Is there a reason why the Hero cards in the expansion are made out of a stiffer cardboard than the originals? I find it very difficult to shuffle the GvE and RiR hero cards together when playing with both sets. Everything else meshes so well together that I can't figure out why this decision was made.

Our intention was to give the Hero cards a little more table presence without compromising gameplay. We would never change the deck cards, as we most certainly want players to be able to mix their sets together. In watching games at PAX, various other conventions, and our own playtesters, we did not witness any players attempting to riffle shuffle the Hero cards (10 or 20), so it was not foremost on our minds. Thank you for the feedback.

I'd suggest stacking your 20 Heroes and rolling the D20 to find your Hero if there isn't another method of mixing them that creates the level of randomness you desire.
