Wonder Woman: Challenge of the Amazons (Geeky Hobbies): “What really distinguishes the game from many other cooperative games is the fact that players never know exactly what the other players are going to do. The players can come up with a plan, but that is done with imperfect information so some players may change their actions based on what other cards they are dealt.”
