I was very pleased to see that the Hero Kids Compatibility License gained another producer. Super Kids and its first adventure, "New Recruits" are both solid efforts. I look forward to giving it a go with my two boys and their pals soon.
I agree with Scott G's review of this product completely. I too thought to myself, "what if my boys had a LIST of powers and stat dice that could be "bought" in a balanced fashion" so they could create their OWN superheroes? That would be "super" cool! Also, I might think to raise the dice pools and power levels and/or amounts of powers available to the Super Kids (hey, these kids are SUPERS and they will be doing city-smashing battle with SUPER VILLAINS).
I also would've liked to have seen more "meat" in this work for the price point as it is an "expansion" into a huge new genre for Hero Kids. More info on Capital City and some Super Villains and lesser thugs (and their stats) would've been great for an easier "open the box and play" feel.
I love the cover art and the character art for the book. They keep with the Hero Kids style and really shine. The character samples are diverse and well balanced for game play.
I am sparked by this book and happy to see some interest in the setting and genre for Hero Kids and young players. Nice job!
