So my friend had this cunning plan of sending newborns to face our first Hand, but on level 2. They will all die, but then when we face the Next Nemesis of Choice we can choose a Level 1 Hand since we haven't faced one of that level yet and doing so we can send our now elite survivors that we saved from facing him earlier.

Did we understand that correctly?

And would you consider this gaming the board?

Unfortunately you can't select the level of your nemesis. Each time you depart for a nemesis fight you fight the next level up. The first time you fight the King's Man, unless otherwise indicated, you fight a level 1. The next time a level 2 and so forth.

I think the showdown setup instructions for the nemesis say something like "The nemesis is one level higher than you've previously fought". I don't have the book in front of me, but there's wording that confirms that.

Page 83 seems to deal with it:

Nemesis Encounter- Monster Name:... You must select a monster level you have not previously faced.

Seems to me my friend is right.

Except on the setup for The Hand it says "it should be 1 greater than the last The Hand encounter"
So, assuming you somehow fought a level 2 on the first fight (you can't), every fight with The Hand from then on would have to be level 3.
