DESPERATION EXPANSION

The Desperation expansion consists of twelve cards. The additional monster and spells can just be mixed into the original game. The new heroes, however, are a brand new gameplay feature of this expansion; instead of playing a card, a player can choose to use the ability of their hero. These abilities cannot be countered by counter tokens!
