Thursday night it was time for Solo: A Star Wars Story, the second Star Wars anthology film after Rogue One and the first to give us modern audiences insight to the origins story of everyone's favourite scruffy-looking nerf herder. But that's exactly what happened to Solo: A Star Wars Story after the majority of filming had been wrapped.

If your team is successful and wins the round, you are unable to use the Heroes that you previously used.
