I have a problem with the timming. When do i have to play this card? After the boost card is turned faceup or before when i have to declare defense? I struggle with the new defence rule. We played this card always after the boost card turned face up. This proved to be very effective since when only one or no boost icon shows off this card is not effective. cheers
Held Unterbrechung (Verteidigung): Sobald du beim Angriff des Schurken eine Boost-Karte auf ihre offene Seite gedreht wird, hebe alle Boost-Symbole () auf der Karte auf. Füge dann dem Schurken für jedes auf diese Weise aufgehobene Boost-Symbol 1 Schaden zu.
The rules change to Defense makes this card much stronger than it looks. It can make you a Defending character long after the basic defense window is passed, but the real power of this card lies in its power to save a Tough card. Effectively, you make a basic defense when attacked by the Villain. This lowers the Villain's attack by your defense. Preemptive Strike takes out the Villan's boost card. What does this mean? It means if the Villain's attack is equal to or lower than your defense, its attack is zero. With no boost cards, it will deal no damage. Which means any existing Tough cards you have on you are saved for another attack! I find this card is great in Protection cards that run Tough, like Doctor Strange or Colossus!
