I was playing with some new players and they all wanted to read all of the cards to figure out which character they wanted to play. Needless to say, it took WAAAAY too long to start the game.
Has anyone created a 1 to 2 sentence summary of each character’s power up cards as a character selection aid so that new players can read the summaries instead of each card when deciding which character to play?
Simply don't let them. It's a light, fun game. I ask people to choose which standee they want, then they get to see the cards for it once they've chosen. Even then I usually suggest they just shuffle them and we get going.
