New update! Check the change notes or re-read the in-game rules for changes! This update looks to tighten everything up, balance the characters better and speed up gameplay while making each round more exciting.

Let me know any comments or criticisms on the new update!

Is there a video tutorial? Spent hours playing DLID trying to beat it on every difficulty, so much fun. Looking forward to learning this!

New Update is out!

6/20/2018 -
-Character balance pass. Buffed some heroes, nerfed some others.
-New System Failure system implemented for testing! When taking heat while already at 6, you must roll a Red Corruption die, if it shows a bug symbol you have to draw a System Failure event card which will set you back.
-New AI Bot system! Don't have any friends to play the game with? Toss in a couple AI Player cards and see if you can beat the computers! (They do not play by themselves, each Personality Type has it's own card with a unique order of operations.
-Rules have been updated for the new content.

You are getting it correctly. If her Heat Level is 3 and the current Asset Card you're processing has 3 heat gain in the top right. She may discard 1 Asset Card in her hand to instally succed without rolling any Corruption Dice. She also gives 1 heat to another player of her choice.

So could you clarify Alt. Gretchen's Fireball ability? From what I'm getting at is that if her heat is equal to the heat gain on the card, you can discard to succeed, and give someone a Heat.

6 New Alternate heroe's have been added as well as 5 new asset cards!
Dustin  [author] May 29, 2018 @ 6:07pm 
Yes and Yes!

Awesome stuff, but I have two questions.
Each player must individually pay to process a card blocked by Shield Block, correct?
Is Gretchen unaffected by her Chain Lightning ability?

It activates if he fails a corruption roll.

A round is a full circle of players having the active player token.
When you have the active player token, you can play cards that others have a turn to process or use another action on. When all of your cards you have played have been gone through (everyone has had a turn on each card) You pass the active player token to your left and that player then plays cards and everyone gets an action turn for ech of their played cards.
