So in a two player game ( the overlord and one player... ) there are two adventurers, as the single player is supposed to have two adventurers. The overlord would use the monster cards for a two player game.
In a three player game...there are still two adventurers, but the overlord is supposed to use the monster cards for a three player game.
I haven't actually cracked opne the cards yet to have a look at them. I have been too busy formatting the box to hold the plastic tack box and all the figures, etc. Am I missing something? Why should the cards be different for the amount of players in a 2 or 3 player game when the amount of adventurers is the same?
I know I am looking over something obvious.
Thanks!

The cards are identical for 2 and three players. I guess since there are four sides total for two different cards, they decided to just print a "2" and a "3" side (they needed 3,4,5, so they had to use at least 2 cards).

I'd agree with you, if the cards weren't identical for 4 and 5 players...

I'm pretty sure they're not. Check their respective healths.

That makes sense...thanks, James.

No worries, The Dude. We've all been guilty of that at one point or another. Myself more than most, I'd wager
