    KennedyHawk2 got a reaction from Derrault in Ultron Expert vs Multi-player   
    If you want some tips against expert Ultron look for some AOE style skills. Squirrel girl can ping all the drones for 1 (wiping the board).
     
    Black Panthers energy daggers can do the same. Or be saved for the end GK long everything for 2.
     
    Consider bringing tac team and getting 2-3 out before you flip Ultron so you can clear the drones each round and focus damage on Ultron. 

    Relentless Assault can also help manage droids and focus down Ultron.

    Along this tangent, I believe some people are wondering if you’re supposed to shuffle his deck after searching the top 5. (The rules only say you have to shuffle after searching your whole deck; many cards tell you to shuffle, anyways).

    on Hawkeye's Quiver, after searching do you put the other cards back in any order you choose?

    I’ve worked on some challenge modes to be mixed in with standard or expert villains.

    You can just put an environment card into play to begin the game. You can use challenge 1 with any of the current villains. And I’m making a challenge card for each other scenario (just mutagen formula still to figure out). They do as much as they can to provide a challenge while still mainly focusing on the cards in a villains deck. Rhino example attached.
     
    its made to give the players interesting choices... is it worth it to get rid of that side scheme? Can we handle a charge?

    I did notice a couple of typos on the Joining the Crew card.
    There should be a comma after defeated, and "villains discard pile" should be "villain's discard pile" in the Forced Interrupt section. Also, under the Forced Reaction section, there should be a comma after "phase".
    Not trying to nit-pick, just saw them and thought I'd mention it.

    A thread for card interactions that you had not realized were there, even after dozens of playthroughs. 
     
    So, I’m in the midst of finishing up my She-Hulk Aggression run at expert Ultron with the Masters of Evil, on my nearly last play to win, and for whatever reason I pause and take a real look at the Hellcat card text, which reads:
    Action: Return Hellcat to your hand. 
     
    And, it occurs to me, for the first time in maybe 200+ games...that doesn’t require her to exhaust. 😳🤭🤯
     
    So, what (possibly really obvious) thing did it take you forever to realize you were doing wrong?

    Any plans to put these in a PDF document formatted to print multiple cards on a page with card backs? I like to have Staples print off stuff like this so it comes out looking really nice, and not having to do individual pages for each card makes it cheaper to do

    Mutagen formula for sure. On BGG I’ve been working on some 1 card custom additions that increase each villains difficulty. Here is the one for Risky Business if you want to try it out. It keeps with his shallow kill theme and resource management (you need to manage when your team runs out of cards in deck).
