Those mineratures had been caged long enough. Apocalypse sitting on the board is just a sight to behold. He towers over everything and completely occupies the street spaces. If there are other tokens or mineratures in the space it is hilarious as the hero players have to physically pick up the minerature to check what they are moving into.
The dominate mechanic is a welcome addition and adds to the strategy of both sides. Should the unwounded hero use a city space with two heals and a repent just so Apocalypse can't summon two monsters and a corruption token? Should the sins player add apocalypse's dice to a roll or use the city action to block the heroes from using it?
I was the sins player (Sloth) and the heroes were utterly destroyed in this game. Probably the most lopsided victory in my 8 games thus far (it was a one on one battle). This was most likely due to me being more familiar with the new mechanics because the heroes let Apocalypse dominate with impunity (no blocking or anything). I can't wait to give it a shot as the heroes.
I'm not even close to being tired of the base game but I just had to give it a go. We'll be playing it again soon of course... the heroes player wants her revenge.
You summon the two abominations but the goal isn't to kill them. You have to collect the NPC's and bring them to the starting space. It isn't as easy as it sounds (Apocalypse always respawns immediately and there are tons of tokens on the board). Plus, once you kill the avatar it cannot be resummoned unless apocalypse dominates a district with the heal icon. Another twist is that the heroes choose the spawning location of the avatar and demon.

I don't think you suppose to take that so literally. It's more of a "Come and get us you ugly mofo!" and then the Sin places them. You might be right, it's hard to tell. It could very easily be as you say. Considering how hard the B path looks that could be just the help the Heroes need.
