As a killing machine, Deadpool is very good at what he does. Although at times he can go a bit overboard. This brings us to the newest keyword: Excessive Violence.
Once per turn, you can spend one Attack point more than you need to fight a bad guy “using Excessive Violence.” If you do, you get to use all the Excessive Violence abilities on Cards you’ve already played this turn.
If you’ve played multiple Heroes (even multiple copies of the same Hero) with the Excessive Violence keyword they would all trigger at the same time. And no, you don’t get to save it for later. Stop trying to find loopholes. It’s annoying.
If you fight with Excessive Violence, then draw or play more cards with Excessive Violence abilities later in the turn, it will be too late to use those abilities.
Some bad guys also have Excessive Violence abilities that let you do something awesome. If you spend one more attack point than you need to fight them, you can do that awesome thing!
So join Deadpool and his ‘friends’ this October 12th as they scamper across new schemes, handing out chimichangas and stab wounds. Contact your local gaming store to preorder your copy today.
