-It’s for more use the in Marvel Heroes expansion!

Any word on an expansion?

David is right, the main point of multiple Districts is to avoid that Hero just "stay there" waiting for the next Headline to fall onto them.

You can have multiple Heroes (both of the same player and of multiple players) in the same District, there's plenty of room in each


And of course a more articulated board with buildings and districts leave the game open for future developments - but this is just a side effect, I won't say anithing about an Expansion

An interesting optional rule might be to allow a Hero a free move to an adjacent district providing the hero has a skill which matches the Headline they are moving into, so Hulk and the Thing would always be on the lookout for their next Fight, Daredevil would have an eye out for local Crime etc. (I'm guessing he has this Skill).
