just got this and couldnt wait to get it to the table. my girl and i managed to beat the intro scenario after 2 tries. I am fairly sure we were playing correctly.
just to make sure i want to clarify some things.
1. only the defending player may recruit.
2. only the defending player may refresh.
3. when you shuffle in the new monster subdeck, you do not shuffle in the current discard, just add the new subdeck in then shuffle.
3. Correct. If you exhaust the monster deck, you do shuffle in ALL of monsters in the discard pile.
