Regarding the gameplay, wonder dagger emphasize combos and synergies. There are two types of tokens in the game: Empowered and Primed. If a hero has an empower token, it will help him succeed on an attribute check (or dice roll). A Ready token helps that hero attack an enemy.

Aggression allows you to deal more damage, while Determination allows you to roll extra dice to overcome difficult challenges.
