The team challenge missions are standalone (they do have theme, just not part of an Operation) and they require you to solve a tactical challenge with special rules.
For example, you might be asked to protect something on the map with limited health that all the monsters are focused on, have limited rounds to complete something, or prevent an outbreak of infected creatures whose only goal is to break through your line.
Once you have some regular missions under your belt, I think these will give you and your group an interesting set of challenges. And, of course, you can mix in the Unique monsters to up the ante on these as well :)
The missions are for a normal squad of 4. You can add heroes and increase the size of the spawn pool by 2 minions per player, but the balance might not always be the same as a regular squad (a little harder or easier).
Sounds neat! I don't suppose you can expand on the contents at all, like whether these special rules and win conditions are on cards/paper, what some of them might be, and so on?
@EG Do these missions work for 1-4 players only, or will they work for 5-8 players?
