A game of heroes and villains, crime and justice, adventure and disaster. A group of 3-4 players take on the role of a handful of heroes while a single Game Master (the GM) provides opposition in the form of villains, henchmen, hazards, and schemes. A single session of Superlite Heroes! should take about 2-3 hours. To play, you will need a handful of index cards, some pencils, and a six-sided die.
Playing the game is simple, a conversation between players and the GM. The players say what they do, and the GM responds. Sometimes the GM will intrude with opposition and villainy, but for the most part the players are in control. That is, until the triggers for the mechanics occur, at which point the rules take over. Players narrate successes, while the GM narrates failures, then the conversation is resumed.
