Hello!

I have read some threads, and there is conflicting information about best # of heroes for balance.

We will play on saturday for the first time, and I wanted to know, what would be the best.

Also wanted to know, if it's possible to win for overlord when all players are min/maxing?

Thanks for help!

I think with 4 heroes you get the most out of the game and the balance is OK. I tend to think that each scenario always favors one side so the campaign overall is balanced. We play our campaign with the houserule that the loser of a scenario gets to chose the next quest (except First Blood) This has proven really effective to prevent an everlasting snowballeffect to one side.

3 heroes is actually easier for the Heroes. 2 is easier for the Overlord. 4 seems to be the "right" balance.
