I think it sounds clumsy and kind of silly. Just give us a full co-op.

I thought the same but...after i looked at it some more... it is full coop!. The team angle can be ignored. I tried this with the zarakov scenario for us to test with my wife.

We played as one team 2 pc each,and simply performed the AI board after our turns.

Frankly i think full coop is there its just acstrtch goal with so other cards...

why?
Arcadia Quest do the same(sort of),and it works really well.
Your team will have to fight minions and vilains,and sometime other heroes.

I am eyeing this one as well. I didn't back the first one, but it sounds like they are coming into this second KS project with a bit more control over things.

I'm just reading the rules now (both the first and second game) and it sounds really interesting. I may be able to get my hands on the first season game for a reasonable price and it would appear that it is fully compatible with the second season. Has there been any mention of any plan to create AI boards for all of the first season villains? I can see they made one for Doktor Skarov....

I like the idea of the "co-op but not really" type game. I have a copy of Heroes Wanted (which oddly enough uses a hand management type system as well) and it is also a game in which each player works as a team to take down a villain, but only one can be the "Headliner". You don't always go after each other directly, but there is a lot of competition. I think the team play is a good way to keep the game challenging.

I also like the sound of how you include team ups. Even in a two player game you can control more than one hero on your team without having to completely manage multiple heroes.

I haven't backed this one yet (soon possibly). I am watching it closely thought....

I think I may have to back this one. My FLGS has a copy of the 1st episode stuff so I may pick that up while patiently waiting for the 2nd episode.
