I'm just looking through all the cards for the first time (picked the game is today). What keeps Kong from being OP? Huge stats and direct damage for nearly half your opponent's life seems crazy.

Play the game a few times. (spoiler: I don't think Kong is OP -- The game in fact is very very subtle. but it's hard to miss that coming from other games.)

All cards in Epic are OP. But if I were to pick an OP OP card from Epic it wouldn't be Kong. He's good, but only in specific situations.

I'm not sure if I understand your post correctly but you can't deal the direct 13 damage to your opponent. It has to be a champion.

Also, if Kong is the *only* Champion in play, he has to be the target of his own ability, as there is no "may" in the ability text.

Kong isn't OP. He doesn't take out Kong, which I heard is OP.

Kong's tribute ability only hits a champion.
