I've yet to play a game, but have been pouring over the booklet and cards to try to decipher how these guys work.
Now, their 'goons' (Kairai) have pretty below average stats. They're slow, CB is below par and they don't seem to have as many wounds as other 'goons'/ However, with Kato they simply will not die. And that is awesome. So I'm guessing the idea is to bog the enemy down with an unstoppable wave of Kairai.
This brings up the question of Ki, of which none of our goons generate by themselves. This means if you want to stock up on them that Kato and Ikiryo are going to be lacking somewhat as all their Ki gets stolen. You want to be keeping Ki on Kato for mannequins and to pass around 'rise again', which is going to be quite a strain on his Ki. Ikiryo wants to keep a few a well, otherwise she'll just die horribly.
So I'm wondering of you folks who have played if you could outline your basic strategy and how well (and easily) it was pulled off.
I'm up against the Prefecture next week and looking at their cards gives me the heebie-jeebies! Hiro is just so scary!
