No die may have more than its max # of dice assigned to it.
No player may bring more than 20 Character or Action Dice.
A player may not bring two characters with the same name, even if they have different subtitles (i.e. Wolverine: Wanted, and Wolverine: Canucklehead).
Each player must bring exactly two different Basic Action Cards.
